Okay, so I’m still rolling on the October challenges. I’m working on getting the Inktober stuff caught up, but lateness happened again. I’m cannot foresee a day when my shit will be together, but I will not give up, damn it.
I had to move servers and I thought I was comprehensive when I zipped and downloaded everything from the old locale, but turns out I was wrong.
It’s looking like I’m going to have to completely redo the ukulele videos. So, those are going to be missing until I have a few spare minutes to contemplate the depths of my self-loathing and re-record that cursed song.
Ukulele is the perfect intro instrument for people who want to engage further with music but lack the experience or formal instruction. Concert ukuleles are cheap and offer an easy in if you want to get better acquainted with a song or music in general.
I also argue that it’s a great hobby for writers. When my writing is not going so well, I tend to pick up an instrument and hope it will all work itself out through thinky magic. Strangely enough, it seems to work.
Ukulele is the least hassle, its the easiest to clean, tune, and keep in working condition. To my elongated alien fingers, a concert ukulele has a well-proportioned fretboard — neither too roomy nor crowded. Additionally, it travels well and newcomers will find that the nylon strings are easier on the fingers than nickle-wound guitar or bass strings or razorwire violin strings.
