    Ukuleles

    Originating in the late 19th century, the ukulele was created as a Hawaiian adaptation of several small guitar-like instruments that were introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese immigrants. With endorsement by King Kalākaua, the ukulele quickly became popular amongst the people of Hawaii and arrived in the United States in the early 1900s.

    Ukulele became popular during the Jazz Age of the 1920s and 30s, and found its way into genres such as country and old-time music. Maintaining a level of popularity over the next couple of decades, the ukulele truly became a mainstream instrument during the 1960s thanks to artists such as Don Ho and, more specifically, Tiny Tim. After the 60s, interest in the ukulele started to wane until the late 90s, when a Hawaiian singer-songwriter named Israel Kamakawiwo'ole released a medley of the songs "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "What A Wonderful World" that went on to be used in countless films, television shows, and commercials.

    In recent years, the popularity of the ukulele has skyrocketed tremendously. Masterful uke players such as Jake Shimabukuro have proven the uke to be an incredible instrument with plenty of sonic versatility and tonal character. The beautiful, distinctive sound of the uke can even be heard on the tracks of some of today's most popular bands and artists, including Train, Bruno Mars, and more recently, the 2016 winner of America's Got Talent, Grace VanderWaal.

    Learning to Play Ukulele

    For beginners, the uke serves as a fantastic stepping stone into the world of fretted instruments. Its small body makes the ukulele extremely comfortable to hold while its four-string design and short scale length make it easy to play and switch between chords.
