To find free ukulele chord information, all you have to do is look on the Internet. This is a great way to get started, especially if you haven't ever played the ukulele before. You may get a free book with ukulele chord charts and wonder at the odd symbols, but it is really easy to read the charts once you get the hang of it. However, reading the chart and playing a song well are two different things.
If this is your first time learning a musical instrument, you will need to research chords and understand how they might be different for the type of ukulele you have.
If you play two or three notes at the same time on a scale, you've just learned to play your first chord. However, chords come in different types from major and minor chords, to other more complex chords called: seventh, diminishing, augmented, and more. Your music instruction should start off using some of the more simple major chords before you even attempt the minor chords.
Even if you understand the theory of the chords and how to read the chart, that doesn't mean that you're using them correctly. The interesting thing about chords is that the same chord chart for a soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele that is tuned to GCEA can be a different chord chart for a baritone ukulele which is tuned differently. The reason is that the position on the fretboard will actually result in a different sound, because of the style of ukulele. So, make sure you are playing the correct chord for your uke's style.
Playing with a friend is always fun, and they can teach you a lot as you proceed in your adventure in learning how to play the ukulele.Return to Home Page
