If you play a string instrument and like any of these styles of music (Bluegrass, Old-Timey, Celtic, Gypsy-Jazz, etc.) you may like this Website – it offers free backing recordings for playing along with. You can slow down or speed them up.
There is also a section of common Chord Progressions to practice.
This is similar but a little less daunting. It includes the words, but you can’t slow down, etc. https://toneway.com/songs
I use Chrome browser on my laptop and my audio volumes were too soft and so I searched for a solution and found this.
It works great!
Ever seen ukuleles with beautiful flowers adorning the head? Where do people get those!?!
You are in luck! One Music School shares how to make them from inexpensive fake flowers.
Give it a try! https://youtu.be/US-g1dJq8_Q

If you don’t know Amahi ukuleles, please give me the pleasure to introduce you. Amahi has been making fine violins for years under the name Amati (with a ‘t’). They recently started making intentionally inexpensive ukuleles and I believe that they are a great contender! They now have a broad range of ukes from $50ish student ukuleles which are similar to Makala to $500ish models. I really like the quality of their intermediates ($150-$300ish). They also offer more expensive brands under separate brand names. They are located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Visit their Website and ‘like’ them on Facebook to learn more about them.
