I am not a beginner but a beginner musician who has always loved and enjoyed a good ukulele. What I am saying is, once you learn how to string on a guitar, you can string a ukulele.
What’s something you’ll probably have a hard time learning to string?
I am very comfortable with stringing on the ukulele and want to get very comfortable with stringing a guitar. I like the idea of keeping the strings short so that you can play them in tempo, without the need to tie on your instrument.
