  • 5 Good Reasons to Learn the Ukulele

There is no excuse why anyone cannot learn to play the ukulele. Here are five reasons why you should buy a ukulele and start playing.

  1. 1. It's easy to learn. It only has 4 strings and you can learn to play a few simple 3-chord songs in a day.

  2. 2. It's fun. It has a bright and happy sound and makes people smile.

  3. 3. It's small. That makes it attractive for children. It's portable enough for adults to take on their travels, or to a party, or to Hawaii.

  4. 4. It's affordable. Start with a basic model for less than the cost of a tank of petrol. You can always add more models as you progress along your musical way.

  5. 5. It's sociable. You can strum and sing along at the same time. 70,000 ukuleles were sold in Australia in 2010, so there are a lot of people strumming, learning and making music together. What a conversation starter.

As George Harrison said, " Everybody should have and play a uke, it's so simple to carry with you and it is one instrument you can't play and not laugh".
