The Ukulele: Little but powerful

We have all heard someone, ever, refer to the ukulele as "Guitarrita". Of course, it makes a lot of sense because it is like a tiny guitar! But on some occasions, it seems that somehow they use it in a derogatory way, as if he were the youngest son of the guitar, as if being smaller and with two strings less, he had much less power and therefore was less wonderful.
The guitar is great, sounds harmonically perfect, adapts to any genre, can be played alone or accompanied by another instrument, and is also easy to play ... But wait! The ukulele has those same qualities, plus a few more. For example, its size; You can carry it anywhere without breaking down people on the road, you can take it on a trip without taking up all the space in your luggage and you can even carry it as carry-on luggage.
They are made of wood, but also of plastic, and they can even be touched underwater! There are in all the colors you can imagine, of all possible sizes and shapes.
Maybe some people underestimate it because of its small size, but most likely, those people have not yet had the fortune to hold one in their hands, to tear their delicate strings with their fingers and feel how that soothing sound emanates from them. , so beautiful, so soft but so powerful ... So perfect.
They may not know that much of the magic created by some of the singers and composers they know was born, precisely, from this tiny but wonderful instrument. As LP said in an interview, the Ukulele is "Chiquito, but powerful."
It seems that his size does not match his genius, with the immense magic that can emanate from him It is so incredible! And, in addition, so noble, that anyone who approaches him, whoever he is, could touch him. It doesn't take much time to understand how your strings work and you don't need to be a music expert to play your first chord and dabble in this magical world of music.
For all that and more, the Ukulele is one of the simplest but most beautiful instruments. The amount of things that can be achieved with something so tiny is impressive, and it seems incredible that many of us started in this musical world thanks to this beautiful little guitar with four strings.
