Thanks, Ronin. It's a great song. Check out Matt Dalhberg's (thejumpingflea) and Mark Occhionero's versions. I can't touch these guys instrumentally, so I thought I'd take a crack with some vocals, even though that's not exactly my strong suit, either :).

My very first contest entry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dShx8kUHsXM). No seriously - ever.

It is a cover of Molly Lewis' My Hope. I credit her with being the reason that I picked up a uke in the first place (a wee six months ago).

My boyfriend gets credit for his unending encouragement and for single-handedly nullifying the "I can't possibly do /that/ feeling"

Thanks everyone here for being an an amazing, enlightening, creative, and supportive community!

Thanks so much! I love love love my flea! My favorite feature is the non-slip stripping on the back. It makes it really easy to hold. I also really like the molded fretboard, which seems to minimize buzzing.

Good luck to you as well!

Thanks man, I liked the Americana CD a lot, awesome band :D. Btw, I checked out your ukulele project and the tracks sounded great!! If I move with my gf to Jakarta instead of Bali then I'll be sure to make the trip to watch you guys play sometime. It seems that you play the same type of music as I do, I mostly write Indie/Folk stuff. Anyway, I'm really picky with music so I don't usually find many artists to listen to and I've gotta say the music you're writing is really good stuff! Keep up the great work!

So If you can enter from outside North America? Also, does it have to be a well known song?

Also, can you change the chord arrangements of the songs? Mess about with them a wee bit?

so if you can enter from outside north america? Yes you can, but shipping needs to be paid by you if you win
also, does it have to be a well known song? no, as long as it is a pre-recorded song

Hello. Here's my entry into this fine contest. :)

This is a cover of the song "Moondust" from the movie Meatballs. It's a gentle, lovely song. I arranged it for ukuleles with guitar backing. Much of the video footage is from a vacation I took with friends during the UU California tour. This song is a tribute to them.

Here's another song and parody of this song to yet come.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uL4wt2vQZTY

Ah, well, camera problems so I can't post the parody but here are the words in case you'd like to sing it to your kids. I love making parodies!

"There's a Tear in My Rootbeer"

There's a tear in my rootbeer, cuz I'm cryin' for my deer, She's my one and only friend

Into these two rootbeers, I have shed a million tears, She's my one and only friend

I'm gonna' keep on sittin' here, until I'm satisfied, that maybe she'll come back, before I lose my mind

There's a tear in my rootbeer, cuz I'm cryin' for my deer, She's my one and only friend

Last night I locked the door, and the night before, Dad say's "No deer on the bed!", I just go "boo hoo" cuz I'm so doggone blue, She's my one and only friend

I'm gonna' keep on screamin' until my ol' Dad caves in, that little bitty deer on my bed sure makes me grin!

There's a tear in my rootbeer, cuz I'm cryin' for my deer, She's my one and only friend

Ok, it is the last day of the contest and here is my video entry!

For a contest titled "The Montreal Uke Grand Prix" that has part of it's voting criteria based on 'Song choice', it seemed most logical to record a song that is actually from Montreal. 'I'm Just a Kid' was Simple Plan's debut song from their debut album...written and recorded right in Montreal!

2. You must post the video no later then March 5, 2011 at midnight

not to be picky...but that was what it said on the first page...no mention of montreal time, sorry, it just didn't occur to me. my bad! no cryin' here! cheers!
