I come here with absolutely no musical knowledge. I played the guitar for about a year when I was younger but I think it's safe to assume that I remember nothing from that
I'm currently doing a year abroad from uni and I've wanted to pick up a ukulele for a while so thought now would be a good time. I live in a flat and I'm out pretty much 8am-6pm on weekdays which means that I can't really order anything online because I won't be in to receive it, meaning I'm going to have to settle for whatever I can get in my local music store
So I popped in the other day to have a look around and now I need help making a decision
From looking at youtube videos, I like the sound of a concert ukulele and from holding one in the store I also prefer the size of it to a soprano. However, the cheapest one they had there was an Ibanez which was 100 euros. Having no musical knowledge and not being 100% that I'll actually enjoy it, I don't feel like spending that much.
So if I was to get a ukulele I would get a Stagg soprano which they have for 40 euros. However, they had the yamaha guitalele for 75 euros which really caught my eye.
I'd really love to get the guitalele, however from looking online I haven't been able to find much info about them and I'm worried that it would be too hard for me to self teach it? Would you go about learning it like you would a guitar and so use guitar websites to learn?
Maybe I should just get a ukulele for now and then maybe in the future look at getting a guitalele or a guitar.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. Looking to buy one of them early this week I think
