CoffeeJunkee and I like Coffee. We also like ukuleles. We think they should mix.

The rules are few.

1. Sing about coffee

It can be an existing song about coffee, a song completely unrelated to coffee but with the lyrics adjusted, or one of your own.

2. Play the ukulele while singing about coffee

3. Say or annotate something stating the video is for this contest, we are not picky

4. There is no limit, enter as much as you like

5. Get them in before Sept. 1'st

6. Go Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1TLECYElRs&feature=channel to learn more about it, we ramble on for a good 5 minutes....sorry

7. That's it those are all the rules


:cheers:

The prize, my friend, is a nearly new Kala Pineapple (silkscreened one) soprano uke with gig bag and a set of koaloha golds. It is currently strung with nearly new aquila strings. I love her but she is neglected, Penelope needs a new home.

A very wise lady once told me....

Listen, the ukulele community has gotta be the most supportive bunch of people ever. It's a bit scary at firt to post- but I think for a lot of us it helps drive us on to become better players, through encouragement as well as feedback & suggestions. It's fun to watch yourself progress too.

C'mon... one of us! One of us!

That lady was Adelle the Great and she is right...and great.

So no worries :)

Original song by Noa and Elli (my grandchildren)
Noa arrived in Finland a few days ago and he has
only been playing the Ukulele for THREE DAYS
and when I showed him UU forums he wanted to
enter the contest with his own song which is an
original called

Coffee Coffee Coffee (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AScHnjVWHfk)

Hows anyone gone top that :D Sweet song!

I am actually enjoying this greatly, drinking a lot coffee for inspiration, writing an own original song (eeks) and researching the dark arts of making chord progressions fit to it! :eek: I wonder if itll sound any decent, but i can always blame it on the triple esspressi intake! :)

Well they are totally surprised that anyone has viewed
their video. They are completely chuffed by the number
of views they have got, and elated that people from UU
have left them coments.

This is a good community that encourages and supports.
It's what everybody needs. not only kids.

Thanks from Elli and Noa

I'm working on something, which would be my first video too (and first original song that I've actually recorded). I could get a plain ukulele and voice version done within a few days, as long as I can figure out the video camera thing (I've done all my recordings with audacity, just audio). I'd like to get a version with a few other tracks from a few friends though (possibly guitar and/or drums, piano) so that might be closer to the deadline, and I'll probably wait to post that one. Anyways cool contest, I had fun doing some song writing whatever I end up doing with it.

marvtobi
07-29-2009, 07:04 AM
I have pretty much finished the songwriting and backing tracks, i did a live version, but for me as a beginner it seems better to do the stuff seperate, so i dont neglect one or another (singing / playing) I am still not sure i can sing it properly, i really dont like my voice. Anyone up to sing it? :confused: :)

Blacktsuba
07-29-2009, 12:02 PM
I'm new to the uke too. (been playing it since March) I like coffee and I just found my video camera again. It looks like I should try and put something together for this one.

[…] researching the dark arts of making chord progressions fit to it!

A music teacher once warned me to always lay down chords before writing the melody. Though it sounds like such advice is a little late in this case. Hopefully it will save you some pain in the future.

marvtobi
07-29-2009, 12:20 PM
Yeah i got some good advice from a friend from sweden who writes pop songs for a living, he also said i should try it the other way round melody->chords. But i can pretty much sing to chords and figure out a melody when i got them as a backdrop. I do it quite intuitive for the most part.

For this one i had chord progression i liked then made up some text and then fit it together, then rewrote the lyrics to make things fit better and get it a bit catchy. It was quite easy to write really, i struggle mainly with singing and recording since i am pretty much on low budget here and never really sang anything... :uhoh: But my brother, whom i tortured with a rough version told me it sounds ok, and gave me some really helpful tips. Ill get there eventually.

