    Question How often do you Practice??

    Ok, just want to get an idea..

    My fellow UU members, How often do you practise?
    Be in depth so i know where your coming from.
    How many hour a day? how many times a week?
    or is it when ever you have free time you would pick up the ukulele??

    for me..

    I work everyday from 12pm - 8pm

    After work i usually play for 1 hour.. Not learning nothing new but just revising what i know...

    Usually on the weekends, i try and learn new chords or maybe another section to a song..


    Cheers guys

    i work 4 ten hour shifts. toward the end of the day is when i am not all that busy. i usually bring my ukulele to work with me, and during the down times ill break it out and play. my patients seem to enjoy it.

    when i get home, i take the ukulele out of the case. so, since im holding her, i might as well play her. so i do. i will do this until something comes up, like food, friends call me to hang out, giant monster terrorizing the city... etc.

    sometimes i fall asleep with my uke hahaha. matter of fact, i am typing this in bed on my laptop and one of my ukes is right here next to me. ok get your heads out of the gutter. im not trying to make any lanikai sopranos. im just saying that i actually practice quite a lot.

    i still suck though. but im trying to change that. so far, all i have to show for it is a deformed fingernail from all the strumming i do.

    mannn Nuke, I've seen the videos that you put on. By the sounds of how much you practices and play, it really paid off. But with me, I play after work, But i feel as if im not getting better, Hearing others play and they are so good makes me think; ive played for like nearly a year how come Im not getting better? I get upset at this quite often..

    haha thanks, but keep in mind also that i have been playing guitar on and off for about 15 years. so a lot of that has transferred over.

    believe me, if i never got together with my friends to form a band, i wouldnt be nearly as determined to get better. i would still be determined... just not to the point where im sleeping with my ukes.

    i still say i have a long way to go. a lot to learn. i guess what im saying is, i dont want to just sleep with my ukuleles. i want to make love to them hahaha.

    as in dominator's siggie: Practice makes Perfect Practice

    you might not realize it, but the more you play, your fingers get a muscle memory. sooner or later you'll realize that you have gotten a lot better than what you were.

    im still not good. i hear a little bit of buzzing when i play because i dont press hard on the frets.

    while im at home, im always playing. maybe 3 hours every night. but i dont know how much of it is useful

    i feel im at a crossroads kinda, where any chord i can play, i can move quite fast around the fretboard. its just picking and soloing im quite slow and inaccurate at so thats what im working at.

    and for some reason, right now, im obsessed with canon in d - the tab'd version on dominators site. its a lot of fun! if only i had 3 mates with ukes.
