I decided to purchase a Ukulele as learning guitar was getting quite difficult for me, being a beginner. Once I received it, I loved how it sounds and is very much simpler to learn with 4 strings. It looks very nice, the color and design has a modern contemporary look. It feels well made and very easy to handle. With the strings you don't need as much pressure and bar chords are a whole lot easier. You need to tune it more often though, as compared to a guitar. And I could find online tutorial videos to a lot of songs, as well. So it's a good instrument for someone like me who is a beginner to string instruments.
