If you're going to play the Bob Marley version, you need to sing it reggae too. Your timings were so weird at a few points, maybe there should have been a chord change or something but there wasn't...
You didn't sing when you were supposed to/in time at all so it didn't sound much like the song. Your fingers did look like they were cramping up so good job with that in mind, must be a whole lot harder. I'd say just try to loosen up a little bit, reggae is supposed to be peaceful and joyful, you looked like you were having an awful time haha. Also try to accentuate the second and fourth beats too. Good luck!
You are starting to move the chords faster now. Aint mainland just a great uke?
One input though, try and play without looking at the chordfingers. That will help you get a faster flow. Try and learn to feel the chords instead or looking. Its not easy at the beginning but will be a lot of help later on when you want to learn songs.
Lmao, what are you guys on about saying "there's no Bob Marley version"...
I think you'll find there is, and yes obviously Neil Diamond did the original, but NewMexicoDawg played it like the Bob Marley version.
Positive & not so positive comments are part of the territory when you post a video. I agree with Uke on that. Been there. It was humbling, but it pushed me to get better. As you said everyone has to start at the beginning. The main thing is to keep it fun, and don't give up.
Denno had some good feedback. Also I've used a metronome in the past to help keep a steady beat. A little difficult in the beginning if someone is still getting used to changing chords, but should improve pretty quickly if you practice regularly.
NIce mainland uke. I got a new Pono Baritone recently and love it. There'a a lot of choices out there in the uke world now. Great time to be a uker.
Keep playing and posting.
Many people make the common mistake of thinking this song was sang by Bob Marley, however, it is against his religion, as a Rastafarian, to consume alcohol. Bob Marley never covered this song.
Heres how I live life I am never negative I mean u can make a negative a positive its how he worded it which rubbed me the wrong way maybe its just me reading it wrong.
Anyhow I am over it Uke. sorry I blew up man Hope we can just this pass and move on TY for the feed back it just made me try harder I think my next vid will reflect that
