The winners have been posted!

It’s a numbers game.

This Weeks Theme
Uke By Numbers 1, 2, 3…

Since it’s week 29 and I am 29moons I decided that this week’s theme should be all about numbers. Just make sure that your song has something to do with numbers. It could be a song about numbers, a song with a number in it or by a band or a person with a number in the name. It’s pretty simple.

PARAMETERS
It must be a new video!!
The Ukulele must be the main instrument
Mention somewhere in the video that it’s Week 29
Post your videos in this thread
Your first video post is you official entry
BONUS SONGS are welcome
Duplicates are also welcome*


*We have all worked hard on a song all week only to have someone post the same song (either official or as a bonus) and felt discouraged. Please don't feel that way. Please post it anyway. I love seeing different versions of the same song.

JUDGING CRITERIA
I just want everyone to have fun, including me. I will judge on what makes me go wow!

Remember, this is a ukulele contest, not a singing contest. Have fun and sing like no one is listening.

Points will be awarded for your awesomeness. What does that even mean? I don’t know, I’m just gonna go with my gut.

So, points are moot! Or is that moot points? I don’t know that either.

** BONUS ACTIVITY **
The first person that can private message me with the correct meaning of my username will be awarded a small bonus gift. I will share the answer at the end of the week and announce the winner of the bonus then . (only one bonus gift will be awarded)
Any answers posted on the thread I will ask the poster to remove.

After a suggestion from wee_ginga_yin and discussing with Ukuloonie it has been decided that BONUS songs with a moon theme would be fun to do. In celebration of the Blue Moon and the life of Neil Armstrong who passed away recently.

JUDGING
I will pick my 3 favorites from the weeks entries based on their awesomeness.


PRIZES
To be announced – in other words, I am still looking.


This contest is not sponsored by UU.

DEADLINE:
12:17 PM HAWAII TIME, SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 9th

'a song with a number in it'

yep Looks like it sillydave.

It didn't mention one take so I thought maybe people may do a multitracking video?

Yep! Sillydave, that totally qualifies.

Such an awesome first entry. Seriously, it so fits the entire theme. A top 10 with each song corresponding to it's number on the list. I find it fitting that the the person who started the seasons started my week. Thanks so much, I appreciate it and love what you did with my idea.

Perhaps you should do "Seven Bridges Road" by the Eagles?

Over on the dark side (Ukulele Cosmos) when Neil Armstrong died they thought to do
"moon" songs as a remembrance for the monthly invitational... there is a whole bunch
of good moon songs, and at the moment there is a full moon in the sky.
I think a moon season at some time would be a great idea.

Another recent moon connection is the so-called "blue moon" this past Friday, August 31, at least according to some definitions. And "Blue Moon" has got to be one of the best moon songs ever. Here's the wiki for "blue moon" celestial event:

Let's not overthink it here. A number is a number. Roman Numerals are OK. Although I don't think algebraic variables like X or Y will count unless used in a roman numeral.

Just confirming that first, second and third count as numbers, even though they don't have the number in them as do ordinals like Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown. (These little things matter to us copyeditors. :))

Could some UU centurion actually sing in Roman numerals, like the Beatles' tune "VIII diebus in hebdomada"?

no doubt about this being a number song. Raffi's "Number's Rhumba". introducing my grandaughter Frankie as the newest Seasonista. Looking for an inexpensive Sopranino for her if anyone has one used. They were going back to Charleston so we had no practice time. Here it is in all it's rawness. I probably should have at least combed my hair, but I struck while the iron was hot.

I think this was the first song I learned on uke that had more than three chords, my dad taught it to me. And then he taught me "Ja-Da", and said the progression was almost the same, I guess my first music "theory" lesson.

Sounds like you're getting some sort of vibrato effect there, very cool.

Thanks, Ginny. Nat King Cole is one of my musical heroes, I know I'll never come close, but nice to think I could emulate him a bit.

