When you are just starting out on the ukulele it can be overwhelming, especially if you aren’t using the Populele ;) Difficult chord diagrams, figuring out finger positions, strumming, feeling the rhythm, tablatures, etc… There are dozens of chords and hundreds of ways to play them.
Everything starts with three basic chords C, Am, F. Once you master these three chords you can learn to play “Going Down the Road”!
Later, you will learn more of the major and minor chords including G, Dm, Em, D, A, E, Fm. There is a song you can play after learning each additional chord like “Twinkle Twinkle” for G, “Jingle Bell” for Dm and “Million Years Ago” for E.
