Even with previous experience in guitar or other instruments, we usually make mistakes because we believe it is equal or you are simply new, but guess what, each instrument has its own despite being very similar.
We will help you correct or know if you have these
3 ERRORS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT COMMIT WHEN TOUCH UKULELE.
1.-POSTURE How do I hold my Ukulele?
Many people have grown up with the guitar as a primary instrument, that is; we have seen it in movies, when someone comes to play in a place and we always see (and we remain unconsciously) that when they hold it, it must go as the part of the elbow in the upper left to hold it because it is large and obviously when you hold "a guitar" we think it's the same but nope.
The Ukulele is tiny and weighs nothing like the guitar then, we have to moderate a weight because if you take it in the same way as the guitar, you can slip!
THE RIGHT THING.- (In our opinion it is the right thing to do)
To have the "automatic" posture, put the soundboard at chest level, this will make you hug it. The key is: the forearm, will remain as a lever which will allow you to create many types of strumming / rhythms and, you will have incredible stability. You can have it anywhere but considering that the forearm is the key to the grip on it.
Another common mistake within this, especially when you are just starting, is that you have the fretboard like looking at the sky, because obviously, you want to see the dishes and know what happens but nope again.
In the long run it is something you can do when you have experience and so you like to do it but it is not the correct position because it also takes away agility.
"THE RIGHT THING"
(Quoted because in our opinion it is the right thing to do)
Have you used the technique of enumerating the fingers of your hand?
The only finger that has no number is the thumb.
It is because this really is not to step on a rope as many people do even to make chords. This finger will help us to have a support behind the mast and thus have agility to move the fingers between chords
3.-DO NOT SOUND THE STRINGS
Everything comes together.
It also comes with it as you are holding it.
Having the support with the thumb, as I said, you will have less support so your fingers do not stretch as they should.
THE RIGHT THING
Try to use all your finger joints, that is, it is not like you exaggerate and do as a robot. One technique that many people use is to have "knuckles out."
So each finger will have more space between strings, it will not rosé with the others.
Another very important fact within this, TOUCH WITHIN THE TRANSIT.
The fret is the separation between two sticks, not touching them.
It was useful to you? Tell us what you think for a second part of it.
