Ukulele Video Lesson - Love Yourself (Justin Bieber)

Watching ukulele video lessons will allow you to play some of today’s most popular pop music in a unique and interesting way – on the ukulele. While many of the songs on the radio and popular on Internet streaming services are highly catchy, you can make them even more interesting by learning how to play them on the ukulele. Take “Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber, for example. He’s one of the most popular performers of this generation, and the catchiness of his songs is a big part of that. This is one of his most popular tunes, and if you haven’t heard it yet, go and listen to it and start thinking about how you can turn it into a ukulele song.

Song History...

“Love Yourself” is a relatively new song from Bieber, but he did not write it alone. He co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran. You can hear Sheeran’s influence in the song, but it is definitely a Bieber track. As you listen to the song, you will immediately understand why this is such a good option for ukulele. It’s a very simple song that’s also very catchy – the perfect recipe for a hit.

When he was asked whether the song was about someone he had been in a relationship, Bieber replied that it was. However, he went on to say that he didn’t want to make anyone upset, so he declined to say who the song was actually about.

Once the song was released it proved to be extremely popular. It went to the number one spot on the UK charts, replacing another Bieber song, “Sorry”. There were only two other performers to have done that in the past – Elvis Presley and The Beatles. The song also went to the top spot in the United States, where it replaced “Sorry.” It seems that the performer is in some very rarified air.

The song also happened to be the first number one for Ed Sheeran as a writer. He had only reached number two, which was still an impressive feat, with “Thinking Out Loud.”

Bieber has performed this song live with just an acoustic guitar, and it loses none of its power. In fact, many feel that the stripped down version of the already simple song sounds better. That’s why the ukulele is a perfect choice for this song, and it’s one that you should certainly add to your list of songs.

Why Should You Learn “Love Yourself” With a Ukulele Video Lesson?

Whether you are a huge fan of Justin Bieber or not, you can’t deny that there’s a certain catchiness with this song. Since it is so popular, you can be sure that most people are going to recognize it as soon as you start playing. They will be quite pleased when they hear just how great it sounds on the uke too! Another reason to add this song to your list of songs is because it’s relatively easy to play, so you should not have too much trouble learning it. Just take it slow, as you do with any song that you are learning. Then, once you get the music down, you will find that singing along with it is actually very easy.

The reason you want to use ukulele video lessons to learn is because you can actually see and hear how the song should sound on ukulele. You can watch the videos until you get each part down. It’s a fast and easy way to learn, and you can find this and a number of your other favorite songs available as well.
