I first learned to play the ukulele last February, thanks to my friend Jenny who invited me to Kape at Ukulele which happens every Wednesday night at Four Strings in Cubao Expo. The place was packed with musicians when I arrived. All of them were very accommodating and patient as they taught us how to play the ukulele. Yay for free workshops! I didn’t mind that the strumming ruined the fresh manicure on my fingernails! Haha!
We, the newbies, learned two songs that night: Champagne Supernova by Oasis and I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. The strumming and chords for both songs were simple and easy to learn. My background in playing the guitar helped a lot although I must admit I struggled a bit because ukulele chords and guitar chords are different from each other.
Two weeks after, I received my first ukulele (thanks Jenny ^_^). I immediately looked for chords of songs I wanted to play and made covers of the easy ones. Sharing with you my cover of Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. Hope you like it. 😉
