Good stuff, I recently ordered one of these as my first uke. It should be here in the morning.

You asked about improving reviews, so I'll list my thoughts:

Take notes. Know what you're going to say (and play) before you start.

Practice. Try to get rid of the "ums" and "uhs" as best you can. Also, make sure you speak clearly.

Do multiple takes. If one run through wasn't so great, do another (heck, do another even if the first was great). Of the many takes, choose the best (or put together a good version by editing together the best parts of the not-so-good versions).

And finally (and this bit is optional), good lighting will improve the look of your reviews a lot. The first three tips are most important (I think), but good lighting improves everything. You don't have to buy lights, try shooting a video by a window during the day and see what happens.

I hope that's helpful. Keep it up.

I can understand. It seems like this was a spur of the moment thing (not to mention your first time), so some things won't be perfect.

The fact that you put yourself out there for critique deserves respect (the internet can be a big, scary place) and implies, to me, that you're willing to improve.

Photography's great, I studied it for awhile too. One of the best things I learned was how to receive (and hopefully give) good, constructive criticism. There's a ton to learn in any art form. Bad critiques can really ruin someone's day (not to mention their desire to learn more).
