Al Wood’s great collection of Ukulele eBooks:

How to Play Ukulele Chord Progressions
How to Play Ragtime Ukulele
How to Play Christmas Ukulele

The contest consists of creating your own video lesson and posting them on youtube. The full rules for this contest are posted on Julie's website so check it out!

Normally. UU would not allow other websites to advertise unsolicited on our boards but I thought this was an amazing opportunity that we could not hold back from our members. Thank you Julie for following the rules and asking us first.:)

Now go get em UU horde! Win all 3 of those ukes and bring them back to the underground!!! hahaha.

Also if you do enter, post your entry here so we can all see it. It'll help us with the video of the week features too :P

I hope some people make lessons for some popular local songs from bands like Three Plus, Ekolu, Malino, etc. Of course, maybe they're actually just really easy to play, and it's just me who cant figure them out. XD Actually, since I suck, most of the songs I can play are from Aldrine's video lessons. Strumming pattern walkthroughs are the best.

Anyhow, good luck to all who enter. I can't wait to see what new tutorials pop up!

haha you should submit some lessons anyway :D

Aldrine, what kind of video editing software do they use on your lessons? I want to submit something, but I want to do all that cool stuff like putting up chords and transitions and text.

hahaha thanks. i thought about waiting toward the end to submit, but i thought about the possibility of someone else posting up something similar, so i made my mark quick hahaha.

im starting to warm up to the camera more and more. but im still nervous about finally pushing the "submit" button to seal the deal on youtube haha.

come on guys, there is only ONE other entry there right now. and i dont know if he's one of the UU fam.

san diego people. if you have an idea and are willing to come to wherever im at, i wouldnt mind helping you put together something for this contest.
all you need is an idea
your person (im not going to be on cam)
and one MILLION dollars for my video editing services

haha okay the last one was a joke. lemme know guys. lets bring all three of those trophies home!

Well, here is Part 1 of mine:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPO6ivwykqc
Here is Part 2
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=W_b6pGGW75Y

The lesson is over 30 minutes long so I had to break it up into 4 Parts. I still have some rendering to do on the other Parts that I will get to ASAP.

Part 3 is the Solo and it takes less than a minute to play but took me over 9 minutes to present it :eek:.

Well, of course I would like to win but above all I hope this helps everyone wanting to learn this song. You can learn the basics of the progression from this version and then add some of the tricks from Aldrine's version and have your own killer version :D. Now you all get practicing while I get some more editing done.

BTW, sorry about the noisy camera. I have an old analog Sharp Viewcam and the mic picks up the noise from the motor. I wish I could find an ukulele contest that gave away a new digital video cam:).
