Basic Ukulele Chords (C, F & G7)
Here at StrictlyUkulele, we believe that 3 chords is all you need to make the world a happier place.
Today, you're going to learn these 3 chords.
In the beginning, it's going to be difficult and frustrating. But hey, it's worth it right? ;) If you're a true beginner, the ends of your fingers WILL start to feel sore after a while, BUT DON'T GIVE UP. Eventually, the tip of your fingers will turn slightly rough. That's ok, because this is when it stops hurting.
This is what we recommend:
Practise going back and forth between the "C" and the "F" chords. Do this until you feel comfortable.
Next, go from the "C" to the "G7" chord and back. Practise playing these two chords until you get used to moving your ring finger back and forth on the same string.
Finally, alternate between the "F" and "G7" chords. Practise, practise, practise! Make sure you could do it with your eyes close!
