Ukulele Tutorial: 4 Chords

The reason that I started learning the ukulele was because I wanted to be able to sing and play actual songs. To be honest, I didn’t really know that much about music when I first started, but my image was that I would have to learn many chords just to play one song.

While this may be true for some songs, most just require a couple or chords. The first song that I learned was “I’m Your’s” and that only required 4 chords. As it turns out, a lot of songs only need a few chords. The below video teaches you a bunch of songs that only need 4 chords to play .

The songs in the video are:

  • Where is the Love?
  • Superman
  • She Will Be Loved?
  • Collide
  • No One
  • I’m Yours

Once you learn the chords and the strums, make sure that you spend a lot of time practicing. Finding the chords and switching in between them may seem difficult at first, but as you play more and more your fingers will start finding the chords all by themselves. Also, remember to take small breaks in between your practicing. It will help you stay more relaxed and less frustrated in the beginning.
