I decided “Happy Birthday” was the perfect song to turn my attention to first. Everyone knows it. I’ve been singing it all my life. How difficult could it be?!
I checked out a few videos on YouTube. The first couple didn’t sound remotely like the “Happy Birthday” song to me, but I did say before I do not have a musically-inclined ear. The finger-picking video tutorials made more sense, but surely those were too difficult for an absolute beginner like me?!
Ukulele Life Lessons:
- Simple and familiar is a good place to start
- A hint of difficulty can set the tone and make you appear more accomplished than you actually are 😉
- Just because you feel unappreciated doesn’t mean that there isn’t at least a glimmer of interest and admiration on the other side.
