Ok guys, it's been forever and a day since we've done one of these, but it's time to warm up those vocal chords cause we're bringing back the open mic!

March 28 3:00pm HST (6:00PST)

The last few we've done were a lot of fun and we hope to see a lot of old and new faces.

We're doing it a little different this time, we're going to try it with combo of skype and ustream. If you would like to participate, here's what you will need.

1. A webcam
2. A microphone
3. High speed internets
4. A skype account (it's free)


That's it. If you'd like to participate, please sign up in this thread and add me on skype ukuleleunderground and you'll be all set! We'll be doing sound checks 1 hour prior to the performances.

If you just want to watch, all you need to do is tune in the the front page on that date and time and you'll be able to sit back and enjoy the performances.

Thanks guys, it's going to be a lot of fun.

Theres people of all skill levels that play. You only get 2 songs max so if you only want to play one song that you worked on that's fine. It's all in good fun.

How long should the event last?

Good to see another UU Open Mic being coordinated. Also good to see that there are new people participating. That's great.

I'm not sure how the combination of Skype and Ustream is supposed to work. I have a gig that night and depending on what time we are setting up I might be able to watch some of the performances.

i was playing around with skype and the sound quality on the echo playback soundcheck call was real bad the baritone uke was suuuuuuuper muddy and kept fading out the soprano uke is only slightly better...i went out and bought a new mic nothing fancy but one made for singing and it seems to not have changed a whole lot
is this just because of their recording playback? or will my baritone uke be too muddy no matter what? help...

Haha thanks man.

It was so funny, when I finished I saw a black screen on the UU website. I guess they lost their connection at the end.

I was worried that the it stopped in the middle and that I would have to try again... :uhoh:


Man, the other performers were so great. Props to Guting, I want to play like him someday! They were all so great though... man I wish I could sing!

I learned that I'm not the only one perplexed by Mary Ann's screen name (I say Marmot in my head when I read it, but she is way cuter than a groundhog) and the Puremarkska sounds awesome even with out fancy editiing!! Russ and Gunting..whew! you guys rocked the house! The misses with the cowboy hat (sorry I'm forgetting your name) but you did a great job! Jeeper, your coyote song is awesome! I know I'm forgetting a couple of people (sorry), but everyone did a great job! :nana:

i think the video did not catch me.. but i am sure it is no great loss!! i would just like to see what it looked like from the other end.. i mean my gf was sitting on the bed watching on her laptop.. (and saying nice things about me in the chat room as if i had fans!) but i could not see it.. two of my friends called me who tuned in.. they said it was a cool thing!

we need to do this again.. and soon! i am sure a lot more people will want in on the action.. i am kind of curious to know.. how they linked SKYPE to USTREAM... and if i can figure that out.. i would love to put on something like this! i am thinking of broadcasting the WED open mic i host here in KC this next week..
