Learning the Ukulele
Yesterday was the last of our two “Introduction to the Ukulele” lessons at a music school in town.
Great fun, and not as hard as the guitar (at least the basics!) – although holding it is a bit odd if you’re used to a larger guitar.
We learnt Aloha Oe first, and then a Japanese song which was famous in the west as Sukiyaki. That’s a fun tune, and after 90 minutes of practicing, almost recognizable – if you ignore the bits where I couldn’t find the chords in time.
All I need to do now is buy my own ukulele and learn While My Guitar Gently Weeps…
Mondai nai as we say here! (No problem!)
