  1. It's too easy to love the ukulele. I love the sweet sound, and how versatile it is! It's my first real instrument and it brings me joy every time I think about it and play it. I have made many friends though playing too. What’s not to love!

  2. People always ask me why I prefer the uke over guitar, and I always respond with everything. Sure, the guitar has its pros, but I just love the uke's simplicity, portability, sound, and just about everything else. There's just so much packed into the little instrument.

  3. I love the ukulele because it is my musical 'voice'. No matter what chord I fret, I feel connected to it and satisfied. I'm awed with it's versatility as well as ease of play. It always makes me smile inside!

  4. Ukulele was my third instrument to learn and it still remains my favorite. I love how I can take it anywhere and spread the spirit of aloha. The sound produced is one that can not be replaced. I believe that ukulele is an addicting instrument. Ukulele single handedly rocks!

  5. Hey. I was diagnosed with a mild form of Tourette’s Syndrome when I was 8 years old in the second grade, and ever since then we have been looking for ways to combat the symptoms. I’ve found that playing music, specifically the ukulele, allows me to escape my disorder.

  6. It's pure Joy: Four Strings. Three chords, Two minutes to learn, One lifetime to master. :)

  7. Simply put, I love the ukulele because when it is in my hands, I hear only beautiful music, even If it is only noise to others. Those 4 strings make right everything that makes me feel the world might have done me wrong. It makes me feel joy.

  8. The Ukulele, while a very traditional Hawaiian instrument, is also resurging as a 'fresh' contender in modern music. I love the ukulele because of it's subtle versatility. While some other unconventional stringed instruments are locked in their niche, ukuleles do not oblige--Not only can I hear ukes on mainstream pop radio, but I can also find them in the underground indie clubs of America.

  9. I love the ukulele because you just can't cop an attitude with 2 feet of guitar in your hands.

  12. I love the Ukulele because its just a fantastic little underestimated instrument, and the ukulele comunity is so friendly and more than anything else it puts a smile on my face.

  13. I love the ukulele because, like the people who play it, it's so welcoming. So many instruments aren't fun to play until you become somewhat proficient. The ukulele was fun for me to play from the moment I picked it up. And ukulele players are so helpful and friendly.

  15. I love the ukulele because I find it's the proletariat of art. The ukulele brings so much joy to people's lives, and is the perfect vehicle for the most expressive form of art, allowing people to convey life, love, and death, and yet only costs the price of a lunch.

  16. I love the ukulele, because when I pick one up and people are near by, the expectation is very low. From that point I can always surprise and delight. However, when I pick up a guitar, people expect Jimmy Hendrix, so I can only disappoint.

  17. The first time I played an ukulele, I fell in love with it. It is an elegant instrument and one which is easy to play. However, one isn't limited to playing easy songs. I am continually amazed at what can be done with the ukulele. 50 words just isn't enough.

  18. I love the humble ukulele because it simply exudes happiness. I’m 6’5”, and just the sight of me playing my uke is a much-needed reminder to everyone (myself included) to not take themselves too seriously. Then of course there’s the beautiful music it’s capable of producing.

  19. Whilst I play my ukulele,
    I consider myself blessed.
    But I cannot describe my love,
    of this instrument from above,
    in fifty words or less.

    Mere words do not explain,
    my feelings deep inside.
    But my ukulele conveys,
    my emotion when I play,
    and my love for her cannot hide.

  20. A couple of Uke Haikus:

    The Ukulele -
    Once the sweet sound of islands,
    Now the world's love.

    Four strings of magic
    Paint a smile on all who hear
    The ukulele

  21. Music is the universal food for the soul - it connects everyone regardless of race, religion or beliefs. Ukuleles truly epitomises this fact by being suitable for age 3 to as old as 100! That's the truth behind the amazing 4 strings on a piece of wood.

  22. I've only been playing for a few months, and the ukulele has become my companion in those late nights when insomnia hits, and it's this happiness that gives me a new satisfaction I never had.

  23. I asked out my first girlfriend by playing her a song on the uke. That was the beginning of a great love between me and this great little piece of wood known as the ukulele. I get so much joy from playing and it reminds me of her every time.

  26. I've never felt so much calmness and joy in my life before I opened the package to see my beautiful Lanikai Lu-21c. Living with life-threatening mitochondrial disease is hard to endure through but with my uke I can play the pain away. My beautiful ukulele has changed my life immensely..

  28. uke-a three letter word for a package of joy. if you are playing one you can never frown. good enough for George Harrison. you only use four fingers to play so why have more strings than four? good things come in very,very small packages. nylon strings don't rust.
