A song for me
Playing the ukulele is the simplest, one learns to play it little by little and gradually. So different from the other string instruments; short next to the guitar, soft compared to the cello and much less elegant than the violin, sweeter than any of the above, without a doubt. Taking hold of a good ukulele is like carrying an amulet in your pocket, it is activated just by playing it and even if the strings are short, throughout the day — or at night, depending on the occasion, depending on who sings or who listens — its harmonics continue to vibrate. our heads, on the hands and arms for those who play it and on the chests of those who dared to sing. Learning to play ukulele is to understand that you can't solo one of the guns, that you can't show off with some riff-raff's and that your forte is never going to be R&B. But it teaches you to play by the campfire, at the end of a dinner or on a morning at the beach: to play calmly. Somehow the ukulele helps us to assume destiny, to listen to the strings little by little to imitate them with prudence and reach the rhythms with accuracy, because nothing sounds worse than hurried notes. There will always be a song that reminds us of something, someone or somewhere. And it is so easy that so few strings make you smile, but it is easier for a circle of chords that we learned on our first day playing to be that song that you sang to the love of your life, one that left and did not For better or for worse, those songs stay inside the ukulele and come out from time to time to remind us of what we lost, but they also tell us how much we grew and how much we learned; as if the chords were witnesses of those emotions and the wood its deposit. Perhaps the instrument is so simple to play because its sound is made for few people, immediate emotions for a small audience. Or perhaps it is easy to touch it because it becomes a small extension of the feelings that we most appreciate, it is enough to feel the wood in the hands; small and fragile, comfortable and easy to place between the arms; like charging the soul while telling stories to listeners.
Depending on the character, we choose the tessitura, with very striking colors to fill the environment with joy or pure wood with varnish if one is in mourning. And of course, do not forget to pay attention to the pegs if you are looking for one, remember that God is in the details. As I said at the beginning; learning to play the ukulele is very simple, you will never regret trying and you will enjoy it, almost certainly and possibly true.
The difficult thing is knowing which songs to load

The first time I played a ukulele, I couldn't stop playing it. All my life I wanted to learn to play the guitar, however, I have a problem with my fingers; which my little finger is much smaller than normal, my phalanx is "incomplete", so learning to play guitar was extremely difficult,
I think we can all learn to play the ukulele !!! Entering the world of music and learning to play instruments makes you come to appreciate songs, concerts and the diversity of creating music.
