It's a Ukelele, just in case anyone was wondering.
My sister plays so will be helping me along with it. And it is a great instrument for car trips, camping trips etc, because it's so small and you can sing along and it's not very expensive so I wouldn't be too worried about it getting damaged.
It's much easier on your fingers than guitar so that's a bonus for me. Take it from a person who can play maybe one song on the guitar before her fingers give out.
The colour might not be everyone's piece of cake (it took me a while to convince my sister) but I quite like it. And especially because it has a matt finish, rather than shiny. I think it looks kind of vintage...
Anyways, just thought I would share.
That looks awesome, Kiara! I do agree with the colour making it look like vintage, I dunno how that works but it does look like vintage. Before the violin, I considered on buying a ukulele. I forgot how the violin changed my mind, but the thing that I like about the ukulele is that it's very small and thus, portable. The violin is small as well, that's probably one of the reason why I liked the violin.
cheers! - ⁰ℨ
I love your new friend. The color is beautiful. I too, like the shark. I hope you get to strum and sing along while going down the road.
Are you familiar with that lil gal.. Emi Sunshine. She plays and sings her lil heart out.
I hope you share some tunes with us. I have wanted to have an learn on one for a long time. I always get the roll eyes from the peanut gallery.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
I thought it was pretty cool too @DanielB, the shark shaped bridge was certainly a bonus.
@ozmous glad you agree that it looks vintage you could learn Uke still, I bought mine fairly cheaply, I guess it wouldn't be too different over there...
@Uzi thanks, I like it.
@coolpinkone I am sure it will get played a lot. I hadn't seen that girl Emi Sunshine, she sure can play and sing! Maybe one day I will share something, no promises though. Nothing wrong with learning now, never too late. I'm sure you'd do fine.
How cool! I love the color! I have a few decorating accents around my home in that color!!
Two of my favorites!!
