    Admittedly, it's been a few days since I have last tried practicing Ukulele.

    However the last time, I was having problems just getting my fingers in the correct position to form chords. It's as if...

    I wish this resulted in electrocution

    I often say something along the lines of "as a species, we are still pretty stupid" when talking about false beliefs, misconceptions, bad ideas, etc.

    Thanks,

    I found another app, specifically for Ukes.

    I got them all tuned, but it gets out of tune fast, I guess like the booklet says, the strings need some time to stretch.

    Yeah seems you are right, unfortunately seeing how many people do it, it is human nature.

    Unfortunately there's lots of bad things, like violence for example that are also part of human nature.
