Hey everyone, I've been lurking on here for a while now. I've only put one post up, to introduce myself, I'm such a bad person, I know! :D I know a few people here I've met on YT. Anyway, I put a video on YouTube yesterday. A R.E.M cover (kind of, not really thing) of Man On The Moon, basically the same-ish tune/chords with my own random lyrics and challenged everyone to come up with their own :-D I love randomness and fun :-) I've had some video responses already, all very funny, seems I've started something, whoops lol. Anyway guys, to spread the smiles and fun on YouTube, do your own versions and put them up, pretty please? :-) This isn't a contest or a competition, do it for a larf! :D

My version (you might want to skip watching that and watch the responses instead, though lol) ....

Loved this song and all the responses. Since I'm not yet any good at figuring out chords I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction. Would love to do a version.

P.S Just the name of the chords would do, I can work out the fingering.

I don't know if it's right, but you could try this.

I've put a link to this in the Ongoing Challenges and Campaigns thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?16911-Links-to-Ongoing-Challenges-and-Campaigns).

Just moving this thread to uke talk since it isn't a contest, per say. There is a redirect for 30 days so it will stay in here until then.

Carry on as usual. :)

OK here is mine :)

It's not really random, but inspired by what's been happening in the snow this week (not much). This is what happens when you get house-bound...

(YouTube has gone a bit funny as I post this...)
And great idea for a challenge, Ruth :D
