The 4 super-easy ukulele chords

You’ll be able to play almost any song with a proper combination of these chords. So many songs use about two or more of them.

The C-major chord

There’s hardly a song that doesn’t use this chord. Even if the key is different, you can always switch it up and play your song in the C-major. So how do you play this chord?

●      Fix your ring finger on the third fret of the A-string and make sure that you hold it firmly. The A-string is the last string closest to your feet.

●      Leave every other string open.

●      Strum all the strings together.

It’s quite easy, isn’t it?

The A-minor chord

●      Put your middle finger on the second fret of the G-string. The G string is the top string closest to your face.

●      Leave every other string open

●      Strum all the strings together.

The F chord

Now, here’s some challenging stuff.

●      Fix your middle finger on the second fret of the G-string like we’re still playing the A-minor chord.

●      Put your ring finger on the E-string. The E-string is the one closest to your A-string.

●      Leave every other string open.

●      Strum all the strings together.

The G7 chord

Here’s another really daunting chord to play but you’re going to love it.

●      Put your middle finger on the second fret of the C-string. The C-string is the one closest to your G-string.
