Ukulele is supposed to fun, and there’s not reason it has to be hard! You can play some great songs with just a basic mastery of a few chords, so you just need some easy songs on the ukulele.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned this year came from watching a mouse trying to tote a cracker home for dinner. In the video a little bitty mouse tries to pick up a gigantic cracker and throw it 3 inches above it’s head so it can take it to it’s little mouse family for a nice dinner. But guess what happens? He fails. The little mouse tries 32 different times to haul the cracker off. He throws it, Carries it. Pole vaults off of it. And he fails every single time. Finally he takes a break, takes a little nibble, and on his 33rd attempt…he makes it! And his sweet little mouse family dined like kings that night! And, my ukulele friend, I’ll let you work out the Valuable Lesson for yourself…
Woah, mama. For Christmas, I got a gift certificate to go indoor skydiving! (Yep, that’s a real thing). Naturally, I had to go, and it was an absolute blast, until I nearly choked on my parachute reading the prices on the rate card. Indoor skydiving costs $60 for two minutes, or $900 per hour! To save yourself $900 and hour, just stick to an inexpensive hobby, like playing the ukulele.

I hope this little guide has been helpful.
Why is a 10-year-old much, much better at making music than I am?
