Play the ukulele in 8 minutes

Hello, friends of the ukuleleria, here Karen!

Ready for another blog?

Today we are going to talk about something that Andrea has already talked about a lot in her past videos, Step by step, how to play the ukulele in a few minutes?

The first thing you should know is ...

How are you going to take the ukulele?

The correct way to hold it is with your right or left forearm (this depends on whether you are right-handed or left-handed) the forearm of the strumming arm should press the ukulele a little against your chest, thus no longer letting it slip, and Obviously, the left hand will be holding the ukulele neck. This position is important when you want to play without a strap ...

The next thing you should know ...

The way in which how are you going to call your fingers that press the strings to form the chords is indispensable ...
The way they will now be called is ... Index finger (finger 1), Middle finger (finger 2), Ring finger (finger 3) and Little finger (finger 4). This way it will be much easier for you to read the chords when you search for a song on the internet and see things like these ...

Once you remember that your fingers have the names 1, 2, 3 and 4, it will be much easier for you to understand how to make the chords correctly.

Next step ... what you should also know is the order of the strings, the ukulele has 4 strings, it is always counted from bottom to top, the first string from below is called A (la), the second is called E (Mi) The third is called C (Do) and finally the string number 4 is called G (Sol). Knowing this, you will learn to tune it over and over again ...

Now that you know this, it is time for you to release your first song, here is a video for you to see all the examples that are explained in this blog!

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW YOUR FIRST NOTES IN THE UKULELE?

I hope this blog and the videoblog have helped you a lot, remember to follow us on our social networks ...
