    Default Singing and playing??

    I need some tips, I can play the tune but the minute I try to sing along I mess up my strum. I really need to sing along to get the tempo other wise I just sound so monotonous. I am a horrible singer but I feel like I need to sing to be a better player. I did search the forum but didn't find advice and yet I feel sure I read something about this since I joined in March. Thank you

    Nana ka maka; ho`olohe ka pepeiao;
    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.

    Thanks I knew I had seen it here, and I searched the forum. I never seem to find anything thru the search forum, I must not use the correct words.

    It's not you. The UU forum search function can be a bit cranky. You can search the forum using Google, just add "site:ukuleleunderground.com" (without the quotes) after your search terms in Google, and it will find forum posts for you.
    Live long, prosper, and play your ukulele.

    Just takes a lot of practice. Everyone starts out the same way. Just make sure you can PLAY the song without even thinking of what your hands are doing. Then slowly add in the words. Once you get it down 1 time, it gets pretty easy.

    I'm not a Dude. I am an old lady trying to learn the ukulele. Spud is my dogs name. Every one else's posts were helpful but with yours I choose to laugh. I will tell you a secret....... There is Magic, you might not be taking the time to notice it.

    Thanks for the encouragement I really thought maybe my brain couldn't learn any more multitasking.

    dude wasn't meant as a male moniker. sorto like "hey guys" is considered neutral. my post not helpful because the language put you off? the context basically says practice and that ain't helpful? only dudes hustle chicks? geez.
