I have to admit that I love searching around YouTube for ukulele channels. There are some fantastic people out there making great free videos so here are 8 of my favourites…
Ukulele Hunt/Al Wood
Not only does Al Wood have one of the best ukulele sites out there, he’s got a brilliant channel showcasing his great ukulele arrangements. He also sells some fantastic ukulele ebooks.
Got A Ukulele
If you’re looking to buy a ukulele then Barry Maz’s channel is pretty much a must visit. In depth ukulele reviews and even a few tips here and there. If you don’t come away from this channel knowing what your next purchase will be I’d be amazed.
This one is a real gem. The videos here are pretty old but don’t let that put you off. In particular you should check out his best strumming pattern series which has tips and techniques I’ve not seen anywhere else.
An incredibly accomplished player, Petey’s channel has plenty to keep you busy. Petey has a really methodical approach to the ukulele and he’s got some great tips to share with you.
Here you’ll find some fantastic ukulele arrangements to inspire you. You might have to dig around a little as there’s quite a bit of guitar stuff here too but it’s definitely worth your time.
Choan Galvez’s channel is jam packed full of fantastic performances of his ukulele arrangements. I could (and sometimes do) sit and listen for hours.
Is Petey Mack the happiest ukulele player out there? Yes, I think he is. Pete has everything from lessons, tips, performances, reviews and more. Try and watch his videos without smiling, it’s impossible.
Will Grove White
The word madcap springs to mind when I visit Will’s channel. Lessons, crazy covers and even a bit of the old nose flute. What’s not to like?
And finally, I know I’ve already given you 8 but I’d like to take this opportunity to take a look at my own YouTube channel…
On my own channel I try and post useful hints and tips to help beginners get to grips with playing the ukulele.
There we go, hope you’ve found something new!

Wow, great list… you just killed the rest of my weekend. I think the only one I knew of was Al Wood.
Here’s a really odd one to add to your list:
He’s Russian, the link here is with english translations, but I’ve found watching him in Russian (I don’t speak or understand) works really well – you can concentrate on what he’s doing, rather than what he’s saying. And there’s something about his pacing that works really well for me, he builds up patterns in an easy to grasp way I think.
Haha, well hopefully it will keep you happy!
Thanks for the link also, it looks like there’s some good stuff there – going to spend some time going through that one tomorrow.
Thanks for including me! And thanks for Sawlon. I’d completely missed him.
No problem at all, keep up the great work!
Thank you so much! And thank you for showing me all these other wonderful people! I feel so honored… Thank you :0)
Thank you Pete, just keep doing what you’re doing!
