Ukulele songs for beginners (1)
When you start playing the Ukulele and want to learn beginner Ukulele songs, you should first learn some simple chords.
For example, C, F and G7, and try switching from one to another. This is also a progression.
When you know some chords you must learn to strum. Read our post about Strumming!
This is the first of five articles on songs for the Ukulele.
Further down in this post you will find some links to songs you can play. Thanks to the Ukulele Sites for providing us with this service! 🙂
The cords C, F and G7
Read the article about chords on the Ukulele and print out the chord charts.
Once you’ve learned the chords and can switch between them fairly quickly, you can try out some beginner Ukulele songs.
It may also help to buy a beginner’s book to get some explanations, and some simple ukulele songs. Pick one or two songs you like and learn them. It’s a lot of books on the link. Amazon ad for books.
You can buy the books in a music store or on net. First off all, try to buy them locally!
Or maybe you need a new Ukulele? (#Ad)
First try to learn the songs in the easiest way. Switch from one chord to another and learn the pattern of the chords. Then try playing it so you can hear it’s the right song. Play it at the same time as you sing the lyrics, until you feel it’s okay.
After you achieve this, try to add the best strumming pattern and keep the beat.
The beat is important, so if you have trouble you can use a metronome. A metronome can also be downloaded as an app to your phone, or you can purchase one separately.
Practice, practice and practice. After a while you can manage one song and if you are a beginner it’s 100% improvement :-).
It’s better to be able to play one song well than several bad ones. It also gives you peace of mind. Then you know you can actually learn a song well. You also give a better impression to your audience with a song you know well.
Now you have the opportunity and confidence to learn the next song. Good luck!
