      Today in the mail, I received my first uke, a Savannah soprano, yellow in cover. Yes, it is a cheap piece of instrument, but for a beginner, I think it shall suffice.

      I'm realizing several things:
      1. My fingers hurt like a ***** because I don't have callouses built up.
      2. The uke is one addictive instrument.
      3. I've almost learned "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in 3 hours.
      4. I need to give up my job and busk on the streets.

      Any suggestions as to uke tips, songs to learn that are easy for a beginner?

      I'm aiming to learn "Ram On" next because, well, come on. It's required of all Paul fans who own ukes.

        Here's a video I found of a lesson for Ram On...I also like playing Something like Paul does

        Good luck and have fun

            Good luck. It's a pretty easy song to learn with minimal finger movemnts (giggity) and you'll be playing it in no time!

            Post a video when you've learnt it ;)
