This is Grace from Hawaii. I am excited to be here to learn.
I have a soprano flea that I bought second hand on craigslist. I love its unique shape but feel it might be a bit too small to my liking. Then I saw Andrew’s youtube video on the $50 makala vs $5,000 martin. Yea, if I stay motivated to play, I might award myself a concert uke down the road, but for now, let’s work on this month’s challenge – I wonder if Andrew will consider a “before beginner” level song next month 🙂
Welcome @gmflin8, my first uke was a pineapple soprano. As you’re already thinking, after a couple months of playing and knowing I’d stick with it, I decided to upgrade to a concert. I’ve found it much more comfortable for regular playing. I now like to bring my soprano on trips to the beach and such. As you get more into the lessons and if you decide on a concert, you can also have one of them strung with a low G so you can have greater range for some of the song lessons.
hello grace, i have a soprano flea too! I think that you will like the sound of it on many songs that you try. if you want to find a low g uke string, you should go online to look on amazon.com or dunkleymusic.com.
