Reasons Not to Play the ‘Ukulele

Yesterday I posted “reasons to play the ‘ukulele”. Today I thought it would be fun to post “reasons not to play the ‘ukulele”. Some of these might be legitimate reasons, but many are just poking fun. I love playing the ’ukulele, but it’s hard not to make fun of it sometimes.

  • Many people don’t appreciate the instrument and will give you the “’ukulele? Ha!” look
  • You like tiny Tim
  • Cheap ‘ukuleles are usually not made in the USA
  • You only like bass notes
  • It’s a pain in the butt to amplify
  • You can’t stand the sound
  • Good strings are expensive
  • You want to sound like [name of ‘ukulele artist]
  • You don’t have any aloha
  • You have fat fingers (the frets on an ‘ukulele are small) – maybe you should try the bass
