The ukulele is the ultimate outdoor instrument! It fits in any backpack and instantly makes you the star of any impromptu party. To help you play all your favorite tunes on the ukulele, we’ve put together this handy guide with the most common ukulele chords.
Common chords on the ukulele
We’ve arranged the most common ukulele chords for you in two fingering charts. One is for right-handed and one is for left-handed players. The tables even include two popular chord progressions, which serve as the basis for countless songs.
You know these chord progressions (I-V-vi-IV) from the famous “Four Chord Song”. They work for anything from “Let it be” (The Beatles) to “No Woman No Cry” (Bob Marley) to “Over the Rainbow” (Israel “Iz” Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole) – and for thousands of other songs in C or in G. The only thing that changes is the strumming – the rhythm of how you strike the strings while playing the ukulele.
Have fun experimenting with these chords!
