Although I am not very skilled, I have played the guitar for years. Being in my early 50’s I was attracted to the ukulele because it is much easier to learn than the guitar. How? It has only 4 strings and a shorter fretboard so there are much fewer notes to master. Many people use the ‘High G’ tuning and only play a solo line on the bottom 3 strings SO this makes it half as many strings as the guitar. One reason that I am interested in learning and even mastering the ukulele is that I hope to stimulate the brain and to fend off ‘brain decay’.
