Music has been a hobby of mine for many years - and one that I somehow manage to remain pretty bad at somehow (that takes a certain skill all it’s own). Though I guess it helps keep me humble and I have “beginner’s mind” therefore lots of possibilities as Shunryu Suzuki might say.
I’ve gotten a little out of the ukulele habit these days as I’ve been playing the electric guitar lately
But I always feel like the uke is sort of like “tenkara guitar” - much easier to get the hang of with just the 4 strings. Though in the hands of a skilled player it can be magnificent (like tenkara)
I am not a skilled player (and an even worse singer)
but I’m not too shy about the fact that I’m not very good and don’t hesitate to inflict it on people
I used to participate in these weekly fun contests at Ukulele Underground forum where you’d post a video on a theme - it was not really about wining for those that play - just a fun reason to learn a song and make video.
Here’s of the better ones that I did.
Any other musicians out there - good or bad (like me) ?
