I’m learning to play ukulele!
I know some chords! Pretty much instinctively I know how to finger C F E and A Major, A minor and A7, Bb and Bb Minor, and D. The only string experience I have is a bass I wasn’t great at learning fingerings on.
I can play two songs! I can play the Steven Universe theme (baby steps right?) and Ingrid Michaelson’s “You and I.” I’m slowly working on 21pilot’s “House of Gold” and Izzy’s “Over the Rainbow.”
I’m having a lot of fun. Its hard. My fingers hurt. I’m having a blast and a half doing this.