The "California Special" has been neglected lately, but Glen Rose (from whom I learned the basics of this tune) feels that low-G is better suited for these kinds of 9th and 13th chords. Opinions vary. :)

As I replied to Ginny, I learned the basics of this tune from Glen Rose's YouTube tutorial. Mostly C13, F9, Cm7, and G9/G13.


And there was I thinking Route 66 was a Chuck Berry number :-)


or even the Rolling Stones :confused:

And John Mayer did a version for Disney's "Cars" movie, I think his arrangement follows Chuck Berry's.

I think this song resonates with me at least partly because my family moved from Iowa to California in 1961, and we traveled Route 66 pretty much the whole way. I think those highway signs were burned into my subconscious. :)

Hi All, here's a song about the biggest number of all, it's kind of a Carlos Castaneda meets Marty Robbins campfire number by the Meat Puppets called Oh, Me (http://youtu.be/n4cK0Bsl1wA).
The song is awfully short without the rambly solos..

29moons, you live in the SW and I think I've seen you in a Grateful Dead T shirt - you have to be a Meat Puppets fan, right?


http://youtu.be/9-KaRE1LUXo

now to review the entries..

... amazing stuff. It's nice to have such an open-ended challenge this week, everyone gets to go to their own zone again.

Chrimess: top 10. I love a medley, great picks too, and points for quick turn-around.

SillyDave: Great tune, must learn that one you are always a joy to watch

WGY: Space Oddity: that’s some spacey blues!
5’2”: that must be the metric barrelhouse version..very soulful.

Strum Silly, a deftly played cute card. Welcome to Frankie.

DougF Route 66: be careful out there man! Always wear an orange safety vest when uking in the right-of-way..Rte 66 jazzified DougF style. So smooth

Tootler: Lord Willoughby’s welcome home: I fear your stout behaviour! Bringing us more ancient tunes, thanks

Erivel: 4+20: great folky guitar riffs (slides) translated to uke, and singing all the while. I am jealous

hey gang, here's a kiddies counting song that somehow became a love story. the clip features a tea cosy, a ukulele, a randy sailor, 29 children, a dog named Isabelle and a semi-thawed chicken carcass :) thanks for another great week moons!

wonderful playing as usual. And that's one lucky dog. I should have thought of that, I'd of had all the bases covered, cute song, cute kid and cute dog! cute cubed. maybe next season. haha, btw you don't need props, only we hacks need them :} but it never hurts.

Hi Ganga K, that was rockin'!
here's the cure for your frustration: above the reply (or edit) window there is a menu bar, there is font and formatting stuff on the left, and on the right are some other tools: insert link, email, insert image, and the next one, that looks like a two-frame strip of film: Insert Video that will open a window into which you can paste the URL of your vid, and it will display in your message.
hope that helps

For my first entry in the Seasons, I offer this psychedelic flashback to the heady Summer of 1969.

This song was Number One in the charts for six weeks in July and August, from the time of the first moon landing to Woodstock.
Zager and Evans, the original artists, were from Lincoln, Nebraska, where I live.

I record directly into iMovie, which does that conversion for you. Conversely, if you record in PhotoBooth, you an the flip the image using the clip editor in iMovie - but then you can't use any of the other cool filters there like b/w or sepia or whatever.

Bonus poem in honor of our dear host....


There once was a fella called Moons
They say that he used to play spoons
But he discovered what art
Could be made with a fart:
A veritable orchestral typhoon.

So he gave up playing utensils
And painting and drawing on stencils
Now when the crowd starts to hum
He just flashes his bum
And its uncovered sonic potential.


shucks...sorry brother...did I just do that...he he....(*ducking tomatoes now*) I'll see if I can come up with one for the real meaning of your name... :o

You can actually still follow Route 66 over much of the original route. Some of it has become interstate, some of it the new interstates parallel the old 66 and you can actually see the abandoned pavement, but in a lot of places Route 66 is still very much alive if not quite the heyday it once was. There's been a revival in the last couple of decades of a lot of the old landmarks along the route, restoration of drive in restaraunts and mom & pop motels and what have you.

