Second vid! :-) I'm just going to cut and paste my description here:

I chose to cover this song because I thought the rhythm of the instrumental with the rhythm of the vocals was challenging to play together. This is my first time editing sound and video. The footage and photos were taken with my cell phone. Originally, it was suppose to be all video until I got home and realized most of the footage was crap. lol

Gear:
Pono PKS1 Ukulele with D'Addario Concert Strings
Audio Technica AT2020 USB mic
Audacity 1.2
Windows Movie Maker 2.6
Samsung Alias 2 cell phone lolz

Chords: G C D Em

BTW, I could use some tips on getting how to get my audio tracks to sound better. All I really did was add a bit a reverb, and I don't know if I even used enough. I don't want it to totally sound like a karaoke machine. :)

Thanks, Rzr! :D

Oh and I forgot to mention. I did change the melody of the chorus because at the time (about a year ago) I didn't know how to transpose songs. I can't sing as high as Fergie. :-)