Just did a search of coffee consumption by country
and guess who tops the list? Finland consumes per capita
3x as much coffee as the USA, and it looks like the Nordic
countries (Finland Norway Sweden and Denmark) are all in
the top ten. I wonder why that is? Cold countries/hot coffee

1 Finland 12 kg :shaka:
2 Solomon Islands 11.8 kg (2006 data)
3 Norway 9.9 kg
4 Namibia 9 kg (2006 data)
5 Denmark 8.7 kg
6 Netherlands 8.4 kg
7 Sweden 8.2 kg
8 Switzerland 7.9 kg
9 Bahrain 6.8 kg (2006 data)
10 Belgium 6.8 kg

Yay! Now the tough part...... actually recording O____________o
This is always a problem.. It takes me forever to perfect something.
Also, knowing my family, the actual audio may be good, the video itself always ends up ruined.
I'm actually very proud of the song though.
It's pretty good for someone who has never written one before and has no experience haha. :]

I know the pain. I have recorded all the tracks for a multi-track entry… only to find to many unbearable mistakes… I am tempted to just edit the video together and post it so I have something… (and can start working on other things) But when I listen to it I keep coming to the same conclusion: it is aweful but filled with potential.

Sadly that means re-recording all the tracks paying more attention to getting the rhythm section nailed and keeping everything in tune. (I found my vocal tracks and Ukulele tracks subtly out of tune… GARRR!)

:) Maybe we should just happily post it and torture all the others with it :p and not our own selfs hehe.
Yeah i know the feeling. I am into whatnot takes already and i found the ones i took the first day and first try still sound best to me, because there i somewhat put my heart into it and left my head more out of it, if you get my drift.
The music is ok now, i did a short video but i see all the flaws (and hear them) so much, i cant really say i enjoy it. Well i really never do with my music, but i have a deadline for the contest, so i will put something in, be it good or ugly hehe.

My third entry, I found this song while searching Motown artists for another song to cover for the "Shake Your Soul" contest from iamdanielle. What did I find but a Motown song with Coffee!!! It is from Otis Redding, cool song too. I had to enter it in this contest because there are many more Motown songs than coffee songs. I have failed several times at writing my own song. I then rewrote the words to Frank Zappa's Montana to make it about coffee only to figure out is real hard to pull of a Zappa song with a Ukulele (or any combination of instruments for that matter!) If I feel real brave or have a few drinks maybe I will post it anyway. Anyway here is my third entry:

Just for the sake of pedantry, Otis was on Stax/Volt, but definitely soul, definitely eligible for both contests, and a great song! Can't believe I didn't think of that!

I have a new appreciation for the work that Sebi (http://www.youtube.com/user/monsterbazz) and Schuermurrman (http://www.youtube.com/user/schuermurrman) do. I have always loved there stuff but I never fully realized how challenging it is.

Once you have a video be sure to post it in the "First Video (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13155)" thread as well. I only started playing a couple months ago and all the encouragement I have received from the Underground has been so very wonderful.

There is a thread about it over here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15697).

The thread doesn't get too specific, as it really depends what software you are using. It should point you in the right direction.

CoffeeJunkee and I like Coffee. We also like ukuleles. We think they should mix.

The rules are few.

1. Sing about coffee

It can be an existing song about coffee, a song completely unrelated to coffee but with the lyrics adjusted, or one of your own.

2. Play the ukulele while singing about coffee

3. Say or annotate something stating the video is for this contest, we are not picky

4. There is no limit, enter as much as you like

5. Get them in before Sept. 1'st

6. Go Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1TLECYElRs&feature=channel to learn more about it, we ramble on for a good 5 minutes....sorry

7. That's it those are all the rules

Here is the one I most wanted to do: Black Coffee (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRAIlVtJfgM).

After a month of practically non-stop practicing, I can finally play it. Picking a Jazz piece was… overly ambitious. Those chords are brutal. I will say this: Sukie was right. It is all about practice.

Hope everyone enjoys it.

Nice job... I liked it allot. Your voice fits that style of music perfectly.

You are too kind. Big Frank will be turning in his grave. I take my hat off to him and the musicians that played on his version.

Okay folks, the voting starts today..... We will consider any last minute entries that come in today, but nothing after midnight central US time will be considered...

Thanks to all who entered,this is gonna be tough to judge.


Hey all,

There are a few video that are not posted as reponses to the You Tube contest page. Please go back and make sure you post your video as a response. This will just make our judging a bit easier to manage. If you are having trouble let us know.