I've always prefered driving to flying when I have time and I love to get off the interstates sometimes and just discover what is out there. That's why I rarely make firm plans when I'm on vacation - I've been known to spot a neat little county park in the mountains and spend a week camped out there and never make it to my original destination... :)

no doubt about this being a number song. Raffi's "Number's Rhumba". introducing my grandaughter Frankie as the newest Seasonista. Looking for an inexpensive Sopranino for her if anyone has one used. They were going back to Charleston so we had no practice time. Here it is in all it's rawness. I probably should have at least combed my hair, but I struck while the iron was hot.

Just getting caught up, some great entries, and some first timers, I think too! Welcome.


Eugene : This Old Man – so full of goodness, and raw meat and randy sailors. Beautiful.
Bonus Poem – Naughty Naughty

Ganga K: Blue Suede Shoes, rockin!

Davewave: Love that 60’s psychedelic stuff. Nicely done. Welcome

Redpaul1: nice hat, Kill your Television!

Glass: Wagon Wheel – it’s only half a season without your epicness. All American Road Rock!

UkeyDave: Scientist: nice rhythm section, still wanna see your mug though.

TCK: Red Balloons – anything sounds good after a week of Taylor Swift, I know..soulful top 40 from Cloverdale, with props.

SillyDave: 80 Hillbillies. What a masterpiece, and you navigated that wordy (numbery) song with your usual aplomb. It would be a good Halloween song…

Ganga K: Amore: Such a cheery version! I’m partial to the Australian alternate lyrics “When a glass hits your eye in a pub in Bondi…” the rest is kind of ethnically insensitive.

Strumsilly : Dancing in the Moonlight: nice and relaxed, you’re sounding great!

Uke4ia: Cheshire Cat Moon: Only a bonus, prerecorded, but what a great song. You’re like the J Mascis of the Uke here.

Ganga K: Age of Aquarius: Moon and a number in the first line! Well done. And hey, that’s some real singing.

Myrna: Love Potion #9: Woo hooo Gypsy Myrna. Love this song, and your usual charming rendition.

Where oh where is our resident Math Teacher Ralf?

When I recorded an album in 2001, I met him through a mutual friend and he ended up playing lead guitar, mandolin and doing some harmony vocals for me on the record. Lovely guy. Incredible player.

Ginny, nicely done! And as long as we're talking numbers..... this is the song I'd decided to record - seriously! What are the odds that two people from our little group of Seasonistas would decide to do the same Ray Price song from 1959 - a song most of the others have probably never heard?

Having trouble keeping up this week. I was shattered after the weekend. (too many late nights - can't keep up the pace these days :( ) Then I had to go across the country yesterday for an aunt's funeral. Sometime, I might catch up with all the entries. There's some pretty good ones so far among those I have listened to.

In the meantime here's a bonus moon song. A Rodgers & Hart classic. I'm surprised no one has come up with it yet.

That is a very sweet rendition of a moony tune, Jon. When you say you "worked up an instrumental treatment" for it, it might as well be rocket science or macroeconomics to me. That's another talent you have.


PS--If it's cold, should you be out without a hat? :)

Fine work, Geoff! You own the old English story tunes, but you do this kind of song nicely, too.

Ok I have been very busy but I had some time last night to watch some videos and do some comments.

Love all of the entries and it looks like you guys are having fun with the theme.

Chrimess: Points for first out of the gate with a very creative interpretation. I like that each song corresponded with the number on the list. Also, liked the subdued version of 4 non-blondes because the kids were sleeping. I’m surprised that “One” by U2 went in the first entry but you did it so well. Great job.

Thesillydave: I love the hat. I was brought back to another time because it reminds me of a t.v. show or a movie but I can’t put my finger on it. You really captured the period and made it authentic. I enjoyed it a lot.

WGY: I posted that I have been so busy lately with school, work, family, etc. that I haven’t been able to pay as much attention to this weeks entries as I would like to. But, the real reason I haven’t been on the board is because I am just coming down from the acid trip that your version of Space Oddity put me in. I loved it! I long to be able to use effects as well as you do. Nicely done.

