    Default 23rd Season Of The Ukulele

    Seasons of the Ukulele Season 23
    Starts- Sunday July 22nd, Ends Sunday July 29th.
    This Weeks Theme
    HOME SWEET HOME
    My wife and I finally bought our first home. To celebrate I wanted to host a week in which the songs include the word Home or House. Or, to broaden the parameters, do a song about where you live or where you're from. Pretty much anything you think would fit the theme of Home Sweet Home is fair game.
    PARAMETERS
    Video must be one take - no overdubs. It must also be a new video.
    The Ukulele must be the central instrument in your video though there may be other instruments as well.
    State at the beginning of your video that it is for Season 23 of the Ukulele
    Post your videos in this thread
    Multiple versions of the same song are OK
    You may enter as many times as you would like, but your final video is the one that is judged
    JUDGING CRITERIA
    Points will be awarded as follows:
    Musicianship /15
    Singing /15
    Overall performance /10 passion/personality/creativity/je ne sais quoi.
    Set and Costume /10
    This allows for fifty points from each judge. Scores will be collated and averaged for final score.

    *** BONUS POINTS
    Perform a song with your family, roommates, and/or neighbors and you get +3

    BONUS TRACKS
    Bonus tracks are encouraged and welcomed, but will not count towards your point total.

    JUDGING
    Myself with several friends and family members.

    PRIZES
    I tried to upload a video highlighting this weeks prizes but my camera is not cooperating.

    - A hard soprano case made by Guardian (it has its own hygrometer!)

    - A Toucan Sam & The Fruitloops t-shirt (they're the ukulele band I perform from time to time)

    - A print of mine from my photography days which I unearthed in our move.

    The first place winner can choose which prize they want, followed by the second then the third.

    DEADLINE: 11:59 PM HAWAII TIME, SUNDAY JULY 29th.

    Have fun folks! And welcome home to the 23rd Season of the Ukulele!

    Thanks for catching that PeeWee. To quote 23Skidoo from this weeks current season: "Bonus tracks are encouraged and welcomed, but will not count towards your point total." I've updated the above info. Cheers.

    Cool Theme! I wish I started from the very beginning but it's better late than never!!

    I am hoping this isn't my entry as I when I think of Home, I think of my family so I'm trying to get my wife to do a song with me.

    I believe the rules are the last song counts!!!

    Saw that omission in the original guidelines. You may regret saying this
