Soprano Ukulele Pros and Cons

 

PROS

  • The “original” ukulele – a more classic sound than other sizes, which appeared more recently
  • Light, small and portable – easy to own, carry and bring along
  • Perfect for kids or those, like President Trump, who have smaller hands

CONS

  • If you have large, giant or scissor (looking at you, Edward) hands – perhaps another size would be more appropriate
  • If you prefer a “bigger” and more resonant sound
  • If you’re a learner or beginner, the concert size may be easier to work with.

 

Soprano ukuleles are the only choice for traditionalists.  The offer a “real” ukulele sound, and are the smallest of the four ukulele sizes.   I can understand what they are on about.  However, rather like the people who prefer to drive “stick” rather than an auto in their cars, they are a dying breed.  For most people, the other sizes are just fine.  Don’t be a hater, let’s all just try to get along, shall we?

In any case, owning a soprano ukulele will ensure no-one laughs at you or dances around you yelling “death to all concert, tenor and baritone ukulele owners!” *Please note, this has never happened*.  On the contrary, the ukulele community is an unusually friendly and welcoming bunch.

Try saying that about your average violinist association… No offense intended but you guys can get pretty serious and frowny at times. x

Best Ukulele Strap for 2017

Before we talk about finding the best ukulele strap for your uke, let’s talk about if standing while performing first.

Many people play their ukulele while standing as much as they do while sitting, especially while performing for others. I’m sure you’ve seen guitar players play their instruments with a strap that holds the guitar to their body while they play – can ukulele players do the same?

Traditionally, when the ukulele is played standing up it is done so without a strap. The ukulele is light enough and small enough that the performer can “trap” the body of the ukulele against themselves with their strumming forearm, keeping the instrument upright.

The hand that’s fingering notes/chords shouldn’t really be used to hold the ukulele up. If you do, you will have a hard time moving between notes and chords fluidly.

When you’re playing a musical instrument, it’s vital that it’s tuned properly in order to get the proper sound you’re after.

Correct tuning is especially important for beginner ukulele players who aren’t familiar with the sound of a ukulele and telling if it’s out of tune or not. If the ukulele is out of tune, you’ll associate the wrong sounds with their corresponding notes and chords which will make learning much more difficult.

A proper tuning will also give your instrument the best sound possible which is why you should also check the tuning on your strings before you start playing.
