Over the course of the semester I was assigned to learn something using online resources only. I chose to learn the ukulele, something I would be interested in continuing after the semester was over. I was really surprised at how easy it was to find the necessary resources I needed to learn the song Interlude: Moving On by Paramore. It took lots of time and mistakes but thanks to the help of UkuTabs.com and YouTube I was able to achieve my goal of being able to play and sing this song.
I made three videos of my progress throughout the semester. This first video showed my progress on learning the chords and the strum. One of the challenges I had during this stage of learning was moving my fingers from the G chord to the B7 chord quick enough, so there wasn’t a pause between them.
This second video was to show how I was able to play with the music at 75% speed. I had tried at 100% but it proved to be a little to fast for me still.
For the third and final video I learnt the lyrics, so I was able to play and sing the song at the same time. This was a little challenging as I either tended to forget the lyrics while concentrating on the chords or forget the chords or strum while focusing on the lyrics. But with lots of practice I was able to achieve my goal.
