We launched a very watered down version of the site tonight. I know it looks pretty crappy but it's a work in progress. We wanted to get the first lesson up for you guys cause we know you've all been waiting for months. We'll continue to tweak and roll out more things as time goes on so bear with us for now.

So please check out the new ukulele lesson - 'Love Song' by The Cure and thanks for jumping on the UU train at the beginning.

Congrats on getting the site launched. The lesson was very well done.
Kudos to the UU staff.

BTW, maybe I just can't find it but I don't see a link back to the HOME page from the forum. I had to just delete part of the URL to get to the lesson.

it doesn't look crappy, i think it does its job. a website should be easy to navigate and easy on the eyes without all the clutter, and i think the main site shows that. also in relation to what dom said, maybe we could have the ukulele underground logo on the top of the forums link back to the main site as opposed to the index of the forums, since people could just click "Ukulele Underground Forums" right under it where it breaks down into each section and thread.

I was going to say that too.

Hey guys, E-Lo here.. I'm digging the new site. Congrats! However, I'm trying to watch and enjoy Aldrine's video lesson "Love Song", but the video is very choppy on my computer. Like it's only recieving very 4th frame or something from the video. I doesn't help either if I pause the video to wait for it to advance load. Still choppy. I have only found this problem to exist on one other site and that was the iamhawaii website. Any other video's I watch online from different sites load and play great. No problem watching youtube vids, etc. I'm running Windows XP home edition thru Explorer 11 browse, using a highspeed broadband connection, so I should be good to go. Any help fixing this problem would be appreciated. Again, congrats on the initial launch!! Thanks, E-lo...

Hmmm Hey E-Lo thanks for the heads up. We'll see what we can do. Can you try and watch some videos at viddler.com and see if they're all choppy of if its just ours. Thanks.

Rayan, yes it's across the board for me on viddler.com.. all videos are choppy, not just Aldrine, hahaha. So I guess I need to address this issue with them and hopefully solve this problem.

Again, congrats on the launch. One addition comment, The blue text against the brown background is a bit tough to pick out. Possibly changed it to white or inlarge fonts. Thanks, e....

Brilliant! I love the first lesson. I will be spending the rest of my Sunday learning that song by the Cure. Great work Aldrine and UU staff. A 9.9 out or 10. Like mentioned before by another member (e-lo I think?), any way to make the video less choppy? If not...no worries....just trying to get you guys "polish" the Ferrari... Again, great work and I look forward to what you guys have planned.

Hey E-Lo - Thanks for letting us know about that color issue, too. We found that some people using some of the older versions of Internet Explorer were having the same problem. I think if you update to the newest version of IE (or download Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/)) it should look a LOT better. Yeah, that blue on brown is pretty bad - we still don't know why it's happening, but we're working on it. In the meantime, firefox would probably be the quickest fix on your end. Thanks again for all the comments and help!

Whoa E-Lo I didn't know what you were talking about with the Blue links on Brown but I just checked it on on Internet Explorer. Wow that is broken and a major problem.

I'm usually on a mac and when I'm on a PC I use Firefox. I'll work on fixing this tonight. Thanks man I wouldn't have found that huge problem without you.

*edit* ok this should be fixed now on IE. If anyone else is experiencing these huge problems please let us know. Thanks!

Looks great guys. Rayan, it may be worth getting the IE tab extension for firefox.
