    Default Hello from Helsinki!

    Hi all!

    I'm a baby ukuleleist from Finland. I have been practicing for about a month now with no prior musical knowledge.

    It all started when somebody brought up Amanda Palmer's Ukulele anthem, and the lyrics inspired me to get one.

    I grabbed a random cheap uke purely based on looks from the nearest music store and expected to learn three chords and nothing more. But little did I know! I'm now in love with the instrument and motivated to learn more. Even the E-chord.

    I recently upgraded to lovely Ohana SK-25 and I think it's going to serve me well for a while. Though I'm probably developing UAS as I find myself browsing pineapple ukes almost daily.

    This forum has been a great help in the start of my ukulele journey, thanks!

    Welcome to UU, Smariat!

    I think you have caught the ukulele bug. There's no vaccine, but it usually isn't life threatening.

    Welcome to the UU Forum! You have started on a fun journey. Enjoy your explorations.
    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.

    Haha, still too cold and grey for my liking!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome
    Imagine if John Lennon had composed "Imagine" on the ukulele
    Maybe folks would have more clearly got the message
