When boredom strikes, one of the things I usually do is drop by YouTube and stay there for sometime checking out interesting videos such as this adorable clip --- a kid singing I’m Yours while playing his ukulele. Well, yes… he somehow gets the melody with made up lyrics but admit it, you do find him cute nevertheless. By the way, do not forget those occasional winks!
When I was younger… like way way younger, I always wanted to learn how to play the ukulele. I saw a group of students playing the instrument in some sort of musical contest one afternoon and it was then that I get to notice for the first time how friendly to the ears the sound a ukulele makes. I asked my parents to buy ukuleles, two would be perfect. One for me and another one for my younger brother. Unfortunately, budget was tight during those times so I ended up joining the choir group instead, something that I did not regret for sure.
For me, ukulele is one of the jolly instruments there is. It is light and relaxing to hear. It is like the yoga of string instruments.
How about you? Do you play any string instruments? Have you tried strumming the ukulele? Like it or not?
