Buy a great ukulele

If you are just starting out, or are looking for a new ukulele, I have come across a great one. The Hamano H100 Vintage. It is an ukulele that is designed after the old Martin ukuleles, which are thought by many to some of the best ever made. It's a solid wood ukulele for a great price that competes with ukuleles in higher price brackets.

Luckily, there are good inexpensive ukuleles. Here are two of my favorite ukulele for beginners. They are inexpensive and sound quite impressive for the price.

Matching your ukulele to your singing

Learning to play chords on the ukulele is actually not that difficult. Yes, some of them require a weird hand position that takes time to get used to, but overall it's not to difficult. 

The thing I do have difficult with is keeping a beat when I try to sing along. I usually try to speed up one to meet the other. 

Luckily I have found a solution to this problem.

1. Lots and lots of practice (trust me you will eventually get it.

2. Play with someone else or play a long with a recording. It really helps.
