Does that mean a video some time soon? ;)


Ooh I hope so - I love it when people post videos. You all are so talented and photogenic. :eyelashes:

I learned how to play Issues on uke but I'm not very good at it, so I haven't done a video yet. I'm hoping I'll improve but I seem to have reached a plateau. :?

I now have a teeny netbook with a webcam, but issues with my laptop take precedence. Once I hopefully fix the lappy, I'll go for it :rock: on the netbook. :rock:

Being not very good at it hasn't stopped me. :lol: Record the video anyway, mock. I'd like to see more people than just me and biscuit post videos.

And Nancy, get that laptop fixed. I want to see Youk in action.

(Gulp) I did a drastic thing today - I bought a new Gateway laptop on Home Shopping, with Windows 7 Home Premium and a webcam, so in a couple of weeks, I'll have no flipping excuse. :sofa:
That means I'll be able to hear all the newer videos!!! :yay:

*Goes to practice instead of having a snack* :rock: :rock: :rock:

Welcome, rachel! :cheer: :folkon: :cheer:

We always encourage our new members to make a beginner video as soon as you can strum out a song...not so we can laugh at you or anything... :halo: ...but so that you can look back and see how far you've come. Truly, you will be amazed at how quickly you will have peeling, sore fingertips...and will be playing a zillion songs and having the time of your life!! :heart:

What three chords do you know?

It's true - I look back at my first video and cringe, but then smile because I know that I've come so far :nod:

Welcome, Rachel! :D

Do record a video :nod: I know it sounds daunting, but believe me it really is fun, both making one and looking back on it later :) I don't even cringe watching my first one tbh. I still think it was fairly good for a noob. I still trip up though, even after a year :rolleyes:

I just know C, F and G7 so I'm just making little tunes out of them.
the challenge for me will be recording a video (without a webcam) and trying to put it on the internet, but I'll work it out. Which thread do we put them in? I'll stop being a noob soon.

I'd like to officially add my name to this rollcall.

Rachel, I remember just after I bought my sherry I was having second thoughts about my ability to play. I was looking at the chords for the original version of Somewhere over the Rainbow and just stummed out F, G7 & C, and something just clicked and I instantly felt ok about it all (I'm aware of how weird that sounds :wink: !).

Can't wait to see a video.

You can play "Friends" (FotC) with A, D and G, Rachel. It's super easy :-)

Rachel and kipples, welcome! :cheer:

Rachel, in your excitement the other night, can you remember what chords Bret and Nigel were discussing for "5 Foot 2, Eyes Of Blue"? I haven't found that sheet music yet, but I'm going to look it up. I'd love to know which chords they were stuck on.

Also, if you know C, A minor is another one-finger chord that makes a song in C sound fuller. So if you play the progression, C, A minor, F, and G7, you can play lots of tunes! :rock: Go for it! :rock:

Kipples, can't wait to hear your playing! :rock:

D7
Diamond ring and all those things
G7 F

C E7
Could she love could she woo
A7
Could she could she could she coo

I got interrupted in the middle of that post, and forgot where I was. I meant to say I couldn't wait to hear Rachel play, and kipples, er... I forgot what I had planned to post about you, kipples. :doh:

Thanks for the chords, Laura. I can't wait to go play it. But I always heard it "Has anybody seen my gal?" It is the definitive song for dancing the Charleston. :nana:
