Two weeks left...
There is two weeks left to submit a review - or just about anything - for a chance at a copy of Jim Beloffs "60's Uke In" (or if you already have it/aren't interested in it maybe I can hook you up with a set of Aguilas or something).
So write a paragraph on why you like a uke/book/cd, record a mp3, just about anything - give back to the uke community :)
I've been doing a lot of reading about strumming across the boards and I feel like that is really the holy grail that isn't covered at any depth by 90% of the beginner materials. Ralph Shaws new DVD is a good start but much more is needed. That is the kind of thing that you really learn best from time spent with other other players, but unfortunately some of us don't have that luxury.
One thing that I would love to add to the site here is just simple films of strums - run through them slowly at first then at speed a few times. Most digital cameras these days take small videos that would be perfect. So film away and send them over! If you are shy just zoom in on your hands and say you want to remain anonymous.