Strumsilly: I love the Rhumba and your Granddaughter, she’s so cute. Playing the cute card and being brave enough to appear without a hair combing. You did a great job and I really enjoyed both of your performamces.

WGY: I love me some blues! Way to go. The spin that you make on your songs is just out there and I love it. Great fell and singing.

Dougf: You have found one of my loves. I am a true fan of the mother road so this song hits home. I live very near the road and actually drive an old piece of it on my way to hockey. You version is both smooth and jazzy. You really took it and made it your own.

Tootler: You make me feel like I’m at the Ren Faire in full regalia. Your entries make me feel like I’m travelling in time. Not back to my childhood but hundreds of years to another time entirely. I look forward to your entries each week and this one delivered. Lord Willoghby on the uke is completely unexpected but you pull it off with your greatstyle and playing.

Erivel: You have found a fellow CSN+Y fan. You pull this off so well. I wish that I could make a uke sing like you do here. Your finger picking and strumming together really put
this over the top. Awesome job.

Peewee: I love the Dead and I do live in NM but I have not been a fan of the Meat Puppets. Never had the exposure except in the early 80’s when I really had little taste in music. That being said, it reminds me of the Dead, with maybe a little bit of Neil Young. I really liked this and want to hear more. Your soft touch and picking was great, it really made it relaxed and made the song.

Myrnaukulele: WOOHOO! That’s just fun. I love that song and you gals did it great. I wish you could play the Corrales Harvest Festival.

Eugene Ukulele: I don’t think any one else has the feel for the uke that you do, you make it look effortless. The fact that you took liberties and threw the number of the week in there is totally cool. You literally made it your own. Getting Izzy involved is the animal kingdom equivalent of pulling the cute card with the kids. Pretty sneaky sis, but you didn’t need it. Great job. Oh! I appreciate the poem too. I wrote one for you but don’t have time to post it here. But, it had something to do with a ukulele, a beanie and a Tasmanian bush.

000Kanaka000: You go mama! That rocks. What a great feeling and groove. I couldn’t help but tap my foot and smile. You had fun so I had fun. Elvis is in the building.

~dave~~wave~: Just when I came back down from WGY’s trip you pull me back like a flashback. Great feeling and strumming, you tagged it. I like the sound of your uke. Great job. Welcome to the seasons, I think you will fit right in and I look forward to seeing more entries.

Redpaul1: I like your style with the moody country singer look. The drone of your strum makes the song and drives it home. Always good to work the number of the week into the song. The lighting is moody and so is the song. Don’t think I didn’t notice the Telecaster sitting over there.

Glass: Always good to see you here. Come and rock me! This song really fits you and you play it well. Your energy comes through and you make it your own. I like the eighties feel that you bring here. I found myself singing it even after I finished watching. Great job Glass.

UkeyDave: I’m not a big Coldplay fan but I like this one and you made it yours. That’s not easy to do. I enjoyed listening and watching your playing. Very moody atmosphere you created but at the same time it’s upbeat, it suits you. Thanks, I really enjoyed it.

TCK: Playing to my love of New Wave are you. I loved this song in High school and still do when it hits me. I like your tempo build up in the middle. You guys take this one and put your own spin on it. plus I like the balloons. Thanks for bringing me back to 1983. I like the cameow appearance at the end.

I have some prizes on the way but I am not sure how many are being sent. But, it looks like at least 1st prize is going to be a T-shirt provided by Luna Guitars. It's a pretty sweet design. I play a Luna ukulele and since the bonus vids this week are moons it seemed appropriate. I am hoping that I get at least 4 shirts for all the prizes but it wasn't clear how many they are sending.

I want to thank Yvonne at Luna Guitars for providing the shirt(s)

Aw man, looks like another week that I'm not participating. I had all good intentions of doing this song (http://boingboing.net/2009/07/21/official-video-for-8.html)* but time is just not going to allow it to happen - so somebody, please steal my idea!

Is there a YT playlist of this week's entries? If there is, I'm too brain-dead to find it, so many mahalos to whomever can point me in that direction. I'd like to get caught up on all of your entries :)

*It's not singing, it's talking. While I'd be straying from my instrumental-only policy, it would still not technically be singing and my reputation would remain unchanged!

This is "Texarkana" by R.E.M. I'm still getting over the bug my daughter brought home from camp -- right now it's a success just to get through a four minute song without having to stop and clear my throat. A virtual cookie to anyone who knows what '80s New Wave band did the bit I threw in at the beginning.

I've been working on "Eleventh Earl of Mar" by Genesis lately, but I don't think I'll have it done this week. I have one idea for a bonus song if time permits, and I have a couple old videos that fit the theme that I might throw in here.

So cool, Peewee, how you can play any rhythm and sing with such ease. I note that for this you used a "whitey" studio decor, compared to your dark background for your numbers song. You must have a stylist in your entourage.

Thanks! Actually it's not so simple, I found myself completely unable to do an Annette Funicello Talking-over-chords song for guilty pleasures and the worst is trying to sing Bossa Nova while not tripping up on the rhythm. Not to mention singing over any kind of repetitive riff... Still working on it. As for the backgrounds, it just depends on whether it's day or night..thanks again

here's another obscure Moon song that presents singing cadence challenges despite its simplicity:

Hope you all don't mind another mass comment message. Some great stuff this week and lots of new (to me anyway) voices.

Anyway, great stuff. Thanks 29moons.

I'm waiting for a few regulars, among them are Mattydee, who seems to believe in actually spending time rehearsing his number each week, and Ralf who must be preparing some trinomial word problem for the occasion...

comments:

GT311 : Heartaches by the Numbers: Your confidence level is increasing! Sounds really good. Don’t worry about the singing. I was watching a clip from Music Man (awful movie) and there’s a line that’s something like “singing is just sustained talking”, so keep that in mind. http://youtu.be/TbBITrZa6Ok

Tootler: Blue Moon: wow, Geoff goes modern! Nice to hear you crooning. Who knew?

Eugene: Paper Moon: What an arrangement, so cool and bluesy. You travel up the neck like you’re strolling through the petunias. but I have to admit I was mostly mesmerized by your hatlessness.

Nongdam: Just the Two of Us: Your usual smooth playing, and then a smooth rap, then the instrumental breakdown.. You are the dude.

Erivel: Harvest Moon: Dah-yumm. Good stuff. Even showboatin’ with the harmonics. Good to see you can pull it off just as well in a single take vid too.

Canoe Lady: Count on Me: That was a great tune and well done, but I was hypnotized by the panoramic background. Nice lake you have there. And welcome, this is your first entry, right?

Uke4ia: Texarkana: You may be the nly person who knows the lyrics to these REM songs! Your riffing among the chords captures the song perfectly

Garydavkra: Three Little Birds: Welcome! Can’t have too much Bob. You have a lovely sonorous voice, interesting to hear a folk-song style treatment of the song.. Thanks.. and I dig the charcoal drawing too.

SillyDave: Get Out Get Under the Moon: Silly like a fox, I say. Nice intro, great song that I didn’t know. Moon - June – Soon, hey where’s my spoon?

Nongdam: Longing to Belong: Nice song choice, I think I like it better without Eddie V’s vocal histrionics (Ducking)

MyrnaU: How High the Moon: What a great song, I like your cold voice, you sound like a congested Marilyn.

Davewave: Armstrong: Great tune, kind of a less angry cousin to Whitey on the Moon. Love your style, looking forward to more entries.

WGY: By the Light of the Silvery Moon: You are the Peppy le pew of Ukulele with those hearts all a flutter. Muy Romantico. Had me laughing 5614 miles away.

UkuleleDaveey: 25 minutes: So well done, relaxed, great pacing and all, it’s a song that requires a little acting, and you are up to the task! So great to see you coming along so much, and I don’t mean that in a patronizing way, I have no illusions as to my own skill level.

HAHAHA!!

It wouldn't be a Matty hit unless it sounded like he was performing in front of thousands!! I appreciate the fact that you are giving it your best!! I remember one time there was question about how many ways to play every chord on the uke or something bizarre and Ralf calculated it!!

