Hope ukulele lovers everywhere had a Merry Christmas and strummed a few Christmas carols to warm your friends, family, loved ones.
Bringing music playing to any gathering can always cheer up the group. And if someone is a grinch, have them strum a “C” chord (the easiest chord to play) on a tuned ukulele. It can’t help but bring a smile of success as you tell them they are 1/3 way to playing a full Christmas carol (C, F, G7). But better — just strum. Your friends and family will sing. You will feel relaxed. It’s the ukulele spirit.
Keep you ukulele warm and active as you get ready for the New Year. I’ve just returned from cold North where it was fun to walk outside in 4 feet of snow. That’s only because I knew I was returning to the snow-free South. It was cold enough up there. Not the temperature for taking off your mitts and strumming outside. Minus-eight centigrade is neither strumming nor fingerpicking weather.
Best to all of you who received a ukulele for Christmas. Make your fingers dance on the strings this new year.
Keep your ukulele warm.
