Hi fam! I'm been learning how to improvise these past few years and I've picked up some cool-sounding stuff over that time, but now I want to take it a step further. I always play the same stuff and it gets repetitive and boring-sounding really quickly, so I finally decided to record something to look back at and analyze so I can get better at not playing the same stuff over and over again. This is mostly a personal thing so there isn't anything too fancy, but I just wanted to share it with the UU community because this is where I started my journey to "git gud" at the uke.

Here's the video. The background track is Sorry, I Like You by Burbank. Any feedback is appreciated! I'll definitely keep uploading stuff on youtube, but maybe I'll only post about serious improvements here lol


Also, if you're curious, here's the first (https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?94492-Some-Tips-on-Improvising-Major-Keys) and second (https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?108678-Some-Tips-on-Improvising-Minor-Keys) posts I made on how I improvise. So maybe this video will also lowkey serve as evidence that the tips aren't B.S. xD

Thank you for your time! Let's all git gud together :D

It is impressive! All your hard work is paying off.
I am still at the stage of trying to play all the notes right. I am light years away from able to improvise. Someday...

Very pretty! You have a nice feel for the fretboard!
