Have you always wanted to play a musical instrument but never thought you could? Well, the ukulele is the perfect way to get off the sidelines to join in the fun! This friendly, encouraging lesson will help “listeners” become “players.” In minutes you’ll be singing out loud and strumming along on favorite traditional songs - even if you’ve never played a note before!
Kate and Steve, aka The Ukalaliens, have taught thousands of people to shed their inhibitions and start making music. They teach you everything you need to know to get started: How to hold your uke, tune it up, put your fingers on the strings and start playing your first chords. You’ll learn how to strum simple rhythms and even start some basic fingerpicking.
From the opening song, The More We Get Together, through You are My Sunshine, Home on the Range and I've been Working on the Railroad, Kate and Steve guide you through all the basics you’ll need to start making music on this wonderful little instrument.
"I have been watching your videos online through Homespun, and have really enjoyed learning the ukulele from you and Kate. It's been a great experience…. You guys have such a laid back style, I find it really easy to follow along and so relaxing. It's like spending the day with the folk singers I grew up listening to in Chicago. Only now I get to learn from them." - Julie Moos
