Hi Taimane. Newbie player here. I got my first uke at Christmas but started playing about 4/5 months ago. I’m now looking to upgrade my uke. Aside from price and size, what do you look for in a ukelele? There are so many brands/types it would be interesting to know the key things you should consider. Thanks 😁 KayOctober 20, 2017 at 1:50 pm #14058vicentasticoParticipant
In your opinion, what makes a song fun to play?October 20, 2017 at 1:50 pm #14059joshwahParticipant
How do you make playing more interesting/Spicy? I found myself stuck repeating the same chords with the same rhythm. And picking the same strings along with the same rhythm for a long time now. Has this ever happened to you while playing?

Where is your dream place to play ukulele?October 20, 2017 at 1:52 pm #14062avaod03Participant
Do you like/would you recommend low G tuning? I have recently gotten a concert ukulele and know it’s used on concerts and tenors etc. (have a good concert!)October 20, 2017 at 1:53 pm #14064strumsillyParticipant
I was honored to see you at the Strummin Man uke festival in Panama city. Awesome show. do you do anything special to your nails as your strumming style can be vigorous and when I strum hard I end up damaging my cuticle and or completely wear my nail out. Looked like you sometime played with a pic ? yes?October 20, 2017 at 2:03 pm #14067egomaniacParticipant
First and foremost, huge mahalos for the music you share with the world!
I believe my question is music related with a twist. Here it goes…
If you could surf as good as you play ukulele,
would you rather be a pro surfer or stay a professional musician or both? 😎😇.

Hi Taimane. You are amazing. Thanks for doing this. Here is my question. There are so many ukulele tutorials on the internet now, such that it becomes confusing and overwhelming to know what to focus on. What are your suggestions to help a person find a learning pathway that makes sense?October 20, 2017 at 2:11 pm #14070kowinaParticipant
What exercise would you recommend to learn to strum so fast?October 20, 2017 at 2:15 pm #14071aqiel19Participant
For beginners what finger picking song do you recommend and what strings did you use + is it okay if I don’t use my fingernails to play the ukulele because its a rule in my house to have short fingernails
Love your performance❤❤October 20, 2017 at 2:19 pm #14072debber90Participant
HI, I’m wondering how you make a song performance ready. I get stuck at a almost ready spot and don’t know how to move past that place…thanks so much
