100 Days of Ukulele 2021

For the fourth year in a row, I’m participating in the 100 Days of Ukulele (formerly 100 Days of Ukulele Songs) offshoot of #the100DayProject. This year, it is starting (has started) on Jan. 31, 2021. If you're playing along on Facebook, YT, IG (etc.), you can use the hashtag #100DaysUke2021 to share and find others' posts.

Unlike in past years, during this round of hundred, I will not be posting a full song every day. I’ve already posted more than 700 originals and covers to YouTube, and it’s time for me to focus more deeply on technique. This year, only my full length videos will be available on YT. Practice clips will be on IG and FB. 

What are some of my goals for these 100 days? Well, I hope to create my first Playthrough and Tutorial videos, to test those waters, and to continue to post at least one original song every 25 days. I plan to keep pushing myself to spend more time on practicing and less time on making the video of the practice. The point is not perfection; the point is to continue the daily habit of my creative work.   

For 2021, I have broken my 100 Days up into 10 day areas of focus.
