Don't know if this is appropriate as a Junior Member... The Great Unofficial April 2008 Ukulele Giveaway Contest Thread!

For all your compliments, info exchange, subliminal messages to the *pick me pick me pick me* moderators, and all-round banter about the contest.

Personal impression:
Thinking about making the video was great, then not knowing whether it could be done before the deadline was frustrating, but finding out that Hawaii is a day behind seen from Japan was like a shot of adrenaline and I shot my entry at a park at 7:30 in the morning. Great fun.

I would like to kick off with a question as well: on the entry page, there is some background music that I can't seem to turn down. It makes watching the vids very hard without sound... What is the solution / where is the music coming from??? >> edit: Thanks to Dominator's tip, I was able to turn it off.

im sure Ryan would have made a thread and put their video and some information on www.ukuleleunderground.com home page

your probably excited but it could be a while for an answer to come. So i guess this could be the thread, unless Ryan or one of the mods say so :D

good luck to everybody

Good luck to everyone especially to the whomever has to pick the winner. I don't envy that task.

Sure, but what is a forum without affirmative action from its users? All with the best of intentions, and it's the "unofficial" one, so it should be OK. Very excited indeed, even though I am aware that Hawaii is now sleeping.

I looked through most of the videos at Youtube by ways of the tags, really nice to see what's going on elsewhere in the world. Some of you guys and girls have some great playing in there as well. Time to get away from the screen and practice a bit. cheers,

It is music from the SLIDE SHOW that yomogimogi submitted. You need to mute the sound from it.

Perhaps getting the thread up before the results are out was a bit too much :)
In whatever way the results may turn out, getting a closer look at some fellow members combined with the discovery that making videos is actually great fun, has already made this contest a success for me.
Sleep has been haunted lately by Hawaiian vamps, failing triple-strums, and images of stepping on my Fluke by accident for the last three days... Anyone getting nervous yet? :eek:

No matter who wins, I loved watching all of these as they were posted. I also loved making my video and love it even more that my family thinks I'm "too old" or that it's "too weird" for me to be doing. They don't know how this instrument and video clips are going to change the world -- yet. Good luck gang, it'll be exciting to pick on the winner of this one. (Kinda wish Hawaii was on the east coast right about now so "today" would be over sooner.)

Back from work and no announcement :(

But, I agree I had so much fun watching all the videos. There wasn't a single one that didn't at least make me smile.

And the picture entries were awesome, too! Nice shots.

LOL. No. Prom is rather important. I'd rank it above APs.

If I scan my prom pic then I'll make a thread for post your prom pics.
