The ukulele, an incredible instrument.

I had always wanted to learn to play an instrument, generally the first one that is thought to learn is the guitar; However, I know some people who, shortly after starting to learn, stopped playing, because they felt that they were not advancing, arguing that it was very complicated, that diminished my desire to learn to play the guitar and the possibility of learning to play an instrument, each time I saw her further and further away.

Despite this, something in me still wanted to learn to play an instrument; so, surfing the internet, for unknown reasons (probably the destination), I saw a "little guitar", I still didn't know that what I was seeing was a ukulele. The first thing that caught my attention was that there were countless designs and a very wide range of colors, I read more about the ukulele and looked for music where this instrument was used, realizing that just by listening to it, the sound put me in a good mood. which is joyful and unmistakable.

In the end; I decided to buy one; however, I didn't know which size to choose, I thought the best option was a tenor one; since possibly learning with a soprano was going to be difficult because of the size. I remember that I played it daily and I realized that it was not difficult, the chords are simple and for strumming it is just a matter of following the rhythm, I feel that everything flows in a very natural way, but you have to practice. Later, despite the love I have for my tenor ukulele, it didn't give me the characteristic sound of a soprano; so months later, despite not having a breakthrough, I bought a soprano ukulele; a great decision. Learning to play a ukulele of this size is very simple, it is also very beautiful, since you can choose the design that you like the most and transport is very easy because it is small.

Although I haven't been learning for a year, now I have 2 goals, the first is to keep learning; At the same time, I give the animals a relaxing time, which I think will be a great audience, since thanks to my profession I have the possibility of living with sheep, goats and other animals; however, for obvious world reasons I am now away from them.

The second, traveling with my ukulele to play it everywhere; For example, at night on the beach, with the sea as the background sound, I imagine it will be something very relaxing, as well as being an excellent opportunity to spend an incredible evening with family and / or friends.

In conclusion, what I would recommend if you are thinking of buying a ukulele is, stop thinking about it and buy one with a design that you like, you will not regret it, learning is simple, as well as addictive (you will always want to continue practicing) and it is always good to learn new things.
