There are four of us at the art group that have started to learn how to the ukulele, I know its not the kind of thing one would expect to hear connected with the words art group, but we roll different than most.
This week was the second half hour we have had and we can now all pretty much strum together, at the same beat. Instead of strum, strum, strum…..Change finger placement for G, strum, strum strum….Change finger placement to C, strum…….
So by the time we changed on a four beat, we only strummed three times, if we were lucky, and not at the same time as everyone else.
It has helped that we are all complete and utter beginners with a brain that completes one task at a time. Hence the pause. This meant that we could laugh at the mistakes, not get embarrassed by them. A huge difference to the learning curve.
Thankfully I do not have to sing on top of the playing as well.
