The ukulele… it’s gotta be one of the most portable and entertaining instruments in the world! I first came across this instrument while listening to Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The sound just gave off such a positive happy vibe. Then, a super gifted ukulele player by the name of Jake Shimabukuro caught my eye while scrolling through YouTube. His rendition of this song was incredible! I was hooked and just had to learn to play. So, here’s what I did….
- Which size ukulele to get?
- What kind/brand of ukulele to get?
- Ukulele strap to help hold the instrument in position
- Carrying case
