Everything I learnt, I learnt from Youtube

Before the age of new media, it was not uncommon for one to hear the declaration “Everything I learnt, I learnt from TV.”

Now, it’s more like “Everything I learnt, I learnt it from the Internet” or more specifically, from Youtube!

I’ve written in a previous post about how I learnt chi running from Youtube. You can learn practically anything fom Youtube – Maths, English, communication skills, sports, you name it, it’s on Youtube!

And you can find a plethora of videos on music! I’ve heard people mentioning about how they learnt to play the guitar and even the drums from Youtube videos. I’ve just taken up playing the ukelele at the Ukelele School, so naturally, I’ve also turned to Youtube for inspiration and added instruction and I found an exciting range of videos to keep me going.

For detailed instructions, you can count on Ukelele Mike’s free subscription channel on Youtube.

He even has a Ukelele Beatles channel.

There are many blogs on the ukelele such as Ukelele and all that Jazz.

And I came across the cutest little ukelele player – not very coherent but so cute!

Here’s the little cute guy again!

Next is a not so little but equally cute Japanese guy, Jake Shimabukur, in an amazing display of how the ukelele could work as an effective communication and presentation tool! Watch and learn.

Finally, I found my dream Ukelele online! It’s the cutest little thing, don’t you agree.

Now, all that is left is for me to actually pick up the instrument and start learning the chords and strumming! Hm..if i’m good enough, I may just post my own Ukelele video on Youtube!
