Ukulele Tuner

I want to learn to play the ukulele. Where do I start?

There are so many different types of ukulele...how do I choose?

Is it easy to learn?

Any idea on where I can get my hands on some lessons online?

k thx bye!

Sisterhaze108,
A pretty common question.
http://ukulelehunt.com/ is only one of many sites with ukulele info.
Start with a decent ukulele. Not some cheapo plastic thing. And DON"T get one with peg tuners. It doesn't have to be an expensive KOA Hawaiian ukulele for starting. But it should be a good one. And have gear tuners like those on a guitar. Gear tuners are easier for a beginner than peg tuners when it comes to tuning. I recommend the Lanikai LU-21C http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=ukulele&st= This is a concert size ukulele which means it's a little larger than the soprano. It gives off a fuller tone and is easier to chord b/c the frets are wider apart. It's an excellent ukulele for $80. There's a $50 soprano LU-21 (smallest of ukuleles) that'll work also.
Tuning:
Be sure your ukulele has C tuning. Most music you find will be writtien for C tuned ukuleles. The strings should be GCEA looking at it from your chin to your knees when you hold it. Here's an online tuner. http://www.get-tuned.com/ukulele_tuner.php You should get yourself an electronic tuner. I recommend the Cherub WS-550U.
Chords:

http://www.kunisan.jp/ukulele/eindex.html This one has sound.
Lessons/songs:
http://www.doctoruke.com/songs.html Access "BEGINNER" and there's simple lessons there.
There's free lessons on Youtube.
Also Ukulele Hunt will help you.
There's all kinds of info on the web. All you have to do is search.
See if there's a ukulele club in your area. Lot's of fun learning and playing with others. I teach through the Parks & Rec. Dept. in our town.
Have fun,
