Welcome to our website – All about the Ukulele!

This page, Basic Ukulele/About, lists all the articles below.

First, the Ukulele is the instrument for everyone, and this website is especially relevant if you want to learn about it, or already know and love this little instrument. It’s the same if you’re young or old, left-handed or right-handed – it doesn’t matter.

Many people probably start with a cheap standard (soprano) Ukulele. And if you do, we promise you that after a while you’ll want to try out other qualities and sizes. So this is also an instrument for the poor and the rich, and it’s hard for non-experts to tell if you actually have a cheap ukulele or not.

Above all, everyone can have a lot of fun with this little four-string instrument.

Because it only has four strings, it is also relatively easy to learn to play compared to a guitar. In these words, it does not mean that it is a toy instrument. Far away. To get really good, you have to practice a lot, but you can play simple songs for yourself, or your family and friends, without too much effort.

As a result, once you manage to play some chords and progressions, you won’t be able to put it down.

We love it and we hope you do too.

Basic Ukulele will provide you with the best information related to the ukulele and above all, as informative as possible. In our posts/articles (see below) you will certainly get many tips about this wonderful instrument, as well as how to play it. We also have some links to good sites to help you.

Also, this site is not just for beginners. Others can also learn a lot here.


Why is Basic Ukulele the best site to find Ukulele information?

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

We believe this is the absolute best thing about our website – this freedom to provide you with the best possible information related to the Ukulele.

By using Basic Ukulele, you don’t have to waste a lot of time searching online for videos and information about the ukulele. We have done this work for you. This website is like a hub for useful information.

On the other hand, we have some ads and affiliate partners to fund the costs of having this site. We hope you understand, and use them so that we can keep this page, the Facebook page and the Facebook group open.

To learn how to play the ukulele, you should watch some videos and we have tried to pick some of the best for you. When we discover a new or better video, or link, we update the posts. If you have a suggestion for us, please use our Facebook group, Ukulele Lovers, or our contact form.

The name of the sites, or experts, we have as links are not always mentioned in our text, but you can see it when you follow our links.

The Basic Ukulele Team sincerely hopes that our website will inspire you to play this fun instrument as well as learn a lot about it!
