Finding a ukulele forum will make it possible for you to connect with other ukulele enthusiasts all across the world. Since the advent of the Internet, people who share interests and hobbies have been able to network and exchange information easier than ever before. While there are, and have been, plenty of people who are into ukuleles, finding a way to connect with other enthusiasts was a bit difficult in the past. One of the easiest ways to connect, however, is over a ukulele forum. These online message boards enable users to carry on conversations and, best of all, those conversations are archived so that the information communicated is not lost.
Ukulele Underground is one of the most popular forums on the Internet. It contains extensive information about buying ukuleles, getting started playing them as well as information that is more geared toward experienced, even professional, players. This forum is generally very lively. Those who come from other instruments will find other individuals who share the same history on this, and other, forums. There are also contacts, song tablatures and other information freely available on this site. Like most online forums, a membership is required to make posts or to reply to them, though one is not required to view most of the information on the page.
The Flea Market Music Bulletin Board is another popular ukulele forum. There are numerous topics to view on the pages included on this site. Like the Ukulele Underground, there are posts here that will appeal to both beginners and professionals. There are also long, ongoing conversations that offer significant depth regarding the topics discussed. Songwriting, performance, instrument modifications and other aspects of owning and playing a ukulele are widely-discussed on this forum. There is also a marketplace on this forum where ukulele enthusiasts can buy and sell items. Essentially, the flea market reference is entirely appropriate, as this site is good for finding bargains and having fun.
The Uke is yet another leading ukulele forum. The posts on this site are extensive where beginner information is concerned. There are also sound files—MP3s, mostly—of ukulele performances. Like the other forums, there is good information offered by experienced players to those who are just getting started. The Uke, like the other forums, requires a membership for visitors to post or reply, though most of the posts can be read by anyone who happens by the site. Sheet music and other resources are available at this site.
No matter which uke forum one chooses, make sure to read the posts and to get the feel of the site and, if it seems wrong, look elsewhere. The memberships to these sites are free, in the vast majority of cases, so there’s really no risk in signing up for a forum account and reading some posts and even replying, if one is so inclined. At the very least, a beginner can get good tips, some sheet music and tablature and some advice on how to play that music from some experienced hands. Like most other groups, ukulele players have made good use of the Internet.Return to Home Page
