For beginners of Ukulele, the posture of holding the ukulele is very important. Since many people have not developed a good posture for the ukulele at the beginning, it will be more difficult to adjust it later.


The key to mastering the posture of Ukulele is to flexibly use the elbow and wrist joints, while holding the Ukulele body firmly.


Beginners of ukulele sometimes feel that it is difficult to stabilize the ukulele when playing the rhythm. The ukulele posture is fixed with the right upper arm, the inner side of the forearm and the right side of the chest. When the ukulele body is clamped, you will feel that the elbow and wrist joints are not flexible, and you need to practice and adapt more; hold your left hand at the corresponding position to be played, and your thumb against the corresponding position.
