Welcome to our website – All about the Ukulele!

This page, Basic Ukulele/About, has a list of all the articles below.

First of all, the Ukulele is the instrument for everybody, and this website is especially relevant if you want to learn about it, or already know and love it. It is the same if you are young or old, left or right-handed – it does not matter.

Many people starts probably with a cheap standard (soprano) Ukulele. And if you do, we promise you that you after a while will want to try out other qualities and sizes. So, this is also an instrument for poor and rich, and it is difficult for non-experts to see if you in fact have a cheap Ukulele or not.

Above all, everyone can have a lot of fun with this small four string instrument. Because it just has four strings it is also relatively easy to learn to play, compared to a guitar. With these words it doesn’t mean that it is a toy instrument. Far off. To be really good you have to practice a lot, but you can play easy songs for yourself, or your family and friends, without a lot of struggling.

When you can manage to play some chords and progressions, you will as a result not be able to put it away.

We love it, and we hope you also do.

We will provide you with the best information related to it and most of all as informative as possible. In our posts/articles (see below) you will probably get a lot of tips about this wonderful instrument, in addition to how to play it. We have also some links to good sites for helping you out.

Furthermore, this site is not just for beginners. Others can also learn a lot from this website.

The best thing about www.basicukulele.com is that we do not have our own YouTube channel, internet courses or shop. Because of that we can show you and guide you to all kinds of good stuff and videos from the internet from several experts, and not be tied up with just our own.
