I know of several people who play the uke and it's reported to be one of the easier instruments to learn how to play. I love its size and portability. So this compact instrument is a new hobby of mine when I'm just sitting on the couch relaxing from my day. It's also the perfect size for my tiny apartment.
My other musical endeavor is to learn the program Garage Band. I checked out Logic at first and then realized that was too daunting. I need to start with something easier and if it clicks with me, then I can move on to more complicated programs.
I want to make beats. I want to make sweet and simple little songs. Build from there and see what happens.
