I haven’t even started playing yet apart from looking at chords etc on utube until I get my Uke through the post. The chords look very hard to memorise. I’ve got the GCEA (goats can eat anything) lol and Am and F but the rest – aarrgghh.
How did most of you good people learn – if you used utube could you recommend anyone special ?
I can’t wait to get my Ukuele !April 9, 2017 at 19:38 #856
I am finding the best way for me to learn the chords is to play them.
I have some easy tunes in tab form that i am learning and increasing my chord knowledge base.
when looking for songs to learn I try to find one with maybe 1 or 2 “new” chords.
Hope this helpsApril 11, 2017 at 01:19 #868
Hi, Flicker and Ukulelebob! I just want to say that it’s great that you have taken up the ukulele. I’ve been playing since I was five, and I’m thirteen now. I was mainly self-taught, a few tweaks from my dad was all that got up and running. The best way to memorize chords is to keep playing and focus on memorizing the frets and strings. I have now taught myself how to play guitar, and am in the middle of teaching myself piano. Welcome to the UkeWorld, people. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you find joy in a (hopefully) newfound passion.

Thankyou Ukulelebob and Callie Kay. I’m in the process of trying to tune up my strings – I’ve looked alot at utube and it often says to stretch the strings gently then tune up and do this quite a few times. I’m terrified of breaking my strings when I turn that little knob around lol. I suppose I’ll get used to it tho.April 11, 2017 at 20:43 #876
i just use my thumb on right hand to stretch the up and down a 1/2 inch or so..
you will be fine, they take a bit of hammer.
