Beginners

This Ukulele course introduces the main chords and main keys on the increasingly popular little four stringed instrument known by many simply as ‘THE UKE’. A range of popular and folk songs are covered which takes the learner through all the basic hand movements for rhythm playing. Chord charts in all keys are provided for what has become a popular instrument that’s fun to play.

You will learn the principle chords in the main seven keys, rhythm strumming and how to use the wrist for rhythm playing on selected songs.

You will need:

UKELELE. It does not have to be an expensive instrument but we want to stay clear of cheaper toy like instruments. It is best to go for a TENOR uke. Try the CONCERT uke as well but you may find this too small when starting.
Type: Soprano. Best for: Children, smaller hands
Type: Concert. Best for: Classic ukulele sound
Type: Tenor. Best for: Players looking for a fuller sound
Type: Baritone. Best for: Bigger body – LOUDER

TUNER. This can be purchased at any music shop for around 12 euro. Some tuners have a setting for the ukulele (usually the letter ‘U’) but the simpler ‘GUITAR ONLY’ tuner will also do.

WRITING PAD AND PEN for extra notes and plastic folder. Get a plastic folder to keep the weekly course notes the tutor will supply and bring a notepad and pen for extra information you want to keep.
