Contest:
Remix of _______ for an Eddy Finn from Mim
This should be fun/ hilarious, so PLEASE enter!!!

Eddy Finn is like the Ukulele Remixed… so we want you to Remix a song for an Eddy Finn!

Eddy Finn has taken the classic ukulele, switched up the sound hole, re-designed the headstock, scented the sound hole, and brought some rarely seen tone-woods to the table!

So your job is to: Make a country song rock, make a rap song a ballad, make a crooner into heavy metal… just do something different! Watch the video and you will see what I mean:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoB1ankG47E

Prizes:

1st Tenor Mango Eddy Finn Ukulele, Eddy Finn Tuner, Eddy Finn Shirt

2nd FULL NAMM Swag bag brought to you by Mim, Tim from Ukeeku.com, and Sally aka Salukulady, Eddy Finn Tuner, Eddy Finn Shrit

3rd ˝ Full NAMM Swag bag brought to you by Mim, Tim from Ukeeku.com, and Sally aka Salukulady, Eddy Finn Tuner, Eddy Finn Shirt

***6 Runners up will get an Eddy Finn Shirt and Tuner (6 runners up… seriously)

Rules:
How many times can you enter? UNLIMITED!!! Go Go Go! Don’t hold back!
And do not wait until the last few days! It will not help in this one and someone may take your idea! PLUS, if you think of an even better idea later you can submit that too!!!

You must play the uke… duh!

Must be for this contest... so please mention the contest in the video so we know it was not previously recorded!

We are looking for “One Take Wonders”… one take… period! You can do costumes, you can have multiple people, you can be somewhere weird, you can be doing all 3 at the same time, but it must be ONE TAKE!

Upload your submission to YouTube and Title Your Video:

“Remix of _______ for an Eddy Finn from Mim”
Say something to the same effect before you start your video (kissing up welcome)
Then make it a video response to the original video

Post your video in the thread!

International entries are welcome, but we will have to split the shipping!

Contest Ends: March 31, 2011 at midnight… Hawaiian time… sure… that sounds good! Basically by the time I wake up on April 1!

Winners announced April 6, 2011!
Optional: If you want to help us out a bit, it would be cool if you would put www.eddyfinnukes.com and www.mimsukes.com in your sidebar. I just would appreciate it! Also, if you want post your video on our face book pages, Eddy Finn Ukes (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Eddy-Finn-Ukes/124059174325344) or Mim’s Ukes (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Eddy-Finn-Ukes/124059174325344?v=wall#!/pages/Mims-Ukes/181125165238692) we would love you forever! I just think it would be a cool and easy way to show off the contest to my friends and family, plus it would just be plain cool! Any shout outs in the video too is cool, but not necessary. Ok, I am done begging for attention!!!

Judging Criteria:
We want to leave this open to all skill levels and all abilities. So, seriously, it is hard to say exactly! But I imagine we will know the video when we see it! We want to see effort, thought, cleverness, and just an all around awesome performance! I will assemble a judging panel of all different ukulele peeps and even a few non-ukulele peeps and we will vote! I think that is fair! If you have a better idea PM me! But I am not going to make it but so complicated!

Disclaimer: Anybody who grumps about the result will be branded a “poo poo head” and will cause sad feelings to occur in the heart of Mim! You don’t want to do that do you?

Anything I missed? Drop me a line and I will add it to the intro!

Well I guess THAT settles it. I will have to enter. Keep that Eddy Finn safe, humidified, & properly coco-butter odorized!

Nice job. You can add the text on the video with annotations. Also, I'd recommend putting links to the UU thread about the contest, Mims channel and Eddy Finn in the video description. Can't hurt your chances to win!

I laughed so hard I cried! Never in my life have I heard "Big Hand I Know You're the One" sang with such depth of feeling and passion.
I am a little concerned it is dedicated to me though... haha!

i have such a great idea for turning a really popular happy poppy song, into an emotion fueled power ballad but i am waiting for my eleuke to arrive form the states, i just can't do it on an acoustic uke! hope it gets here before the deadline.in the meantime i am working through all the songs i know and trying to twist them into something else!

great contest idea

Dang-it, beat me to it! Double-dang-it - did a far, far better job than I would have managed. Really, really good man! I wouldn't be surprised if that goes viral!

