An excellent option for a novice musician would be the choice of a musical instrument such as a ukulele. The instrument got its name in honor of the Hawaiian Islands. It is a fretless electric guitar, which you need to play on your lap.
The guitar has 4 strings, which are pressed to the fretboard using a metal cylinder. In most cases, there is a lack of frets, because the strings are very high. They are often replaced by markers.
The ukulele, made in a round shape, unlike the usual one, has special necks. They don’t allow fast play. Otherwise, the sound of such an instrument will be of poor quality.
For comfortable performance, it is not necessary to press the strings to the fret. The full sound of the notes is carried out by the musician using a metal slide designed to move along the strings. It also adjusts the sound and pitch of the instrument. However, with this approach, a number of possible chords become unavailable.
Predominantly Hawaiian-style steel model playing involves the use of a plastic pick. Its presence allows the player to control the selection of notes on the far lines.
