Every year I look for a ‘thing’ I want to do, something to challenge myself, a class or skill I wish I learned as a kid. Over the years I’ve taken many classes; there’s improv (I failed), tap dancing (I dropped out), and stand-up (I did pack the house… with my family and friends).
This year I hope to learn how to play the ukulele. I’ve never played an instrument before and considering in lesson two I had to learn the difference between a note and I cord, I’d say I have plenty of work to do.
I figured I’d document my progress. Here’s my practice session, I’m working on c-major, f-major, and g-major.
And here I am trying to learn Jason Mraz’s, I’m Yours. I can’t even imagine trying to sing along, I’m so focused on where my fingers are supposed to be.
