HOW TO BEGIN                         3
CORRECT PLAYING POSITION
The middle of the right forearm
should press the back of the ukulele
to the body, firmly enough to pre-
vent its slipping, so it may be played
in either a sitting or standing posi-
tion.
The left arm should be extended
forward, holding the neck of the
ukulele between the thumb and joint
of the fore-finger, with the tip of
the thumb resting approximately at
the side of the first fret.
POSITION OF LEFT HAND AND FINGERS
Study these pictures care-
fully, observe the position of
the thumb, resting at the
side of the neck near the
first fret. The fingers are
curved in position to contact
the strings, and the palm is
held away from the neck.
The front view shows the fin-
gers in place for chording,
observe that only the finger-
tips are used and are placed
behind the frets not on them.
This is important.
