My first song I learned was “can’t help falling in love with you” by the King on the Ukulele.
However its TOP cover which made the chords easier for me to learn. I haven’t played it for anyone but Eleanor. I spent yesterday just playing it over and over and over, occasionally switching it up to other songs but ultimately that is my song now. Each day I am practicing more and actually singing and I laugh at myself with how bad I am. Yet also slightly impress that I can do it. I realized that the songs on my list are a bit harder than I thought, but hell. I have only had this instrument for over a month now. I am more excited to start really branch out to a more jazzy tune of ” Lie vie en rose”. The chords are not bad from what I found on a phone app. I am starting to be able to put the music and words together, but still have horrible rhythm.
I even thought of a name for him. Aaron Roberts.
Its a combination of Middle names from 2 artist that I like that goes in with the present day and days of the past.
I’ll see if it sticks.
