This morning I was reading loads of post tagged “depression” and it got me thinking…

What is it that I do to cope when I get depressed?

The answer is…

I play the ukulele!

I used to think that the ukulele was just like a toy guitar or something. But if you look it up on youtube there are loads of uke videos.  Did you know that Eddie Vedder plays the ukulele?  Well, he has an album titled Ukulele Songs.

Now Amanda Palmer has her song titled Ukulele Anthem.  It really is genius.  In it she says…

“If only Sid had had a ukulele, maybe he could have been happy

Maybe he would not have suffered such a sad end “

Could it be that music is a useful tool to cope with depression?  It works for me.  The neat thing is that most anyone can learn to play this neat little instrument.

The above chart teaches some chord progressions that can be used if you wanted to write your own uke song.  Think about it…

Some of the greatest songs of all time came from peoples moments of despair.

I hope to teach each of you the above chords in some of my upcoming videos.

  1. Good to read your post. 🙂 I’ve played many other instruments, both self-taught and through traditional lessons. But none seemed as accessible and friendly as the ukulele. In the past few years, I’ve written all but a handful of songs on the uke. I hope you keep enjoying yours and pass that joy to others!

    1. Thanks. I love the ukulele! It has changed my whole perspective on life many of times. You are absolutely right though it is very accessible. I love how easy it is to play even the difficult chords. Comparing it to the guitar of course. I am hoping to share what I have learned on the ukulele in upcoming post. If you have recorded any of your uke songs I would be delighted to share them here. Thanks for visiting The Sister Abigail Show. Peace, Love & Light!

    Could be! Though I do not significantly struggle with depression, stress is another story.
    I’ve found myself to be so much more relaxed since I started fiddling with the ukulele. It’s hard to be negative while strumming away on such a happy little instrument. 🙂
