Dream List #34

My sweet friend Shayla saw written on my "Dream List" that I wanted to learn how to play the Ukulele, and she lent me hers for a couple of months last year so I could do just that.
This instrument is SO much fun to play, I love the fact that it is so little, and you can basically take it anywhere you want to go. 
Some of the chords are quite... complicated, but if you are content to play in one key, then it is an easy instrument to play. The strumming technique is very different from the guitar, which was a learning curve for me (my brain doesn't like to be retrained...), I wouldn't say that I mastered it by any means, but I could play a song or two.

I may be buying one of these someday, but for now I am content to stroke it off of my list. :)

Yay! I love this post! Well, I've loved all of them from Hello June, but being a music person, this one stands out. Hope to see some videos of it in the future.
