As you know, I play the ukulele. Wait! I don’t just play it — I love it!
One of the best things about playing the ukulele is that it is easy to sing along to. That means that writing songs doesn’t take years of music education — learn a couple chords and away you go! It’s quick to learn, it’s fun to play, and it sounds great!
In Rainbow Pals Episode 2: In Search of the Blue Kiele, I sang a song called “Happiness.” It’s a cheerful song, all about simplicity and enjoying every day. Perfect for the ukulele, don’t you think?
Of course, The Rainbow Pals aren’t the only ones writing songs and posting them to YouTube. There’s a Ukulele Revolution going on out there! People from all over the world record videos in their living rooms, on the beach, in their classrooms, and everyone one of them wields a mighty ukulele.
