I have a 4 year old little boy, that loves my basses and loves to play with them. As you might imagine, they swallow him whole, so there isn't much hope for really teaching him anything, hands on, anytime soon. It occurred to me, (ignoring the obvious differences in tuning and other fundamental differences), to the casual observer, a uke, is just a tiny 4 string bass. Is it something any of you have contemplated, or experimented with, the idea of getting a little one started learning bass, on a ukulele? It seems, in terms of getting his hands on something he can physically handle and becoming familiar with the basic posture, hand movements, etc. to be a no brainer. That said, I'm nobody's "musician", i'm a novice to the core, who learns by tabs and determination. Which is to say, I'm fully aware of how absolutely absurd the idea may be. So by all means, give it to me straight, doc... Any thoughts? First post, btw. So, hi all I'm Jerry, in Houston. Thanks!
