Having been captured by the idea of learning to play the ukulele while vacationing in Hawaii, I brought a nice instrument home – with no idea how to get started or progress. Then a friend recommended that I check out your website, and I recognized immediately that Ukulele Underground is exactly what was needed!
My name is Francesca Biagi and I live in Rome, Italy. I am a jazz vocalist, and I started to play the ukulele a few years ago, inspired by the great musicians of the 1920’s and 1930’s. I found the UU on YouTube, the “Uke Minutes” by Aldrine Guerrero. I then subscribed to UU, because Aldrine’s teaching was easy to understand.
I just wanted to say “THANK YOU AND MAHALO” for all you folks have provided me in my efforts to play the uke! You have been VERY instrumental (pun intended) in helping me progress my skills to the point where I feel comfortable picking up my uke and strumming (or finger picking) along with numerous songs.
