PICKING

ok, here is your ukulele fretboard, and each line is a string.  I dont know how to tab, so here is my rendition of I'm Yours.  Red notes are starting notes, blue notes are end notes.

1)  It starts off with your first and middle fingers (F,M) on the bottom 2 strings of the second fret.
2)  Play the 2 strings and slide them up to the second fingering position: (F2, M2).
3)  Then put your fingers back on the original F,M position and play the strings again.

oo        ||          |          |           |           |          |           |           |
  o    o  || _____|______|______|____ __| _____|______ |______|___


4)  Repeat steps one and 2, only the last position, (F3,M3) changes to this one.

oo        ||          |          |           |           |          |           |           |
  o    o  || _____|______|______|____ __| _____|______ |______|___

5)  leaving your fingers on the last position, play the strings twice, and move to position 4 without taking your fingers off of the strings.

oo        ||          |          |           |           |          |           |           |
  o    o  || _____|______|______|____ __| _____|______ |______|___

6)  Play these strings one more time, and then change to position 5 and play these 2 strings once.

oo        ||          |          |           |  M5    |          |           |           |
  o    o  || _____|______|______|____ __| _____|______ |______|___

7) leaving these fingers on these strings, take your pinky and ring fingers (P,R) and pick the second and last string accordingly.  You should strike the strings 3 seperate times in this step.

oo        ||          |          |           |  M,2    |          |           |           |
  o    o  || _____|______|______|____ __| _____|______ |______|___

8)  Now repeat these steps until ready to move on to chords.

CHORDS

Once you master both picking and chords, you will be able to mix the 2 with practice.

Note:  You can indeed play this song on any fret without a capo, for those of you who sing better in a different tune!
