I was noodling around on the ukulele just the other day and I came up with a little fingerpicked tune that sounded ok. Rather than let it go to waste and out of my mind (like I usually do) I figured I would tab the tune out and make it available for anyone that is interested. This makes it my first original that I’ve tabbed out for the site (so please be gentle with me).
This week we have a guest post from Eduardo at EasyUkuleleSongs.com, over to you Eduardo…
Have you ever momentarily forgotten the combination on your gym lock and had to slow down – a lot – to get the numbers right? Or automatically brushed your teeth in the morning while thinking about what you had to do that day?
It still amazes me that the title of this post holds true. You can play hundreds (if not thousands) of songs using just 4 chords on your ukulele. Read on to find out which chords, why it works and see a list of songs…
Learn how to play the YouTube smash Can’t Help Falling in Love by Twenty One Pilots on ukulele in this easy to follow lesson with strumming pattern and chord boxes to help you learn.
If you’ve spent any time searching for ukulele videos on YouTube then you’ve likely seen at least one video by Dodie Clark. In a pretty big leap from my usual alt-rock stuff today I thought we’d take a look at one of her original songs.
I love messing around with funk rhythm on ukulele, I treat it really loosely and probably almost never play the same rhythm twice. It’s great to experiment with and it should do wonders for other areas of your playing when you get to grips with the basics.
I’m not even sure how I ended up listening to Kraftwerk this morning but it doesn’t really matter, I ended up playing around with it on the ukulele and it kind of works ok (if you’re willing to let go a bit).
Heart-Shaped Box is probably my favourite Nirvana song so I guess it made sense that one day the time would come for me to butcher it on the ukulele.
