Aloha! Good thing you came to this blog today to decide to learn to play ukulele. So today I want to talk to you about things you must know to learn to play this beautiful instrument.
This instrument is characterized by being a miniature guitar, and you will hear that many people call it that "guitar" But hey, you should know that this term is not correct, and it breaks my heart every time they tell me (I have nothing against guitars haha) but I think that UKULELE or UKELELE has a lot of magic in their name, in their history and everything everythingnot to call him by his name :(
I will tell you the short story where the ukuleles come from: at the end of the XNUMXth century on a Portuguese island a ship left for Hawaii and these crewmen traveled with an instrument called cavaquinho,. and well, it is known that afterwards a hybrid was made and from this combination the ukulele was born, becoming a very traditional island instrument.
WHAT IS A UKULELE?
A ukulele or ukulele is a stringed instrument, sooo easy to play because it has 4 strings. You can find it in different Soprano, concert, tenor and baritone sizes, but the traditional and most played maas is the Soprano size.
You will also find that they are of different materials, so when choosing a ukulele make sure it is a good, quality, good brand ukulele.we recommend here some steps to choose your first ukulele - CHOOSE MY FIRST UKULELE
NO AGE TO LEARN!
This instrument is perfect for any person and age, it can be played by a child to an adult. I also think it is incredible because it is an instrument that you can learn at home, without a teacher (optional) or intensive and heavy classes. It is so noble and easy that you can guide yourself with videos, there are many reviews and incredible people creating material to share and you can learn everywhere.
A NEW ADVENTURE!
The last thing I would like to add is that the ukulele unites you with more people, in my case I have made a chain with other people that seems incredible to me, that is to say, I started playing myself> then my sister-in-law bought one> then one of my sisters > and I'm adding friends.
And now that I have shared this information with you, you will know all the good things that it will bring to your life to start playing this beautiful instrument. If you need advice, you can write a WhatsApp on our page and a heart ukulelista will help guide you and choose a perfect ukulele for you.
Enjoy this new ukulele adventure! with love Mariana. <3
