    Default "Play the Beatles, win a uke!" Contest!

    Hey guys,

    Well here it is. Post 1000! Now that I am officially a PW I figured a contest is in order.

    I have a practically new Bushman Jenny Pineapple that can be yours!


    Here are the rules:

    1) One video entry per person! Make it count! EDIT: Enter as many times as you'd like to!!

    2) YOU MUST use an Ukulele! (duh!)

    3) YOU MUST play a Beatles song!

    4) At the beginning of your video YOU MUST say, "I am playing the Beatles and want to win a new uke!"

    Other than that, GO WILD! In can be an instrumental, a solo uke and vocal performance, with a band, multi-tracked or whatever you want! It can be just like the original or completely revamped. (Anyone picture Something in reggae style? ) Get creative.


    JUDGING CRITERIA:

    a) Creativity
    b) Enthusiasm

    Don't be turned off by that!

    The first two are the most important. To win this you need at least a bit of talent and I am sure everyone does.

    Let me put it in a different perspective.

    What if two people made videos of the same song. Both are very enthusiastic and very original and creative. The difference was that one of them could switch between their chords without stopping and the other one had to interrupt the flow of the song to change chords.

    That is when C would kick in.

    ANYBODY can win this contest, just do your best! I am going to change C to Effort because I think that is what I originally meant.
