    Okay folks, one day left, need to get about four or five more vids in here so I can add another player to the finalist pool for the drawing of that ever so valuable and special Dolphin!

    BTW, I spent an hour out on the porch last night watching the thunderstorms just to the south of us and playing that Dolphin - so it'll be "played in" a little bit for the winner...

    And finally, here's a link I found to something that explains the blues perfectly! Maybe someone can draw a little inspiration from it... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWTKj0rKk_o

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Check out my ukulele-themed "stuff" at http://www.cafepress.com/fivebyfiveukulele - proceeds go to a good cause...UAS treatment!

    I'm recording in the morning. Still a little surprised no one snagged my song, but there's still time yet. If so, I'll have to sing the guess I didn't tape in time blues.

    Hey all,

    So I'm a relatively new ukulele player, and I've been using these contests as an excuse/reason to learn new songs each week (e.g. "You Are My Sunshine" for Smiles and Sun week, and "Sleeping Satellite" for Earth week), but this is the first time I've entered a video. Thanks for watching, listening, and suffering through some awkward chord changes. I'm covering "Backwater Blues."

    You're all witness to my first attempt at 12-bar blues on the uke. I also figured out how loud I can get before my Snowball microphone clips out... Enjoy!

    Oh yeah!
    sing them blues~

    Great entries, all of 'em!

    Nate, I think you must've scored a perfect 10 for that vocal performance, holy cow!

    Doug, I love that song, used to play it in my old trio, still play it sometimes at home but after hearing your rendition I'll probably never play it again... just kidding but no, seriously...

    ukuleledaveey, loved "Ukulele Blues" but dang it, that's what I was gonna call my song! lol... that's ok bro, yours is better, I just made up a new name for mine

    and everybody else too, so much fun to watch and listen to all these Blues vids... gonna make a great playlist!

    OldPharte, thank you so much for puttin' this on, classic Blues music has been a huge part of my life since I was a teenager and I really had a lot of fun doing this...I have been running through the ideas in my head all week, and last night at 2:00am I finally got the chance to put this vid together... drawing inspiration from my favorite Blues guitarists, I strung some riffs together and connected them with some improvised licks... one take on the iPhone again
