    Default New Player!

    Hey!

    I'm Kris. I'm currently learning the ukulele and the mandolin, but have found myself playing the uke a little more due to it being easier on the fingers (still trying to build calluses). So far, I've just been playing a lot of songs using minimum amount of chords. I will say that coming from playing guitar first, I really love how easy playing F chords is on the uke.

    Hi Kris. Welcome to the forum.

    F chords are easier, but the E chord 1402 is difficult. Many of us use a 4442 or 9877 E chord. (I'm not a guitar player. But it did try to play guitar many years ago.)

    Enjoy your instruments.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Yeah, I think I've been using the 4442 E chord as well. I'll have to try the 1402 version and see how it feels.
