Why Start with These Beginner Chords?

You can learn ukulele chords in any order you want. But the sequence above maximizes the number of songs to choose from whenever you add a new ukulele chord to your practice.

You can test this out yourself using the Next Best Chord feature.

The chord order above also has the added benefit of simplicity. The first few chords (C, F, and G) use 1, 2, and 3 fingers respectively. And this helps you ease into playing as a beginner.

But you don't have to start with C major. For a complete list of different entry points, check out:
