The decision has been made. Drum roll please ......... I have decided I am finally going to learn how to play the ukulele. *takes bow*
In January I purchased my own ukulele and I was very determined to learn how to play it. That lasted about a week and a half before pre-internship got crazy and my ukulele started to collect dust. This class now gives me more motivation to learn how to play this instrument again. However, music is not my strong suit, but I am willing to try my best and hopefully be able to strum a tune or two.
MY GAME PLAN:
STEP 1: Reunite with my ukulele. Its been awhile and we need to get reacquainted.
STEP 2: Tune my ukulele. I already have two tuner apps on my phone, Simple Ukulele Tuner and Tunefor Ukulele tuner free. I found both of these to be great apps for a beginner.
STEP 3: YOUTUBE. This is going to be my main source of learning while teaching myself how to play. I am going to follow channels like The Ukulele Teacher.
STEP 4: Strumming. This is a key element of playing the ukulele and I am going to focus on getting a proper technique going.
STEP 5: Chords. This one is going to be tricky. Now to learn some basic chords. Eventually I will focus on the chords needed for step 7.
STEP 6: Pick a song. Here I will choose a song that will be my main focus for the rest of the project.
STEP 7: Play a song. My main goal here is to play *most of* the chosen song from above.
STEP 8: Be a pro ukulele star.
