Beginner Ukulele Song: “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”

This last Christmas I bought my wife a new ukulele. Her first ukulele was a really cheap ukulele she got out of a catalogue, so this is her first real ukulele. She loves it and it is a really beautiful ukulele. However, the thing I want to talk about is the little instruction manual that came with it.

It is just a fold out, but it had finger positions and a couple of Ukulele songs for beginners. The one that she started learning was “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”. I was very impressed, because after just a few minutes she was able to start playing and start singing. The other great thing about this song is that it is a lot of fun to sing.

So here is a video on how to learn “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” on the ukulele.
