Hey, that was really good :D And it was great to observe how you got more confident as you got into it 8) Fab chord changes and good singing too! What are you so worried about, nonchita? :rock: :supz: :clap:

I expect to see a lot more where that came from ;)

You also look like quite the musician with one uke in hand and another up on the wall! Tres cool! 8)

Thanks, guys. :) :oops: :rock: It's more fun without a camera running though. :lol: I can't find where I picked up the chords I'm using. I didn't like the Uke Hunt offering for that song at all, and this one was deliciously complex and frustrating for me. 8) I can't tell you how exciting it is to finally (sort of) master all those changes and challenging chords. Good times. :lol:

It's been a while...


That Bb chord became my new 'E' chord for how difficult I found it to play or change to. I've just about mastered it though. Of course there's a hiccup or two :roll:

:lol: I didn't know Stephen King wrote song lyrics. :roll2: Truly a very pretty tune though.

Your performance was cool, kipples! 8) Great shades! You get a very nice tone on your Bb. I usually muffle it. :?

Thanks Nonch. Yeah the lyrics are totally dark compared to happy mood of the songs.
I'd say the sunglasses will become a regular thing in my videos. No more having to watch my eyes dart all around the place!

Kipples, that was an awesome performance of a cool song! :clap: :clap: I liked the way you changed up the rhythm of your strum for the chorus. Thanks for sharing with all of us again!

:wave: Hi Cheri! :hug: Whatcha playing lately? I would love a video. :D The rest of you WTFIUOers as well. :nod: Are you guys still playing?

Well, I am attempting to branch out and learn some new strums and try some picking as well. :D There are some really good instructional videos out there. This is my first go with the fan strum. :worry: (The strange sound in the background is my dog who is munching loudly on kibble in the hall... sorry)

"Oh, It is Love" by Hellogoodbye. Chords here, Audio here. I found it helpful to learn it with the recording playing. :rock: I plan to keep working on perfecting it and adding some of the other twiddly bits. :)

I can't seem to manage to keep my thumb in play for the fan strum. It always catches and makes an unattractive loud plunk. The video instructors make it look so easy. I'll keep practicing though. :rock:
