Because I like to sing with my kids and “a piano won’t fit in my house”.
And “guitar is too hard”.
Four strings seems about my speed.
So I spent $40 on a Uke, a tuner, and a book.
I figure for $40 there was not too much lost if I never learned to play and it just became a paper weight.
But it’s not. (a paperweight).
It’s become this fun thing I do at night when the kids are sleeping. And on the weekends when the kids are awake.
And I am getting “not bad” at it.
And it’s fun. And it makes me feel good.
