How many of you love the song by the Hawaiian singer Israel Kamakawiwo'ole 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' you will love this lesson on the instrument that he uses to sing the song. Here is "how to draw a Ukulele", step by step. These mini guitar like instruments have only four strings, and are often called a Uke. The Uke comes from Hawaii and with its initial design it was supposed to be a replica or interpretation of the machete from Madeira, Portugal. Anyways, this lesson should be pretty simple because you are only making a miniature version of a guitar. I will be back with more drawing fun so stay tuned in people.
