View Full Version : Your invitation to the Seasons of the Ukulele!

.

This is an invitation to UU members (and lurkers!)
who have never posted a uking video,
but think you maybe...possibly...might like to try it.



All UU members are invited to post a video in a Seasons challenge. After one video post, you become a Seasonista, and the sky will be bluer and your cereal will taste better from that day forward!
If you post videos in subsequent weeks, you gradually develop performance confidence and a bunch of uking buddies who care how you're developing.
The Seasons' founding father is chrimess, who came up with the idea and who posts videos regularly.

Here's generally how it works:
+ Seasons of the Ukulele is a subforum under UU Contests.
+ The Seasons weeks are friendly challenges, not competitions! It's a community of ukers who play and encourage each other. Each Season is hosted by a volunteer Seasonista.
+ Each Season runs from early Sunday to midnight the following Sunday—you have 8 days to prepare and record a video for that week's theme.
+ Each theme is chosen by the volunteer host (you have to be a Seasonista to host) and announced when the Season launches so everyone has the same time to prepare.
+ The host offers some kind of judging, but it's not always based on skills—it may be the feeling you project. Sometimes it's a drawing. Once it was knife-throwing.
+ There are prizes, but they're generally just for fun.

The best things about participating:
1) It builds your confidence. Kindly people—who have all been beginners!—comment encouragingly.
2) It gives you a goal to get good at a song each week.
3) You get to know some UU members better by watching them and interacting on the thread.
4) You can hear a wide variety of songs and styles, many of which may be new to you.

Questions? Ask in this thread, ask any Seasonista, or ask Ralf (Theonlyukethatmatters), who is the Seasons' marvelous Volunteer Coordinator. He keeps the hosting sign-up list and has posted all the playlists in one thread.



Please join us in the Seasons—just one entry makes you a Seasonista!
You don't have to be perfect—you're good enough right now!

Plus, if you're an established, even professional ukulele player, participating in the Seasons of the Uke contest will gain you tens, if not dozens of new listeners!

It's not the numbers of new listeners but the quality of those new listeners that the professionals should be glad to have on board.:)

Ginny is the person who got me to finally post a videos in the seasons. If it wasn't for people like Ginny, kind, encouraging, friendly, helpful(just to name a few) this site wouldn't be what it is. So don't be shy, jump on in.
There is no better time.

Hey moderators.....

We should take Ginny's first post in this thread and make it the basis for a locked sticky/announcement in the Seasons subforum with a title like "What exactly are the Seasons of the Ukulele?" Maybe a little editing to make it a general announcement with a little history of how Christian started the Seasons?

Just saw another thread where someone was asking what it's all about..... I can see the 'Seasosns' nomenclature being a little confusing to some folks, especially if English isn't their first language.....

And here's a little history from another thread.


What everybody above said, plus, a little history...

"Contests" have a long history here at UU, far predating my arrival. (Such a long history that they already had their own forum.)

A little over a year ago Christian (chrimess) and a couple of others came up with an idea for a six week contest divided into "seasons" - each being a week long. Each season had it's own theme and people were only eligible to win if they participated in at least five (I think it was, maybe it was four) of the seasons. Some of the rules of those first seasons was that videos had to be new for the contest and they had to be done in a contiguous take (no overdubbing, multi-tracking, and so on). For some reason, the idea really appealed to a lot of people and when the six weeks were over there was a lot of momentum to keep doing. So we did.

It's been 58 contiguous weeks now without a single week being omitted. I believe people have "signed up" to host future seasons at least through the middle of this year Drew (ukuloonie) stepped up some months back and started coordinating some of the schedules so we know who is coming up on hosting and so on. Sometimes prizes have had some "real" value - other times they've had little economical value but great sentimental value. Judging has varied from "chicken bingo" (if you have to ask you probably don't want to know), to host-chosen, to participant vote (sometimes public, sometimes private). I personally took first place oen season when Dave (TCK) threw a knife at a board with hidden names (this after his chickens failed to perform their duty as expected - BTW, Dave, I thought of something, if you'd put the names on a freshly washed car I bet the chickens would have crapped all over it). The "golden egg" (an egg shaker with a handle - probably actually a baby rattle) that I won is right on the desk in front of me and it will always bring fond memories.

It's really not about prizes, though they do provide a little incentive to participate. It's very fun, supportive, and just generally a blast. I think we're averaging over 50 videos a week now, counting non-scored "bonus tracks" anyway. (I keep saying "we," even though for the last several weeks my job has kept me from having time to participate - this is a Sunday evening and honestly I should be working instead of contributing to this thread...)

