My experience with Ukulele Buddy
I had chance to try Ukulele Buddy online course. I’ve seen people play ukulele and I really like the sound and tones of the instrument. So I always wanted to play it. You see, I’ve been playing guitar for many years, so I thought it would be easy to just pick up play ukulele. But I find out it is completely different instrument. Sure, there are some similarity between guitar and ukulele, and it would be easier to switch over from guitar to ukulele then someone who never played instrument before. But I wanted to learn the instrument the right way.
Here is my video:
The course is designed for beginners who never played any instruments before. It walks you through every aspect of ukulele including how to hold ukulele, tuning, etc. All you have to do is buy ukulele for yourself and you are ready to learn.
But the course is not just exclusivity for the beginners. Some what experienced students can also get lot out of the course. The course touches many different topics, so you can jump to the part that you need the help the most.
I like the fact that most of the lesson are strumming techniques. I believe strumming is most difficult and most important part of playing ukulele, so the course spend quit of bit of time teaching you how to strum in many different musical styles.
At the end, the course teaches you the basics of ukulele so you can continue to learn and practice on your own. Best part of the course is that you learn the fundamentals techniques so you can look for your favorite song and play them.
