While waiting for your DVD to arrive in the mail, below are a set of chords
that are essential for starting out. Start building your chord “vocabulary” right now…
Take note that the black dots show where you press the fingers of your left hand. The zeros at the top of the chord grid indicate strings that are open but still strummed or picked. Take time now to try each of these chords . . Test out the sounds, making sure that the fingerings are secure and confident. Quiz yourself or have another quiz you as you play the chords. . . Always an aim to get the notes clear and strong. . . You may notice a slight bit of pain or irritation to your fingertip but that will soon fade way with daily consistent practice. These are the very first steps to start you on your journey. . . Developing a strong chord vocabulary is a neccessity. . . . I would highly recommend you consider purchasing the full UKULELE BASICS DVD which includes video tutorials on tuning as well as lessons on chording, fingering, strumming, fingerpicking, Playing in 4/4 time, playing in 3/4 time and all with a large collection of songs to develop and strengthen your new found skills.
