  2. Finger-practicing is quite important for you to know: There are only a handful of people, who are comfortable with the ‘finger-patterns’ of stringed instruments, right from day 1. If you are finding it difficult to stretch and spread your fingers, keep practicing. Nobody has small or fat fingers to not play stringed instruments!

If you have friends, who know how to play this instrument, take their help or you can always take the help of professionals on internet. Either pay them to learn or take free lessons.

  4. Tune up your instrument to get the best sound out of its strings: Tuning is as important as playing Ukulele. Unless you know how to tune your instrument, you can never be good at playing it. Learn how to tune your Ukulele before playing your first chord!

  5. Learn the name of the strings: All the strings have different names; learn them to know which chords to play for which song. Even when you watch videos to learn this instrument, the first thing that everybody teaches you is the names of the strings.
