Your First Ukulele Lesson

By Holly Rudin-Braschi

Oh-muh-gawd! You just got your first ukulele and are so excited. But, you don’t have any idea how to play and you want to start now. Perhaps you were inspired to purchase your ukulele because a friend invited you to a uke group, one of your favorite musicians plays a song on the uke that you want to learn, you used to play as a child and want to resume, or you impulsively purchased a uke you saw beckoning in a shop window.


These techniques can help ukulele novices get started, as well as give seasoned ukulele players a new look at how they handle their instrument.
