Default Re: I want to learn to play the Ukulele

Well my left wrist is still in a lot of pain.

So I'm still unable to practice the ukulele. 2 months without any practice. Basically I'm going to have to start over from the beginning. Not happy about any of this.

On the bright side I have a cheap ($39) ukulele kit that I've started to build. I have no pretense that it will play well. I know its just plywood junk with cheap parts. But it is giving me something to do that helps hold my interest in the instrument while I am unable to actually play.

My goal is to have a good looking piece of cheap wall art that is potentially playable, but I'm not holding out much hope on it holding a tune or having good tone. Like I said, its cheap but if it ends up looking good I'll be happy.

If it makes you feel any better Bob, I haven't touched a piano or anything of the sort in years, but know I can still do it.
Kinda like riding a bike.

Same for a guitar, the notes are all there, albeit in my head.
I can touch any surface and play Fur Elise, for example, and hear it.
yup!
