Sorry for the low volume uke playing. I think I was self conscious about my playing so I was so soft you can't hear the mistakes very well, my big mouth is too loud. I wanted to demonstrate the travis picking pattern I've been working on. I know ya'll don't care about the mistakes so I figured "just post it". be as critical as you like I can take it. If I waited to post until my playing is where I want it to be. I'd never post anything. Blah, Blah, Blah...here it is:

Self conscious? Man, that's great! You move back and forth between the picking and the strum really well, the picking is nice and even, and your voice is wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed it, keep em coming....

I thoroughly enjoyed it, keep em coming....Hey thanks 23skidoo for the encouragement. I need to get into a routine of rehearsing in front of the cam. That's what this was. It made me realize I need to buck up and play loud and proud and heck with the mistakes. Your playing is so clear and strong, that's my goal. Thanks,
Don

I'm certainly not in a position to be critical, but I'd just say don't apologize. Very well done, both playing and singing.

I agree with all that's been said. Well played and well sung. I didn't notice mistakes. I can strum and I'm working on picking, but I have a hard time moving from one to the other. Again, well done.

I'll redo this and play a little louder, the mistakes will ring out:) Switching from the picking pattern to strumming has taken a little work, the key is having the picking pattern down. every song I learn at some point, I try to pick the whole thing. I like to call the picking pattern a "chord checker" if I'm not holding the chord just right I can tell when picking each string, better than when I'm just strumming. Thanks for listening and your kind comments,
Don
