This video will help you to find an appropriate way to hold the instrument.
Key takeaways include:
- Uke up at a high angle: 45 degrees or more.
- Left Hand Position: Thumb in the middle of the neck, behind the 2nd fret.
- Right Hand Position: Strum in the middle of the string, which is NOT over the soundhole. The middle is roughly where the body meets the neck, sometimes higher up.
