Is Ukulele Easier to Learn Than Guitar?
Ukulele is like a small guitar with the exception of having 2 less strings than a normal sized guitar. A ukulele is maybe a good starting point for those who are beginner or maybe want to learn guitar but want to try out a smaller instrument first to see what it’s like to play a string instrument.
Of course, there’s only a certain amount of scales and chords you can play on a ukulele with it having only 4 strings and 12-15 frets, dependant on the size of ukulele you can get, which range from Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone, the number of frets can increase. Standard tuning starts from the bottom at G-C-E-A. A ukulele usually sounds quite high pitched and jangly. It is probably most well known for Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow or Vance Joy’s Riptide.
Chord shapes are a little easier than trying to work on a barre chord shape on a guitar, and also, a smaller fretboard makes transitions easier with frets, strings and chords being closer together. Although this may be difficult for people with bigger hands, so perhaps one of the bigger ukuleles or a guitar may be better suited. A ukulele also has softer nylon strings so it’s not as painful as normal guitar strings would be when playing barre chords, for example. It’s small compact size and lightness makes it so much easier to carry around and you also can learn to sightread ukulele music, but a lot of it can be taught by ear. To conclude, a ukulele is a good starting point for beginners to then maybe progress onto guitar.
