Ukulele Lilly, I can still manage my guitar, but I do find Ukulele easier these days. Some days, not very many though, I don't have the stamina or I'm uncomfortable with swollen glands and tense muscles - including even my fingers - and I can't hold anything up much. You do need a bit of finger strength. You can actually buy children's sized guitars which are not too much bigger than a ukulele so if you prefer the sound of guitar it may still be an easy option. Youtube has good basic Ukulele beginner lessons - my 6 year old just started with some presented by Madeline Pots www.madelinepots.com. They're obviously presented for children, but they're free so you have nothing to lose having a look anyway! I personally love ukulele - we're going to see The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain next Saturday. So rapt they're coming to my city. Is it ok to post a piece of theirs?
