Ukulele Submission Amazing grace

Discuss your Ukulele recording. Items to discuss include timing, note accuracy, rhythm accuracy. *

My song choice is Amazing Grace. I did not change the tune of the Ukulele. Time signature is 90 beats per minuits

I think that I could do better playing in time and not to cut it cause cutting makes the sound weird and is very time-consuming. I also think that we have to tune the Ukulele before playing. I also think that making important things stand out is very important, such as making the song and the singing louder as it is more important. I also think that making the beats so better as you could accurately play the song. I think the volume between the notes and the length is very important because it is what helps the smoothness and the fluency. Overall, I think the most important thing is the timing which the beats in the Garageband really is useful.

Discuss your overall understanding of Garageband and its processes. Items to discuss include editing, timing, arranging, timing, etc. How has your skill at Garageband impacted your song? *

I think I really have to work on understanding how to edit, but I also think it really helps to make the singing and the song match. I think that no one could play the song 100 per cent correct by hand and Garageband is really important as it helps us fix mistake and un-fluency. although I am still learning how to use it and is improving. During the process, I used Garageband to help me put the singing, the trimming and the song together and used it to make the timing better. I found many problems such as playing the song too fast and the beats really come in handy during that time, it really helped me play the song better.
