Thread: Beatles covers contest

  1. #1

    Default Beatles covers contest

    Hi guys.

    I'm a huge Beatles fan and I thought it would be fun to run a contest based on my twin passions: the ukulele and the Fab Four.

    Your challenge is to cover any Beatles song on the uke and to make it your own.

    PRIZE - A 50 voucher to use at http://www.southernukulelestore.co.uk/

    RULES - Post a Youtube video in this thread of your cover.
    - Introduce yourself and state at the start of the video this is for the Beatles covers competition.
    - The deadline is Friday 6 June, 5pm GMT
    - 1 take only, no overdubs

    JUDGING - The Southern Ukulele Store team will judge the most original entry and announce the winner at the beginning of the week following the deadline.

    Good luck!

    Good luck guys!

    I have to admit that I had to replace the batteries in my Flip to record this in "one" take! Thanks for a fun project!

    Guys, thank you for your entries and so sorry for the delay in response! I went and got married and lost the thread (pardon the pun, though it's not the worst I've come up with).

    I will get back to you with an announcement shortly - sorry again!

    Again sorry for the delay in this guys, but the winner is...yourliver!

    Both covers were great but yours just snuck it for originality.

    If you email me at sam@fusewave.co.uk I will arrange your prize voucher.

    Thanks guys!

    I'd like to thank all the little people that made this possible...John, Paul, George, and Ringo.
    Special shout out to the Oompa Loompas and the members of the lollypop guild.
    Thank you all.
