i was thinking to myself that there are quite a few questions regularly about music theory from people just now starting with their first instrument ever. and usually, the discussion turns into a lesson in music theory that only the contributors have a clue about. to the person that asked the question in the first place, i could only imagine (like when i was first teaching myself music theory) how greek it all looks.
so i was thinking of doing a sticky series of music theory as it applies to ukulele, using layman's terms. im basically taking my experience with teaching children guitar, and getting them to understand it, and applying it to ukulele.
dont worry im going to go real slow. im going to surpass the whole how-to-tune and how-to-hold etc stuff. thats all elementary. im just going to make an attempt at clarifying some of the basic theory as it applies to ukulele and simplify the explanation as much as possible.
i am also going to lock the thread. i realize there are soooo many people here that have music theory coursing through their veins. and im sure the majority of those people understand it better than i do. but it is in that understanding that sometimes makes it difficult for your everyday joe to understand what youre saying in the first place. so as i know many of you may have some great suggestions on how to teach others, im going to try my way at teaching so that they can some day come to you guys for the finer aspects later one... when they can understand it hahaha. i mean this in no offense to any of you... but nobody likes to have more than one boss... how frustrating you think it is when you have too many teachers? hahaha.
