Below is a somewhat mish-mash compilation of music tidbits, cool advice, and a list of some noteworthy songs. Enjoy!
First, about Ukuleles, have any of you listening right now has ever had the chance to hear the pleasant strums off the uke? They are perfectly delightful little instruments, I myself know about 20 chords and like thrumming out folk tunes. One of the most agreeable reasons to consider picking up one and playing it immediately, there really is no wrong way to strum! Whether a person uses their thumb, index finger, or a (felt covered) pic, the Ukulele is a instrument for you!
Continuing on, I will discuss something about Seventh chords. I am not an expert on them, (insert uncertainty pun here) but anyone who has ever played them has perceived something, right? They could almost be named the “song is not over yet, keep playing” chord or the “I have a problem to be solved” chord. Seventh chords are useful though, they add depth to a song, so any piece of complicated music you hear out there, there is probably a dominant seventh chord thrown in.
I know nothing about Mandolins, the subject is completely eluding me! :)
Just kidding! Two years ago I received a wonderful little instrument, it has such a distinct plucking twang, and a kind-hearted pitch, it is hard to put down. I mostly enjoy playing folk songs, and sheet music my cousins send me, who as you know, all play Banjo, and I enjoy listening to my uncle play. (He is a professional in almost every string instrument.)
Now lastly, I promised a list of some songs:
Dooley (by the Dillards)
Hey Jude (by the Beatles)
The Marine hymn
