Ukulele scales

If you are a beginner, you do not need to start with the Ukulele scales.

A Ukulele is not a piano :-). Just learn some chords and start strumming.

Later, you may be want to play some single notes in good ukulele songs, and then you need to know where to find them.

For that reason, you may need a map of the notes/scales, or you need to learn how stringed instruments are set up with strings, frets and scales.

If you also want to play scales on the Ukulele, it depends on what key you want to play.

All keys have different maps. This is a map of the Cmaj scale. (Hold your finger on the note you want to play on the chart and play that exact string.)

Why learning the scales?

If you want to learn the scales, we assume you are not a beginner. And want to take your Ukulele playing to a higher level.

It’s also nice if you play in a band and want to be able to play a solo, or the real melody, when the rest of the band plays the chords.

Also, it’s really nice to be able to play some notes in different songs, not just the chords. Maybe especially at the beginning of the song? Then everyone recognizes the song, and it’s a good start before you start with the chords and sing the song.

Or it can be genuinely nice inside the song to take a break from the chords.
