    It's been Eight Months since I've recorded anything.

    It's been a rough time really. A lots gone on. I'm not sure why I decided this was the song I'd record. The quality (sound, video and performance) aint great but it's up. Was hoping for some feedback? It's crazy comparing it to my videos from when I played every week..

    Video in Video

I've got a rough cut version of what my entry for this season could have been and it's looking pretty shoddy because of...

    Loopy HD App - Feel Good Inc (Gorrilaz)

    My cover of Feel Good Inc by Gorrilaz for Season 112. I don't usually add a second thread for individual videos but I'm not sure how many people know about Loopy HD and I wanted to show a very basic idea of how it could be used. Do many multitrackers here play around with Loopy at all or are...

    Seasons of the Ukulele #103 Geometric Shapes.

    Aha, I get it (: but... Isn't a heart a geometric shape? And stars and crescents? Or am I off the bat here..? Yay or nay to the obscure shapes? Or does it depend on context? Cold, cold heart is about an organ but Heart shaped box is about a geometric shape :) But then most diamond songs are...

    Season 99 - Selling Out.

    Selling Out - Mars Bars The Undertones - Mars Bar :D Much better than my entry for last week, but still hiccups in there, haha. The rustling you hear is my gf gettting the twix and the buttons ready (at the wrong verse) and then misses her self-made cue anyway! Ahaa. Recorded with an effects...

    Had a quick search and seems to be a fair few from Manchester at one point or another, though many are old threads now hopefully some of y'all are still about (: I'm Chris, play for laughs not particularly seriously - first instrument and no lessons, had my Mahalo for a while now but was...
