It's All About Songs

Playing a musical instrument is all about playing songs, whether they're your own songs or someone else's song. The late jazz guitarist Joe Pass once said, “Learn melodies - nobody goes around whistling chord progressions.

Learning songs on a relatively easy to play instrument like ukulele is a lot of fun. The ukulele is the social instrument of the new millennium.
