Jazzy Snazzy Musical Pizzazz

Are you bored with the plain look of your stringed instrument?  Why not jazz it up and make it your own snazzy piece?  We drew our inspiration from the Mandy Harvey Learn to Play Signature Series Ukulele from Kala brand.  Start this do it yourself project with a nice sounding yet inexpensive ukulele or instrument of your choice and you can create your own personalized version at a fraction of the price. 

One of a Kind Ukulele or Guitar

Mitchell MU40C

We used a Mitchell concert sized ukulele for this project. The model number is MU40C. It is easy to play right out of the box. A lot of schools buy Mitchell products to teach kids so you know they have to be durable. It stays in tune and has a nice sound. Check out the sound in this video and note I’d only been playing for a couple of months.

Selecting a Ukulele, Making Music Journey Continues

   Since ukulele’s are relatively inexpensive, they are a great instrument to start out with. We advise not going with the cheapest one available.

   Tuning and staying in tune is often a big issue. It stands to reason that the cheaper the lower the quality of the tuning mechanism. Nothing is more frustrating than having you chords sounding off key. You also want a good sound quality and that comes from better build instruments made with quality materials and craftsmanship. Beginners often give up thinking that they just can’t do it when in fact it is a sound quality issue with the uke itself.

   Next consideration is the size.

Come Along on our NEW Musical Journey

    Less than 2 months ago I started attending a weekly group of people interested in playing ukulele I had zero experience. Check out this video to see how far I have come in this short amount of time.



    I want to share this journey with you and show you how you can learn as well even if you have never played anything before. I will share all the things I have learned along the way including tips that most others don’t share.

    Why? I keep reading that learning new things is great for keeping your mind sharp ♯ and active. Think of it as exercise for your brain. It is said that learning to play music makes new connections in the brain’s communications system. Ukuleles can be quite inexpensive making them a great place to start.

Thank you for Learning with us!❤️
