First Ukulele Lesson!

United States
September 23, 2016 12:02am CST
I pulled up a ukulele lesson video on Youtube today and started the process of teaching myself how to play. I picked it up really quickly. In an hour of practice I've taught myself four chords and I can now play a simple version of Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds". :-) I'm soooo happy I decided to get myself a ukukele. I'm so in love with it and I can't wait to continue to teach myself! I'm wanting to get back to practicing the piano again too, but I don't want to overload myself. I'll wait until I'm more comfortable with the ukulele and then I'll start teaching myself the piano again. I'd forgot how much I missed learning. I know that sounds silly but if it's something I'm interested in, I love learning as much as I can about it. :-)

I learn better that way. I never followed things well when someone was teaching me. I learn better when I teach myself. :-)

Glad you're learning to play the uke. It's a popular instrument these days. I'm thinking of getting a Yamaha electric piano. Piano was my first instrument.

You can learn anything so long as you are interested, it's easier to learn now because of the internet and the uke has only 4 strings, glad to know that you are enjoying and learning at the same time.

It's definitely a lot easier to learn things that I'm interested in. If I don't care at all, I can't learn it. lol
