U is for Ukulele

These pint sized instruments have been enjoying a major comeback in recent years. Part of the attraction, I think, is that the ukulele is fairly idiot-proof. With only four strings to deal with, learning and playing chords is pretty easy.

So why not buy one yourself? (They're also relatively cheap.) Find a few chord sheets on the internet, practise a little, and in no time at all you'll think you're the bees-knees. Maybe you'll even film yourself playing your ukulele. Like this wally.

Question: What instrument(s) do you play, and is there one you'd like to learn?


  1. you know that's a great idea. I have been wanting to learn guitar but maybe I should start with the ukelele. thanks for the idea :)

  2. I played the clarinet and the piano. The ukelele sounds like fun!

  3. I play a little piano, but nothing mesmerizing. My husband plays guitar and bass. George Harrison loved the ukelele. I remember watching a clip -- great sound.
    Love your choice for U.

  4. My kids are awesome at playing the ukelele. There are some pretty fun popular songs that they've learned.
