    Hi David,

    The loudest one of those three (myrtle, mango, koa) right after they're built is usually mango. But, the myrtle will open up the most over time. Within about 6 months, it is at least as loud as the other two, and it develops a great bass response.

    I'm going to have my video up soon, but I just want to say thanks for this contest. It inspired me to write a new song for my next album. So whether or not I win, I win!

    Default Jumping into the Deep End

    Hello all,

    This is my first post but I've been a fan of this site for awhile. The contest inspired me to write a new song and introduce myself.

    Default Contest Submission

    Hi!
    My name is Jake Loew.
    This is my entry for the contest.
    It is a piece that I wrote in my front yard right after I got home from a long trip, so I always think of a nice day in my front yard when I play it.
    I also talk about my new CD in the beginning because hopefully more people will see the video.
    Thanks for watching, and keeping ukulele music around.
    Enjoy!



    (Did I submit this correctly? i.e. Does posting this count as my entry? or do I have to upload it somewhere else?)

    I'm all excited about this contest! I really like where I'm from though... So it really helps I talked with my Camera man (I have such a good hubby!) and we're making our travel plans to hit the city and all the places we wanna go and things we wanna do... Yay!

    Alrighty, "This is home" seemed like an appropriate song for the contest. Way better with a base guitar, drums and Jon Foreman; but the pretty clouds should make up for me.

    enjoy.

    I basically cut myself out of the whole video by the time i put all the pictures i wanted in. so if thats a "no-go" for this contest, someone let me know and i'll just post the raw footage.

    Default Ewan McColl's Dirty Old Town

    And the mother looked at the squad of troops marching and she observed that
    everyone was out of step except for her son... that's how I fell about my entry
    I am sort of out of step with everyone elses vision of home.



    Anyway The song is by Ewan McColl and called Dirty Old Town, though
    perhaps it is more famously done by the Pogues or the Dubliners.

    The film clip is public domain and is called "The City" and contrasts a
    idyllic rural setting to the squalor and poverty of an industrial town.
    I only selected scenes that went with the lyrics so it is all grime and smoke,
    but regardless of location, it is community that makes a home.

    Okay, here's my entry. I thought about how to do this, whether I wanted to just record myself singing and playing, but then I thought it might be better to challenge myself. I haven't played to a live audience in over two years, and I've been really nervous about getting back up on a stage. So I figured this contest was an excellent reason to swallow my butterflies and give it a go.

    This song is called "Home" and I performed it live tonight in Santa Barbara. It's an audience recording, and the sound is a little wonky because people in front were snapping their fingers and someone near the camera was tapping their foot which made for a bit of a thumping sound towards the end. But it's the best I could do with the limited equipment I have available to me.

    In my nervousness I referred to it as a "competition" and not a "contest". I hope that doesn't disqualify me!

    Anyway, I hope you like it. Here it is. I posted the lyrics in the video description.

    Feedback and comments are welcome. Mahalo!
