I do not have the fingers to play a ukulele!


I might be a grade 8 pianist and I might have had lessons on countless other instruments like the trumpet, clarinet and violin but learning to play the ukulele is harder than I thought! My ’50 things to do before’ challenge is to ‘Learn to play something on the ukulele’ but, with a bit of Beatles influence, it’s now to ‘Learn to play ‘Something’ on the ukulele’!

So, I’ve mastered a few chords and, for others, I can see where my fingers are meant to go but how on earth do you actually move them in a split second?! I seem to simultaneously lack enough fingers to play the chords whilst having too many fingers that make it all rather cluttered…..and my fingers are fumbling over each other to get into position. But onwards and upwards, Sarah
