Then after you have been playing the ukulele for a year and have built up some finger strength you can buy a
The uke in this message has a built in tuner. Yes there are lots of ukes with tuners built in. Do a search at Amazon for 'tenor ukulele with electronics' and pick the one you like the best and fits your budget. You have to be careful when looking at Amazon search results because there will be sponsored results might not have a tuner.Can you get ukuleles with auto tuners? I am so glad you posted this. I want to get one. Have tried for years to learn guitar and you are right...hurts too bad for me to commit!
Trust me, the ukulele is 100 times easier than the violin. You live 30 miles from me and if you want you can come by and get free lessons. Bring your hubby if you would be nervous. You also live ten miles from the Winter Park Public Library where we hold our meetups on the second Saturday of each month. You can come by and watch us if you don't have a uke and some one will lend you one or if you buy one bring it and we can get you started. The first Saturday in December we always participate in the Winter Park Christmas Parade.Peggyy said:I have asked for one for my birthday in november. Or maybe for Christmas! I like the one on Amazon. May get that one. It would be great to take along camping. To play inside the camper so I am not distubing the peace of course. I took violin lessons a few years back and the practicing was painful to the ears. Just ask my hubby. Lol i finally gave it up.

There are four basic sizes for ukuleles. Soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. Soprano is a very small uke that is what comes to mind when people think of ukuleles. Concert is slightly larger, tenor larger yet and baritone even larger. A baritone is actually a small guitar and not a uke as it is tuned like a guitar and not a uke. The proper size for you is the one that fits your hands the best. For most adults that would be a tenor. Best bet is to visit a Sam Ash or a Guitar Center in Orlando. Both have a collection of ukes on display and there is no problem playing any of them. A photo is worth a thousand words so here is a good photo.Peggyy said:Looks like they come in different sizes and tenor or soorano. Which is best for a beginner?
Go for it. Sounds like a blast. I have Rock Band Beatles and it is fantastic.cerd said:I, too, am interested in learning how to play guitar. I was considering buying Rocksmith to see if I can play it on my Surface Pro. Then I can learn anywhere in a fun way.
Rocksmith is a video game similar to Guitar Hero, but it uses any real guitar with a 1/4" audio jack. Supposedly, it adjusts to your skill level to improve how you play overall.
