In this ukulele lesson you will learn to play some variations to two chords in the key of C. With small means the chords will sound more exciting. We will start with the A-minor chord:
A-minor is an easy chord to play if your ukulele is tuned in C. C-tuning means that your first string is tuned to an A. The first string is the bottom string when you play.
Here is the A-minor chord written with ukulele tabs:
The four lines represent the four strings on your ukulele. The top string indicates the first string with the highest pitch. As before mentioned it is the A-string if you play in C-tuning. The numbers tells you which frets to press down to play the chord.
If you lift up your finger from the fourth string you will get a A-minor seventh chord. Here are the two chords together:
You it is time for you to learn an easy strumming pattern. It consists of eight notes strummed evenly of course in the following manner:
(3)Am (1)Am7 (2)Am (2)Am7
This means, strum three times on Am, once on Am7 and twice on Am and Am7. When you have strummed these eight down strokes you have completed one bar. Play two bars with this pattern and then it is time for the next chord and variation. It will be the F chord and the G11 chord. They look like this:
Use the same strumming pattern with these two chords and play two bars and you will have a strumming lick that will sound nice.
You can use this pattern in a chord sequence like this for example:
Am / / / Am / / / F / / / F / / /
A principle you can use is to see if you can modify the chords you use in order to make the chords and the strumming patterns more exiting.
