Beatles Ukulele

Beatles ukulele songs can be one of the best ways for those who are new to the instrument to really get invested in learning. After all, everyone knows and loves the Beatles, so why not start with some of the most popular songs by one of the most famous bands in history? Of course, even those who have been playing for years will have a great time whenever they learn new Beatles ukulele songs.

Think about some of the great songs from the Beatles that would work well on ukulele. Songs such as "All My Loving", Here Comes the Sun", "Hard Day's Night", "Help!", "I Feel Fine", "In My Life", "Love Me Do", "Penny Lane", and "Yesterday" are just a few of the hits that sound great on ukulele. In fact, you will find that you can turn just about any of the songs into a great tune on the ukulele.

Where Should You Start?

It really depends on a number of things. If you are a new player, you will want to choose some of the songs that have fewer chords and easier progressions most likely. This will give you the confidence you need to move on toward some of the more difficult songs. Think about some of your favorite songs, choose the simpler ones, and go from there. One that's quite simple and only uses a few chords is "Let It Be". Give this one a shot, and then move on from there.

As always, whenever you are learning a new song, it's best to listen to the original recording first, even if you feel you know the song by heart. Listen to it right before learning and practicing, and it can help to make learning easier. Also, remember that you don't have to get the song right the first time you play it. The Beatles didn't always get the song right on their first take, and you don’t have to either! Take your time and learn it piece by piece. Put it together slowly and before long, you will have an entire song that you can play.

Why Are Beatles Ukulele Songs Great to Learn?

First, the songs from the Beatles are classics. They are fun to play, and they are great pieces of music that are enjoyable for just about everyone. It's also nice that many people out there know the lyrics to a number of the different Beatles' songs, so once you start playing, you can be sure that there will be someone who can sing along with you if you would like. 

The majority of the songs also happen to translate wonderfully to the ukulele. The sound of the instrument brings something different and something special to the songs. They are still the songs you know and love, but you get to play and experience them in a new light. As you progress on the instrument, you might want to add your own unique style and spin to the song to make it your own.
