In the spirit of creating new habits and working on conquering fears. I recorded a little video of myself last night. Yesterday, I received my birthday present from James and it is a brand new Lanikai Ukulele. I spent the day carrying it all around on our trip to the market and the dry goods store secretly wishing I could break out in song.
When we got home I did some research and found a great site for beginners. If you ever want to learn to play the ukulele this site www.ukeschool.com is the best ever. Someday I hope to be able to make a contribution, because I have been so incredible impressed so far. It’s almost as if I am taking an actual lesson, and the fellow is hilarious, so it’s just great.
So I sat me down and learned me the basics; and just over an hour later I was playing my first song, the birthday song.
With that I leave you to marvel in awe at my natural talent.
For those who might be interested, I am a lefty, although, I am playing the uke strung standard and flipped over to the left. The main reason for this is so’s not to limit myself musically. Technically, I should be able to pick up any standardly strung ukulele and simply flip it over. It’s pretty simple to learn as I am just inverting the fret board.
