These are good questions, the first being one that most beginning ukulele players have pondered at one time or another. While it’s true that really you could choose any chord as your first ukulele chord, and then learn the rest in any order, most beginning players like to start with 1- and 2-finger chords. What are these magic chords? I’m glad you asked! Read on to find out!
Common Beginner Chords
It’s very common for a ukulele player to start out by learning the 1-finger shapes of C, C7, Am, and A7 chords. These are frequently followed by F and/or A chords (2 fingers). G and G7 chords are 3-finger chords considered crucial by most players, as is the D chord. Em is another one I encourage you to learn early on. Eventually you’ll want to add D7 and E7, D7, B-family chords, and the much-maligned (but so worth learning!) E chord. Whew! That’s a mouthful.
