Video Lesson: Playing strings and chords on the ukulele

In these video lessons, we review the strings on the ukulele, and how to play the chord ‘C’.

The strings on the ukulele are notes G, C, E, A. If you hold the instrument with the strings towards your face, the string names go right to left. We like to give each string the name of an animal to help us remember them. If you have a ukulele at home, why not try joining in?

Our second video reminds us how to play a chord. Remember a major chord is: 3 notes, a 3rd apart, played at the same time. We review how to play C major. What chords do you know?