I have entered a couple of the seasons, before summer got too busy. Eugene's week and the animals week, I believe. I hope to get in a few more now that summer is over <sniff>.
The lake was actually too windy yesterday for me to try to record this out there, so I went into the river that connects our lake with the next one over. That's one of my favorite places, especially where it narrows behind me. Coming through that section at night when there is a full moon is beyond compare.

@chrimess (Top 10) Great idea. It's a blast to go on a numerical musical journey with you. Some real surprises on your list, too.

@thesillydave (Button Up Your Overcoat) Aw. But I love meats, sweets, and bootleg hooch. Great old song---sweet version!

@wee_ginga_yin (Space Oddity) Track suit and fez---looking like a healthy Turk. Sounding healthy, too. Plenty of space-y echo. Singing those deep space blues. Nice. (5' 2") Sweet and sad version of a numerical, uke classic. Sounds like you really haven't seen your gal for a while, Rob, and you don't know if she's ever coming back. Sweet. Lovely.

@strumsilly (Numbers Rhumba) Great co-star! Fun for counters of all ages!! Cha cha cha!!!

@Dougf (Route 66) Great version! Sweet melodic movement in your accompaniment, here---and a great chord solo. Woohoo!!

@Tootler (Lord Willoughby's Welcome Home) Each week I get a better sense of English history and spirit from your song. Fun every time.

@erivel (4 + 20) I can do that in my head. 24. Very sweet uke playing here---nice, subtle leads worked into your picking---and great singing, too. Gracias.

@peewee (Oh, Me) Those desert blues licks sound sweet on your baritone uke. Groovy, mellow singing and playing, too. Gracias.

@myrnaukulele (Buffalo Gals) Woohoo!! Fun!!! Thanks for sharing this one.

@eugene ukulele (This Old Man) Fun. Love how you take breaks from singing to jam on the melody with the whistlin' or the uke. Inspirational. Gracias. Woof.

@000Kanak000 (Blue Suede Shoes) Glad you didn't resist your rock and roll urge! Great, infectious spirit here. Fun!

@~dave~~wave~ (In the Year 2525) A psychedelic six-string tremolo uke jam! Yep, that's what I like. Thanks!

@redpaul1 (57 Channels and Nothin On) Your uke playing makes this one sound punk. Cool.

@glass (Wagon Wheel) Your version sounds more southern rock than roots music. Cool.

@UkeyDave (The Scientist) Love that conga and shaker. And the glass. Sweet one.

@TCK (99 Red Balloons) Love that German new wave! I'm always surprised at how this one gets to me. Great melody. The Cloverdale crew does it justice, for sure. (I do wish there were 94 more red balloons in this shot, though.)

Nongdam: Just the Two of Us: Your usual smooth playing, and then a smooth rap, then the instrumental breakdown.. You are the dude.


Thanks...wish I had more time as I didn't memorize the instrumental well and quoting T.S. Eliot ended the song "Not with a bang but a whimper"

I was thinking of you as I was writing the words for the rap and used Adieu...whenever I use any French words know that I'm thinking of you! Whenever I use Spanish, I'll be thinking of Dougf! LOL

Based on the traditional fiddle tune "The Eighth of January", here is Jimmy Driftwood's "The Battle of New Orleans".

I'm not sure if we can post number songs as bonus songs, or just moon songs. This is a version of Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" I did last year as an in-joke for my co-workers. The lyrics are about that a Town water supply can get a "monitoring waiver" to not have to test for some chemicals as often, if those chemicals have never been detected in the water and there's no businesses using that chemical near the supply.

A very funny song, and snappily rendered, sir!

Brings to mind the oft-repeated quote, attributed to Mark Twain: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

How imaginative! You are quite the songwriter. Is this the business you work in?
I know you like '80s rock a lot, but you do very well with this song, which I think is closer to pop.

Yes, I work in the water supply field. I was a teenager in the '70s when "50 Ways" was a hit. It has some fun chord changes to play. I had to look a couple of the chords up.

