Ukulele Video Lessons - 7ths Chords

In this series of ukulele video lessons, you will be learning the 7th chords. You can also use the ukulele chord chart in conjunction with the videos.

7th chords are usually used as a change over chord in chord progressions. For example: G, G7, C, D or A, A7, D, E. If you go into depth about 7th chords in music theory, there are many different types of them and how they are used. Major 7ths, dominant 7ths, minor 7ths, minor major 7ths, augmented 7ths, half diminished, diminished 7ths, and suspended 7ths. Whew! Don't worry about all of that, cause most of the time I'm teaching just the basics.
