Okay. So now I'm SERIOUSLY considering buying a uke because I initially thought you need to have some kind of God-given musical talent to begin with (I got up to Grade 3 in piano, but haven't practised for about three years now), but according to a lot of Google searches, it's an easy instrument to learn.
They have cheap ones, but they say they're "ideal for children" or something like that, which makes me think they're not "real" or "proper" ukes. On the other hand, I don't want to pay $369, either.
If someone could look at what's available and give me some advice, I'll be eternally grateful!http://www.allansmusic.com.au/Search.aspx?s=ukulelehttp://www.allansmusic.com.au/Search.aspx?s=ukelele
"Do you know someone who is too young for a guitar but too old for a toy instrument? A ukulele could be a very special gift." LOL!
I don't think I'm too young
, but I am terrible at trying to wrap my fingers around the frets of a "normal" guitar. Tried it once and nearly broke my whole ARM, while my eight-year-old cousin laughed, took it off me and proceeded to play a whole Cat Stevens song without making any mistakes.
Will I still have this problem with a uke? Or is it a lot easier?
I'm quite excited about this...
