We all have other loves- if you read this blog, ukulele is one of them. And you probably have others. It may be a love for plants, books, creative crafts or collecting a certain thing, but they're there. So why not treat yourself by indulging (in a sensible way!) in one of them in a new way? Lets focus on the ukulele for the sake of this entry.
Now for some of you the first thing would be to buy a new uke- that one you've been wanting if you have the money for it. If shopping isn't on your mind, then lets look at other ways to deepen our relationship with this loveable instrument.
You could pursue a genre of music that you like but haven't attempted yet- like swing jazz, country, or bluegrass. With March coming, this is the perfect time to learn Irish/Celtic tunes on uke if that's your jam. I personally enjoy taking instruments out of their traditional genres and playing music on them normally not associated with the instrument.
Get a flexible schedule going on playing. I don't know about you, but sometimes the other things I have to do may take me away from playing uke for longer than I care to admit. By committing to play 3 days a week, for example, that leaves me free to choose which days and when. And for how long. Even 10 min is helpful. At night, keeping a uke by the bed is great for getting in a little just before bed playing.
You can take it with you- if you work with The Artists' Way by Julia Cameron, you could take your uke on an Artists Date. Just don't leave it in your car unattended. If part of your date is to stop in a diner, take the uke with you!
