Is it easy-ish? Brian has expressed interest more than once and I'm not sure whether to buy one for him. He hasn't played string before, sax was his instrument.
Welcome your opinions
It appears to me to be pretty easy to play a uke...
Just pick it up... put fingers on frets in random places... with other hand "strum" the strings at will and wail along with the other, ear bashing, hooligans.
(Many choose to prop a sheet of music up in front of them in order to give the impression they know what song they are "playing".)
Aided by copious amounts of brain cell killing liquids, all of which have been bought for pennies and smuggled through customs after wintering abroad, your Funster audience will scream in approval, sing along with you (sometimes with the same words as you but not often) and throw money into the hat which will passed around at 2.45 am after 6 hours non stop noise.
Later on in the morning, players and audience members will emerge from their (or other people's) motorhomes, mingle and tell each other what a fantastic night they had.
The show organisers will be so impressed by the goings on that next year they will provide the Funsters with a free marquee which, because of some mistake in the office, will be pitched well away from any normal show visitors.
You know it makes sense...
Everyone should have a hobby
(And, as Funster Janine so cleverly suggested, leave an empty uke case on the step outside your van and no one will park anywhere near you as they will assume you might start "practising".)
Problem with guitarists is that they tend to indulge in a lot of 'Fret board W***ery' We of the "lesser" instrument enjoy the simplicity of a well constructed chord progression.Go for straight to the guitar, then you'll feel you can play any "lesser" instrument lol
Is it just me or does that read on first glance as Bristol Kennel Club to anyone else?My main group is Bristol Ukulele Club and I went along to the Jam quite a bit last year until work commitments interferred. Bristol U3A have a couple of groups who meet during the day.
