Happy New Guitarlele Day. I hope we soon hear something with you playing it.

Hmmmm... is that basically a teeny tiny classical guitar?  My brother still has my classical, and I think I may never get it back.  He's not playing it.  Yet he's not returning it either.  It may have "disappeared", which is OK.  Maybe I need one of these!!!!  big_smile

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

Funny thing though...... I'm not sure the F or B chords are any easier on a smaller guitar, but perhaps the Nylon strings help??

It's confessional time (again), I started on a Classical Guitar..... playing that "long hair" music.  Nylon strings are softer and in many ways easier on the fingertips.  Not too big a change from your Uke so you should have calluses enough to skip the painful bleeding part.  Per your other post in chat, try the FMaj7 for awhile (regular F with the high E string "open" in Roger's C/G shape) then you can kinda let your index slump onto the 1st string after awhile and next thing you know you're on to that "Evil B"! wink
