Tuning the Ukulele


Rhythm Reading Exercise on Open Strings of the Ukulele

(Graphic from: TheUkuleleWay.com)

Here's a few very easy two chord arrangements to try!

For these songs, you will only need two chords:



Try playing You Are My Sunshine while you sing.

Remember, "Practice makes progress!"

Now, watch as some of our fifth grade strummers demonstrate

You Are My Sunshine

for you in the video below!

Practice moving from one chord to another. The more you practice, the easier it will get. It takes time! Remember the line in the beach sand?

When your fingers are able to switch between each of the three chord shapes pretty well,

then try adding this A-minor chord to create a new chord progression.
