New to Uke? Learn how to play with easy Ukulele Lessons for beginners.

When you first start out playing your ukulele, you haves to start somewhere!

Here are some basic chords to begin playing with, starting out easy and geting gradually harder. The next lesson I post will contain chords I see fitting to know once you've gotten this set memorized. 

By memorized I mean you can remember the finger positioning, title, and can easily swich between the ones you know. 

Don't worry if you cant get everthing right away, these things can take time :)

 

C chord

- ring finger, fourth string, third space down

 Ukulele chord : C 

 

Am (a minor)

- middle finger, first string, second space down 

 Ukulele chord : Am 

 

F chord 

- middle finger, first string, second space down 

- index finder, third string, first space

 Ukulele chord : F 

 

G chord

- index finger, second string, second space down 

- middle finger, fourth string, second space down 

- ring finger, third string, third space down 

 Ukulele chord : G 

 

 

These should be able to get you through some basic songs

After getting a feel for putting your fingers in each position, try to work on switching between each of them. 

 

As an example try to play this :

C C C C F F F F A A A A G G G G C C C C F F F F C C G G C C C

(chorus to House Of Gold by Twenty One Pilots)

or maybe speed it up a bit

C C F F A A G G C C F F C G C

 

When you have it down, move on to new chords!
