A recent obsession of mine has been playing my ukulele. Jenn got it for me about a year ago and I haven't really playing it at least at home in Vancouver. However while being unemployed in Singapore, I have been able to start consistently practicing. The inspiration to play everyday came from another amazing House of Ten entry (the link will take you right to the entry I am referring to). I discovered Jerry Sienfield's wonderful way of getting good at something: practice everyday and mark it on a calender.
I have wanted to play ukulele ever since I first step on Hawaiian soil back in 1997 for the first time. I fell in love with the chill, hang loose attitude that Hawaii encompasses. And the ukulele has always been a representation of that outlook.
I am proud to say that I still suck, but at least I don't suck as bad as when I first started! Improvement is the first step to being awesome!
Here is a video of a wonderful man playing a wonderful song on his ukulele:
Here is another wonder player of the ukulele:
She is actually playing for the Bushman Music Ukulele Video Contest, which anyone in the world can join. I hope to one be able to feel like I am good enough to enter this contest. Not win, oh no... just feel I am worthy of entering would be awesome!
P.S. I know my link colour sucks, but blogger design template is still not working yet so I am not able to change the colour, SORRY!