Anyway, as others have said, come on over and check it out. We've had a lot of people produce their first-ever public video for the Seasons and, as far as I'm aware, not one single person has been eaten for lunch. :)

I've also been acquainted with artists I've never heard of, have heard some excellent originals by UU members (including one song by someone I'm guessing is a pro entertainer albeit unknown on these shores that just knocked my socks completely off).

In short, this little project conceived by Christian has become perhaps one of the most significant internet (largely) amateur music projects to date. Am I exaggerating? Not really, I can't think of anything else that rivals it, in any case.

swing by the current thread

absorb and digest the theme

create super awesome video of amazing performance

post said video on said thread - there is a snazzy film icon when you post an advanced reply - if you cut and paste your youtube video's URL into the dialogue box that opens when you click on the film icon, your video will show in an embedded player

et voila you will be a seasonista

yeah baby

Well I have been seduced. Wendi, Jarvi, Booli (what's with all the i's) have convinced me to join the club. I have obtained a webcam it is operational. I am making some vids. They appear to be wmv format is that OK? I haven't a clue as to how upload them or what the other conventions are for the club. I would like to come on board asap but with xmas this week I don't have the time to search everything out. Can somebody assist me with these issues please?

My name has a 'y' ... no 'i's in my first name, but I think you meant me. Welcome, Tommy ... so happy you will be joining us!

WMV is fine - YouTube accepts pretty much any format of video.

Next thing to do, if you haven't yet, is to create a YouTube account ... that's where you'll upload your videos. Check the settings and make sure it's set so people can comment on your videos and so forth ... some new accounts have started out with weird defaults, and then we can't come by and tell you how much we love your entries!

Uploading a video to YouTube is super easy. Click the "Upload" button at upper right ... then you can just drag and drop your video file right onto the upload box, and YouTube handles the rest.

While it's uploading and processing (this takes some time ... how much depends on your internet speed and the weather and how YouTube is feeling today), you can edit the title and description you want to give your video, and any other settings you want to change. I always click on "Advanced Settings" and then click "Recording Date", which sets the date to today.

I generally wait until the video is fully uploaded and processed, and I have selected a thumbnail (more on that in a moment), before clicking "Publish". When you're ready, click "Publish", and voila! you have a video on YouTube.

It's generally recommended to set your videos to "Public" so everyone can see them, and others can find them on YouTube. If you feel you have reasons for it, some people do make their videos "Unlisted" ... I'm not a big fan of that, but it's an option you have. ("Private" will make it viewable only by you, so that setting won't work for a Seasons video.)

Re thumbnails: YouTube will select three random still shots from your video as possible thumbnails for your video, and will select one of them as your initial thumbnail. It takes a while for YT to process the thumbnails, so often you will have blank images in the thumbnail boxes (or no images / boxes at all) for a while until they appear. Once they appear, select the one you like best, wait until YouTube displays the one you picked in the thumbnail preview box at upper left (this can also take some time ... sometimes it's instantaneous, sometimes it takes ages, and occasionally doesn't work at all). Then click "Save" to save your changes. I find I get best results by waiting until my chosen thumbnail appears before clicking "Save" and or "Publish" ... YouTube is known to have occasional weird behavior around thumbnails.

So, now you have your video published on YouTube. The final step is to post it in the Seasons.

Go to the current Seasons thread on the forum (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/forumdisplay.php?47-Seasons-of-the-Ukulele). Click that link (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/forumdisplay.php?47-Seasons-of-the-Ukulele) (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/forumdisplay.php?47-Seasons-of-the-Ukulele) (I highly recommend bookmarking it ... you will use it a lot) and look for the highest-numbered thread ... it will most likely appear near the top of the listing. Go to that thread, click "Reply to Thread", say whatever you want to say to introduce yourself and your video.

To put your video in your post, click the icon that looks like a bit of filmstrip, and copy/paste the link from YouTube into the dialog box that appears. And voila! your video will show up in your forum post in its full glory, hopefully displaying the lovely thumbnail you chose. Submit your comment to the post, and ... welcome, you have entered your first Season ... and you are now a Seasonista!


Looking forward to your entry, Tommy! Hopefully you will inspire some others out there to make their first entry ... we love and embrace new Seasonistas ... yes, you can ... you will love it. So come on, all you lurkers, now (whenever you're reading this) is an excellent time to dip your toe in the Seasons pool!