I guess I better get cracking on my other ideas - if I can't be best I need to at least be first! LOL

Thank you John. I am pretty new here and am having a great time. I started uke the end of last June and fell in love with it. I bought that sweet little uke from Mim. It plays like butter. But, a lot less messy than strumming a stick of Land 'O Lakes.

02-12-2011, 11:10 AM
Okay, I'm in. Thought about this song when reading the thread about the facebook group seeking to ban hipsters with ukes, or something. Couldn't figure out how I wanted to do it when today I hit on the idea of doing it as a slow ballad. It took longer to upload the video to YouTube than it did to write down the words, slap a chord progression together, and record it (I have got to get rid of DSL - download is fine but upload crawls).

This is a Tower of Power hit but I always think of it as a Gov't Mule song because that's the first version I heard and I'm a fan of Gov't Mule, not so much of ToP. :)

So, I should be doubly qualified for the contest with this video because Gov't Mule covered ToP's jazz/soul hit with a blues/rock version, and I'm covering that as a slow, introspective ballad.

I also did my best to suck-up shamelessly to Mim by putting her logo from her website on the title page of my video. :)

1. I apologize for the singing. Its a somewhat difficult song and I'm a sucky singer anyways.
2. The girly scream at the end is due to me dropping my ipod in the sink. Please ignore.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, Dig Up Her Bones by The Misfits, in... unidentified genre form.

Here's my entry: A remix of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.

I don't usually make one-take videos, because I think it's not my strongest side, but I wanted to try it. Also, so that Mim can complete the 100-entries-list she started :) Hope you guys enjoy it!

Sebi!!! You just about gave me a small heart attack! I saw the 2 screens and thought, "Oh No! Sebi multi-tracked!!! How am I to tell him this does not count?" Good thing my husband noticed and said... "No, it is one take...more than one camera!" You brilliant little devil you!!! Hahaha! Thanks for the entry!

Ok guys! I updated the list! Gonna catch up on viewing and commenting! 42 WOW!!!

And yes, Dave, I noticed you said you could not help entering more than once. I am at the point where I may post videos just because as I go down the road I hear a song and think "I gotta try this one myself!" So look for a Mim video sometime soon! I have 2 ideas I am working out!

Has anybody seen my cat?

Now if you run into a Russian Blue
All covered in matted fur
Catchin' mice and all those things

Thanks, John. I kind of felt the same way about the headstock, and apparently you can order one with a custom headstock, but in some ways, it wouldn't really seem like a Mya-Moe without it.

I don't think I'd be playing the uke if it wasn't for those quality made manufactured ukes. I couldn't afford uke if it wasn't for them! Not going to name names bad or good. We know who they are ( :

Fantastic! I was wondering how you were going to pull off the "where do we go now" part in that style but you did it! That's probably my favorite Axel Rose song and I stand in awe that you were able to do such a great job in such a totally different style.

This remix of This Old Man is set to Old Man by Neil Young. I was inspired by Mim’s contest to do a silly remix, thanks Mim!

I was working on Old Man by the legendary Neil Young when I came across the contest thread. Well, wouldn’t it be silly to put in the nursery rhyme song of This Old Man and Hee Diddle Diddle to the song? So I did using my new e-baritone ukulele.

Pretty amazing, Matt. So, like, are you a master of disguises, or what? LOL

Ha, I am a master of three disguises. Lounge singing guy, guy in overalls, and dude of indeterminable origins with a weak mustache!

This is my second entry!
It's a sort of ska/reggae version of "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode.
I hope you'll like it!

My third entry, a little finger picking with Girl from Ipanema. At least I can pretty much guarantee you won't hear THIS version in an elevator any time soon. :)

Hello. This is my 2nd and final entry for this awesome contest. I slowed down an old Beatles tune and made it more of a slow blues.

I awoke from a dream where Mim's contest was all over talk radio because someone from Bangkok had made a video that was blowing up the internet. I just had to come over here and see for myself. Clearly I am a man who has his priorities in order.

One of the things I love about the uke is that you can laugh out loud when someone's playing and no-one gets offended.

If Mafalda's Volare doesn't win something there is no justice in the world. Still smiling, loved it heaps.
