Ukulele (3/10)

List item

  1. Playability: 10/10. The uke is pretty simple (only 4 strings!) and easy for people of any age to learn. It’s certainly easier than both piano and guitar, and with a simple chord chart, you can play pretty much any song you’d like.

  2. Aesthetic: 8/10. Ukuleles have a bright, warm, soothing sound that goes well with ballads and mellow songs. It’s not as versatile as a guitar (you could play System of a Down on a uke but it might not have the same impact), tending to fit better with certain types of soft songs.

  3. Convenience: 9/10. Yep, ukes are small and easy to transport (I travel with mine in my backpack), and they’re super easy to tune. The only reason they get a 9 is because they are pretty delicate and could easily be broken, so that’s something to keep in mind when traveling with yours.
