Popular Ukulele Songs (4)
We all want to learn popular Ukulele songs but where to find them?
For overview of the most popular Ukulele song we recommend UkuTabs.com. If you want to play some of the songs and you find them a bit difficult, try to transpose, and if you are lucky you can find the song in some chords that you can play.
As you know, normally you transpose because you want your voice to match your playing. But you can also transpose for finding the song with cords that you can play. It is better to be able to play a song than not, if you are not in the mood for learning new cords.
Here is the top 10 from UkuTabs:
- Twenty One Pilots » Can’t Help Falling In Love
- Israël Kamakawiwo’ole » Over The Rainbow /… (our post)
- Jason Mraz » I’m Yours
- Twenty One Pilots » House Of Gold
- Leonard Cohen » Hallelujah
- Vance Joy » Riptide
- Train » Hey, Soul Sister
- Cristin Milioti » La Vie En Rose
- Misc Cartoons » Someone To Lava

Normally we suggest that you learn some chords and learn some songs that fits to it. That is a good approach. But if you always have dreamed to play a particular song, don’t let us stop your dream.
