Learning To Play The Ukulele – Find The Correct Training
Year 2014 seems to me to be the year of the Ukulele come back, and with the amount of celebrities taking up the interest in this wonderful instrument, the growth in its popularity has been phenomenal.
With the ever more exposure to great music from the likes of the legend Israel “IZ” KamakawiwoÊ»ole (RIP) and Jake Shimabukuro, Ukulele music is popping up all over the place from movies, TV programmes to TV adverts, and people are buying Ukuleles and trying to learn how to play (like myself).
First of all it is important to buy a good quality Ukulele and the best thing about this instrument is that it is not too expensive to buy, and picking up a decent one is easy.
Also, decide what type of Ukulele you would like as there are 4 main sizes to choose from. Soprano, Concert, Tenor and the Baritone, and differ in sound and size.
But the most important fact in Ukulele playing as you begin, is learning the correct way to play and thankfully there is an increasing amount of materiel and resources on the internet or in book shops to help guide you along.
It is important to learn how to tune your instrument, learn the basic chords and notes, learn to pluck your Ukulele not strum as you would a guitar. The Ukulele is one of the easiest instruments to play, but right from the start you need to do it correctly and learning the wrong way will make it harder and difficult to take in the information, leading to confusion and tuning out.
As seen on You-Tube and so forth, crazily a lot of people are taking up the Ukulele and to me this is brilliant. It is a wonderful and beautiful instrument, very exciting to learn, and it is relatively easy to do so which is fantastic for people, like me, who are not musically gifted but willing and trying to play this sweet sounding little instrument.
So make sure, as a beginner, right from the start, you find the correct training and join the thousands of crazy Ukulele playing fans, taking the world by storm.
