Winning Video for UU Christmas on 34th Street Video Contest

I held a much under-promoted (I got really sick just after starting the contest) Christmas Video Contest on Ukulele Underground (link takes you to the thread on their forum where you can see all the entries). Despite the fact I didn’t get the word out like I’d like to have, there were still some great entries from the UU community and here is the winner:

Congratulations to Mina (who wins an Outdoor Ukulele) and thank you to everyone! Merry Christmas!

Ukulele Contest Winner Announced : Mark Dutton, “Just Too Short” (Original Song)

Mark Dutton’s entry of his original song, “Just Too Short,” is the winner of the 2-Chord Song Contest, D & A7, from UkulelePlay.com.

This entry had a lot going for it . . .

  • A cute, original children’s song.
  • Great playing.
  • Creative use of chord inversions and alternate voicings.
  • A nice tutorial at the end of the video.

Thanks Mark, wonderful stuff! You’re Mahalo Smiley Face Ukulele will be on its way to you shortly.
