Hi, I'm FriendlyFred and running this blog. I play 'em all from soprano to baritone, acoustic and electric. Yes, big hands can handle small instruments. Enjoy strumming around and have a good day !
” The 10 best ukulele sites for beginners ” chosen by the Southern Ukulele Store
The Southern Ukulele Store is a shop based in Southbourne, in the south west of England. They also sell the instruments online. Until now I never got in touch with them, but what I read on their homepage sounds quite good. Selected ukuleles, quality control and adjustment for each item isn't always available among music shops. You can even choose between different string actions. So e.g. if you want to play with a bottleneck on your uke you might pick the higher height action. The newbie might take the recommended setup by the staff. You also get advice about the strings, pickups and so on. From time to time they offer workshops. To get all the information please visit the Southern Ukulele Store's homepage. Just recently they selected " The 10 best ukulele sites for beginners ". And we're in it ! Hope that chick on the picture doesn't mug this way all the time. I think they made quite a good choice. Some of the chosen web sites are on our blogroll too. And we'll add some links in the future. Most of our ukulele playalongs are suitable for beginners. But some of the arrangements are quite tricky and rather for players with some experience such as Iris or Gangnam Style. Thanks to the people of The Southern Ukulele Store for including us on the list and all the best for the future. FriendlyFred
