Basic Ukulele Video Course

This basic ukulele course is designed especially for beginners but should also be helpful for anyone who needs to expand their basic knowledge of playing ukulele. All of the lessons are free and include 19 songs covering 5 common keys (C, F, G, A, and D) and more than 20 different basic chords.

Please note that it’s not necessary to master each song before going to the next. If you’re a beginner, with a little practice you should be able to play along with the SLOW versions of songs with the chords shown. Start at the beginning and work your way through since some lessons build on what was learned in previous lessons. Don’t worry about being able to play along with the NORMAL TEMPO versions. With time and practice you will be able to play them with no problem, but in the beginning just learn the basic chords and play along with the slow versions so you can gain an understanding of the different chords, keys, and rhythm that is taught.
