Playing songs with the ukulele is always an exciting activity for me. I can spend my whole day in hearing the pleasant sound that it makes when I play it. Many of you would also love the ukulele, but don’t know how to play this instrument? Don’t worry at all, as it’s very simple to play. I have a strong background in ukulele playing and I can give you some tips that can help you learn how to play.
Basically, this instrument belongs to the guitar family and comprises four strings. It comes in different sizes which also determines the volume and tone of the instrument.
The ukulele is normally played by plucking the strings. Fingers can be used for that purpose otherwise you can use a pick which is softer and covered one.
Some people use strumming instead of plucking strings, but I am a professional and recommend using ukulele strings to play a song. In the beginning, you may feel difficulty in adapting this skill, but once you have mastered it, then you can enjoy multiple songs to play on the ukulele.
Before starting with the instrument, you need to tune it. This can be done with the help of an electronic tuner or you can ask your ukulele teacher to guide you in tuning the instrument. In addition to this, do some fingering exercises. These will help you to build a callus gradually. Something like this sounds weird, but would be helpful.
Like every other skill in life, try to learn the basics first. Avoid playing some large fancy tabs when you are just beginning. Instead of this, learn basic chords. I am experienced so, advising you that start with majors, minors and then move to others.
Practice makes a man perfect, so, you need to practice regularly. You can also couple it with the guidance of a professional ukulele teacher like me.
So, Get ready! Don’t wait.
