UKULELE GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT




The company who sent me this ukulele to review loved the BTM community so much that they asked to sponsor a giveaway with us! I thought that a fun way to get people involved and playing with friends would be to do a "2 people 1 uke" contest. If you'd like to see the entries, look through the comments section of this video

Here are the top competitors... you will also find the winners here!

ENTRY 10

What I loved about this entry
  • This was a very engaging video. You took a lot of time to write the cards.
  • You were creative. You didn't have someone to play with, so instead of have "2 people 1 uke" you had "2 ukes 1 person"
  • You have grown so much as a musician. I was impressed with your chord switching and strumming. I see you have improved and that you've been practicing. 
This is one of my top 5 most engaged subscribers. Thank you so much for always being there. I really appreciate your enthusiasm, participation, and how active you are. Hope to see more of your videos in the future!