Having a youtube (http://www.youtube.com) account is the way to do this. You can just upload the wmv to youtube, they take care of converting it to a format they can show to anyone. When you have uploaded it to youtube you can use the filmstrip icon on the top of the edit screen to insert the video.

Woohoo, Tommy - you did it! Well done, terrific Seasons entry, so much fun to see you "live".

One last bit of advice: check in to YouTube periodically, and respond to the comments you get on your videos. A simple "thank you" will suffice, or whatever you're moved to say. That encourages people to keep watching and commenting on future vids. Also, if and when you have time, go watch other people's (especially the folks who comment on yours) and comment on theirs. You are getting some lovely comments over there!

The problem with me is I can only record two or three videos a year. That's because, usually, I wait for something for inspiration to strike me. Is that OK to place a video in a contest, even if I don't record one once a year?

Hi, aspieman. The point of the weekly Seasons challenges is to prompt you to look into your songbooks and your memory for a song you can record for the specific Seasons theme that week. No need to post every week—if the theme doesn't interest you, just wait a bit. But no, you shouldn't place a video in a contest if it doesn't meet the contest guidelines.

If you record a song just once a year, when the inspiration hits you, post it as a freestanding thread under Links and Videos. But do keep any eye on the Seasons as each new one starts, usually late Saturday night in the US, and maybe that will be your inspiration.

some of the season themes are pretty specific - a particular band, or something. other times everything is pretty open and the choice of possible songs is huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. if you check out each week's theme on Saturday night, see if anything grabs you, if you are inspired you have the week to work something up, if not just see if the following week's theme is more tempting

if you can't work up a song in the time, you can always take a late vid to the misfits island, and say it was for X week but you're a bit late.

I started uke 14 months ago, just take a look at my first video, I was rubbish! :)

Joining in on the Seasons really helped me to develop & gain confidence, they are a great bunch of people.

The mic looks like it will work well enough, I started out using a cheap digital camera, & I've just bought & used a 17 USB mic for one of my entries.
You may have to play a bit louder than you think at first, but you can find that out in the comfort of your own home.

Nobody saw my face for at least 6 months, I didn't want to scare them!
Same with 'singing', just wasn't comfortable, but I can just about manage a bit now & again.

My advice, join in & have some fun. :)

We have 5 open seasons that still require hosts in the current sign up period.
They are in May June and July.
We'd love them to be filled by first time hosters...

Heino, if you've got a theme ready to go i will happily vacate season 268 and let you host ....

There is an extensive list of previous themes to look through on the Seasons III thread to find out if it's been done before....

what do you need to know? ask away! everyone will help

if you're nervous of how it'll be, maybe start the week with a one song limit - i believe that's how the seasons started??? one song per person??? and we've had people do that, even more recently. you can always raise the limit as the week goes on, maybe after the first weekend, when you know how you're doing with everything, or on wednesday, that's a popular day for song limit re-thinks, or at the second weekend, when the season is close to ending - or you can keep the original song limit all week. anyone who wants to keep doing songs, can put them on the island thread - that's what it's there for - so don't feel bad about having a song limit!

Yes, I am super nervous about hosting, but I'm more nervous about doing everything right. Do I give out prizes or NOT, am I critiqueing right? Or more? Is the theme right or not challenging enough? My brain is in a panic.

NOW you tell me! :rolleyes:

Seriously, though, here's my take on the bare minimum you need to know/do to host a Season: (Linda created a fantastic video which walks you through most everything. Check it out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plprrAWxpEA)!)

1. Think of a topic. It can be narrow ("Songs by the Bee Gees") or broad ("Songs written in the 20th Century"). You can repeat the same theme idea as a previous Season. Remember, it's your Season, tell us what you want!

2. Know how to record a video and post it on YouTube. Should be simple for anyone who's already entered a Season. You will most likely want to post an introduction video for your Season. It's not required, but it's nice.

2. Know how to create a YouTube playlist. Easy to do easy to find out how. Here's the official instructions to do that. (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/57792?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en)

3. Create a Playlist for your Season.

4. Come up with the Rules you want us to follow which are in addition to your Theme. Feel free to steal the rules from another Season. Just about the only hard rule is the start & end time for your Season. How many entries are allowed, is up to you. It truth, a three or four entry limit isn't really much more difficult than a 1-entry limit, and it makes us Seasonistas much happier! If you wish to award prizes, wonderful! If you don't, wonderful too! Your contest, your rules.