That second mouth tuba solo would have Leon Rebone rolling on the floor kicking up his heels in a fit of jealousy.
Somebody has to propose a Bonzo season since the Dog's did so many crazy numbers "Urban spaceman"
"Let kill all the beautiful people" etc. It would also be an excuse for dressing up.

Been a hectic couple of days, but Alan/decaturcomp and I had a chance to get together last night for a little strummage. Here's our stab at Townes Van Zandt's gospel tune 'Two Hands'. Not being a religious person, I find myself drawn to gospel songs written by secular musicians - especially the 'school of hard knocks' guys like TVZ.... something very poignant about this tune written by someone who ended up drinking himself to death.

Well guys 'n Gals, hade a great day at the woodfest, wish our set had been longer, beautiful weather and copious amounts of real ale, i only had 2 pints (Honest). Anyway here is my feedback on the songs so far.

Chrimmes : Wow man you sure know how to rock the uke, hard and slow, you are a great player mate,I'm not much of a U2 fan, but you played and sung it so well, although i would of loved to of heard 666 number of the beast :) Surely it cant be to long till you get to wear the yellow jersey of the seasons comp.

The SillyDave - Button up your overcoat : lovely, lovely lovely, we play this at our club was in our set list today, but your vwersion is real sweet and smooth, a different arrangement to what I play, but i like this and need to learn it, you are giving Doug F a run for that jazz style, but you are the king of cool, well done mate.

Strumsilly : Fantastic mate and your grand daughter is soooo cute :) a lovely happy tune, i hadnt heard this before, it was great, really enjoyed it, you guys were great together, was fun to watch and really enjoyed it.

Wee-Ginga-Yin : WOWSERS!!!!! i love this song and now i love your wee-ginga stylee, it totally gives this song a whole new twist, beautiful,melancholic and haunting, you know you are so good as you have your own style of playing which a unique gift and one i wish i could acquire, mate you are rapidly gaining cult status, i did say cult honest he he he, anyway an absolute belter well done mate.

DougF - Route 66 : I knew we were in for a treat once i saw that shoulder just itching to start jumping, lovely setting and boy you are a cool cat doug, really enjoyed this, absolutlery swinging mate, always try to study your chord movements, but to no avail,would love to see a duo of you and The sillyDave, now that would be so cool and smooth ,anyway awesome job mate.

Tootler : Absolutely great to see you become a regular Geoff, you have become the seasons very own cecil sharpe (hope i have the name right) great little ditty there mate,really enjoyed it lovely playing and singing mate,another fine entry.

Erivel : Wow that uke sounds beautiful and you play it so well,love your technique was a joy to listen to and love your singing to a really sweet voice mate, absolutely fantastic, sort of lost for words what to write, im listening to the song again now, it is just pure bliss, thanks for sharing with us.

Peewee - Oh,Me :I love this so much, that Bari sounds so good and really nice vocals listening to this sort of reminds me of Nirvana unplugged (thats a compliment) really really love listening to this, such a great version mate, you are rapidly becoming one of the heavyweights of the seasons comp, keep up the excellent work mate.

EugeneUkulele : wow alot of top notch performances this week, always something from the top draw from you Jon, beautiful picking, you also are so lucky to have your own style,a lovely foot thumping little ditty, really love it, its getting so hard to find new words for awesomeness when it comes to your performances, well done mate,loved it.

Davewave : Hi and welcome to the seasons always great to see new faces, wow that was a trippy video, a good song choice, like your voice and lovely strumming, a nice job mate and look forward to seeing you in future weeks, your voice kind of reminds me of Roy Orbison, well done mate

RedPaul1 : Another new contestant, so welcome aboard the seasons, a dark and brooding video, i have never heard that song before, so always good to experience new songs, some nice sliding bar chords, well done mate.

Glass : Yeah another seasons Legend, and doing another of one of my fave songs and another uker who is blessed with there own style which is the golden ingredient, loved this mate, great playing mate and cool singing and really enjoy listening to this, well done mate.
