I’m self taught on the piano (as you can probably tell) and I’d like to learn the guitar and ukulele. Not sure it’s still in demand enough to justify buying a Uke so I thought I’d ask those that play. Is it a decent place to start and then transition to an acoustic gutar later? Am I wasting my time? Obviously I want to write tracks that sell here with the Uke but I fear (kinda hope) the demand for Uke tracks is over.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
EDIT: I don’t think I explained it well enough. I really want to learn guitar but thought the Ukulele would be an easy start for a beginner and I can make money with it also while preparing for the upgrade.
As a guitar player I will tell you that Ukulele is much MUCH easier to play, and in a way I think it is a good instrument to start on if you are planning on playing a guitar in future. The strings do not hurt your fingers, which is a major and common complaint when playing a guitar as a beginner. But the way you hold chords is pretty much the same. I don’t know how to explain it. The tuning is different of course, lol and the chords are gonna be different, but the finger placement on the fret board is the same. So if you put so and so fingers on so and so frets, it does not mean that a chord is gonna lets say D on a ukulele and D on a guitar, but it will make a sound and it will make a chord! lol Just buy it and see for your self, uku is an ez instrument to play if you are not going to play anything, but AJ stuff on it.
It’s drag and drop in my DAW too..
Thanks for the link, sounds like the items that sell get trending-ness, which they do not need because they already sell. Or maybe I am just not getting something
I see some items on the first page are trending, why making them trend if they are already on the first page? How does it work anyway?
... well as a child i really wanted to be an Astronaut (because of the adventure) or a Police officer (because of helping people) ...
... later i realized i´m really scared of heights and weapons so i became a musician
How about your dreams?CHA!
I always wanted to make music/ambient sounds for video games.
But I guess I am not there yet.
