Hey folks. Thanks for watching my videos! As a perk while I'm on my 85 day concert tour of Canada I've decided to have a contest. Watch the video then go to my youtube channel at www.youtube.com/manitobahal and find your favorite video that I've uploaded and record your own version. When I get I back I'll watch them all and choose my favorite. That person will win my aNueNue PAPAIICE concert ukulele. (www.anuenue-uke.com) Good luck and thanks for watching!
:cool:

Should this be posted in (or moved to) the "Ukulele Contests" forum?

Well folks you've got about 2 weeks left to get your entries in for this contest. Remember all you need to do is go to my YouTube site and perform one of the songs I've recorded. My friend Johnson from aNueNue ukes will help me decide who wins my PapaIICE concert ukulele. That's all there is to it so get crackin. :)

I'm going to have a go. Hal's got some great stuff on his channel, he needs many more subscribers :)

Here's my attempt(!)

Mmmm only one entry so far so I have a 50/50 chance... I like those odds

Way down in the hole Tom Waits (the wire theme sort of cover)

AlliBee has also entered as a video response to Hal's video with Tom Waits' Long Way Home:

(I think you have to add your video to Hal's to be considered.)

That's a great video Mr Yin! Good luck in the contest :)

Thanks for the heads up.
So the Bad news if I had not submitted would have been that my chances would have been 0%
and the Good news is that with AlliBee's entry the odds are now 33% :-)

Great entries so far folks. You've got 1 more week to submit a video. I arrive home on the 24th of August and will complete the judging within a week and post the winning announcement on YouTube and in this thread. It tickles me to hear my songs sung/played by others. Thank you all for that gift! :cool:

Hey folks. I've been stalling on announcing the finalist in this contest partly because of a death in the family but also to give you peeps a bit more time to enter. So here it is, the final deadline is Monday Sept 6, 2010. I will announce the winner on Tuesday Sept 7, 2010. I apologize for the delay and want to thank each and every entry. You can check them all out here; http://www.youtube.com/video_response_view_all?v=RLVSxHT8xUg.

I really don't like anything more than cutting it to the wire, and too late, as the case may be. This humble contribution (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JliD8gfhJbg) may be the product of unhealthy sleep-deprivation and perhaps even slight madness, but it was done for noble reasons! ....let me get back to you on what those are... *shifty eyes*
(Heh. Really? I was just inspired by all of you!)

Well after much stalling here it is. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your entries. The contest video was viewed over 1030 times and all the entries were seen 1822 times which means almost 3000 people were involved in this contest. WOW! That is awesome. I can't begin to tell you how it feels to hear you all perform my songs (even the one's I didn't write) and I thank you for that. I hope you all feel like winners because to me you are all ROCK STARS!! Ok enough stalling...the winning video is;

I'll be contacting you directly for arrange for the uke to find it's way to you. The folks at aNueNue have been watching this contest too and I'll pass on your video to them as well.

Wow, awesome! Congratulations, MultiFlyFisher! You are grand and should be totally proud of yourself! I myself dug all the entries - I can see how it was a hard contest to judge! Thanks to Hal for holding it, I definitely am glad I took a part, even if it was at the last minute. :)

Hi folks

My media coach and speech writer are on sabbatical so I’ll have to wing it. J

Thanks so much to Manitoba Hal and ANueNue for a great contest and such a generous prize.

Hal is an inspiration not only to the inner uker in many of us but to the inner musician as well.

It was fun watching everybody’s entries,

allie bee ….. The tom waits lyrics really suite your voice. you did such a pretty version

sjeeter61 … great finger work. you even look like a blues man and that’s a compliment

dktoller and yetihairball … I have been watching both your vids and using them to learn those two songs. great job


mr platypus70.… if any body wants to know what soul is I’ll send them to
your channel. keep up the good work.

weegingayin….. . such a great vid. both visually and aurally. really tight

sheepstar15.…. every body at our house figures you could put your version. of ``ten bucks to light on the radio tomorrow. we loved it

Shoepixie… sleep deprivation and maybe slight madness or not,( I`ve been there on both counts J), Putting your vid in b&w gave a surreal feeling to it. I watched your vid a few times and then realized if I closed my eyes for a minute it could be the 1940’s, your voice floating through the darkness and the spicy Moroccan air to my corner of the casbah….

so before they pull me off stage with a hook...

thanks every body for the kind words and encouragment.

and thanks again manitoba hal and aNueNue for a great contest and a great uke.

I am all excited and I cant wait to play it...:-)


peace

eor aka multiflyfisher
