This is an invitation to UU members (and lurkers!)
who have never posted a uking video,
but think you maybe...possibly...might like to try it.
All UU members are invited to post a video in a Seasons challenge. After one video post, you become a Seasonista, and the sky will be bluer and your cereal will taste better from that day forward!
If you post videos in subsequent weeks, you gradually develop performance confidence and a bunch of uking buddies who care how you're developing.
The Seasons' founding father is chrimess, who came up with the idea and who posts videos regularly.
Here's generally how it works:
+ Seasons of the Ukulele is a subforum under UU Contests.
+ The Seasons weeks are friendly challenges, not competitions! It's a community of ukers who play and encourage each other. Each Season is hosted by a volunteer Seasonista.
+ Each Season runs from early Sunday to midnight the following Sunday—you have 8 days to prepare and record a video for that week's theme.
+ Each theme is chosen by the volunteer host (you have to be a Seasonista to host) and announced when the Season launches so everyone has the same time to prepare.
+ The host offers some kind of judging, but it's not always based on skills—it may be the feeling you project. Sometimes it's a drawing. Once it was knife-throwing.
+ There are prizes, but they're generally just for fun.
The best things about participating:
1) It builds your confidence. Kindly people—who have all been beginners!—comment encouragingly.
2) It gives you a goal to get good at a song each week.
3) You get to know some UU members better by watching them and interacting on the thread.
4) You can hear a wide variety of songs and styles, many of which may be new to you.
Questions? Ask in this thread, ask any Seasonista, or ask Ralf (Theonlyukethatmatters), who is the Seasons' marvelous Volunteer Coordinator. He keeps the hosting sign-up list and has posted all the playlists in one thread.
Please join us in the Seasons—just one entry makes you a Seasonista!
You don't have to be perfect—you're good enough right now!