5. Create a new thread and post your introduction video and rules the Saturday afternoon before the contest starts. This gives everyone a chance to think about songs and stuff!

6. Once the contest begins and entries start coming to your Season, watch and listen to them on YouTube rather than here. Doing that, you can comment on them, and ADD them to your Playlist, at the same time as you're listening.

7. Encourage, joke, support, and praise entries in your season thread, as time and your own enthusiasm permits. Do what you want to do. Remember, this is for fun!

8. After your Season ends, prepare a "wrap-up" video. You can discuss the Season, award prizes, or just bask of the ukulele goodness! Celebrate your Season with us! If you can post your wrap-up within a couple of weeks of the Season's end, we love it!

9. When in doubt, PM someone! Most everyone is eager and willing to help!

10. Remember, this is for fun! Have fun! We've all made mistakes while hosting. Big deal. We've all had bunches of fun hosting too!

Hope this helps a bit.

randy has a load of super points in his post, above

it is in the seasons guidelines, that there should be a prize - that can be as big and amazing as an actual uke, or something much more humble! but prizes seem to be going out of fashion, and an increasing number of people don't award prizes now.

as far as commenting goes, people play this different ways. some people comment on vids just here on the thread, some people just comment on the actual youtube pages of the videos, and some people comment both on the youtube vid pages, and here on the thread - the latter is more work! i think the easiest thing, is just to comment on the youtube video page

what to say in comments - just say what you wanna say! great song, funny song, cool uke, nice hat, cute cat, whatever you wanna say!

do set up a playlist, and add people's songs as you view them - some folk view and listen just on the playlist, rather than following the season on the UU thread

challenging themes are great but so are not-challenging ones, where people can bring pretty much what they fancy! go with a theme that will bring YOU, as host, songs YOU fancy hearing - the season is like a party, and our songs are presents - just let us know what kind of thing you want us to bring!

07-03-2018, 06:16 PM
You're getting good advice here.
If you tell me where you are in the world I'll tell when it's a good time to introduce your new season. And I'll certainly PM you in the week before and keep in touch as your season approaches. A quirk of the seasons is that it all revolves around Hawaii time and goes for 8 days.
Just tell us what sort of songs you want us to bring and how many. There are usually around 40ish participants - so use that number to know how many songs you think you can listen to and set your limit accordingly.
Certainly no need for prizes but some sort of closure for the season is always appreciated. All up to you as host.
Really no need to worry.
Any specific questions - just ask and you'll get a response as you can see.....

Hi Aspieman,

Don't stress.

I like to give out small prizes (usually souvenirs from where I live) but there is no need to. Nobody will be upset either way.

As for the judging criteria for prizes, most people just draw names out of a hat because it's really really hard to decide, but if you want to award prizes based on your own judgment, that's fine too.

With regard to comments, just be nice and the rest doesn't matter. Remember that people's playing and singing ability varies wildly but they (we) are all contributing to the best of their (our) ability and trying to make the whole thing fun and enjoyable. As a warm up, why not try commenting on as many people's videos as you can in a season that you aren't hosting? Everyone loves receiving comments :)

As for the theme, again, it doesn't matter. There have been themes where I have really struggled to come to grips with the content (Who is Buffy Saint Marie and what is Bluegrass, anyway?) and some that have been ridiculously easy (I mean every song that's worth playing was written in the 1980s and 1990s, right?). Either way I've had fun with them.

I've also posted a link to a tutorial that Linda made about creating playlists, etc. It helped me when I hosted.

Once you get the theme posted & add a couple of comments to the first videos you start to relax, so don't fret it. :)

If you do find you are having any problems, just shout out, & we'll all help you out. :cool:

I'm hoping everything goes well here, and thank you guys for the advise, you guys. Limiting to one or two songs is a good idea so I'm not very overwhelmed. I live in Huntington Beach, Ca., Standard Pacific time.

The time to post your season theme would be around 5:00pm on Saturday (July 28) and the season would start at 3:00am on the Sunday (July 29).

First ever submission, though love SOTU. Don't think anyone has done "Dancing in the Dark" yet? Also not sure I'm submitting right!

Welcome haberkow. BEV gives you good advice.

And Lynda, sorry about leaving you off the playlist. I’ve remedied it and hope you will be able to find it in your heart to forgive me. :)
