21 Songs in 6 Days: Learn Ukulele the Easy Way 

The free video course included with 21 Songs in 6 Days: Learn Ukulele the Easy Way includes over 100 minutes of video in 45 separate lessons. 

We’ve included a range of examples for you….starting with how to tune your ukulele and going all the way to three chord songs.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

How To Tune Your Ukulele
Watch the video below to understand the parts of the ukulele.

Another thing to learn is ukulele string numbers.

When you first get your ukulele it will have brand new strings.  New strings go out of tune a lot until they are stretched. Then, they stay in tune great.

How long does it take for the strings to stretch? 2-3 days if you tune your uke every few hours, a week if you tune your uke once a day.

Most people find it hard to tune a string by just listening to a pitch and turning the peg.  Lots of people love clip on digital tuners which tell you whether to tune up or down.  You can get one here. (Full disclosure: we make a small commission if  you buy from this link.  The commission doesn’t affect the price you pay.)

21 Easy Ukulele Songs for Christmas

The free video course that comes with our book 21 Easy Ukulele Songs for Christmas includes a lesson video for each song, plus bonus lessons on how to play the chords needed for each song. It has 29 videos and over 100 minutes of instruction.

Learning the F to C7 Chord Change
F Major to C7 is the easiest chord change, because you move from a two finger chord to a one finger chord. However, it helps to just move the first finger between the two strings first. Here are the chord diagrams for that progression:

And here is a video lesson showing you how to play F2 to C7 to get ready for playing the F to C7 chord change.

Jingle Bells

This is a great song to use for learning to fingerpick a melody. Start with the chorus (“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way”) because it is pretty easy. Your left hand can stay in one place (called “first position”) for the entire chorus.

Playing the verse (“Dashing through the snow”) is a lot harder because of the necessary position shifts with your left hand. Use the dots on the side of your ukulele’s fretboard to help you gauge the distances.

Another option is fingerpick only the chorus and strum and sing the verses.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Seven chords in this one! That’s why it’s last in the book.

21 MORE Songs in 6 Days: Learn Intermediate Ukulele the Easy Way

The free video course that goes with 21 MORE Songs in 6 Days includes 114 minutes of video divided into 47 lesson videos.  We’ve included a range of examples for you, starting with how to read tab melodies and going through fingerpicking accompaniments.

Chapter 1, Song One: Reading Melodies and Tab

Are You Sleeping? 

Our first video lesson is on Are You Sleeping? because it’s really easy and you probably already know the tune.

Look at which string line the number is on.  Then use your left hand to stop that string in the fret that matches the number shown.  Remember that 0 means an open string.

  • For the first note, don’t do anything with your left hand and pluck the C-string with your right hand.
  • For the second note you would stop the C string in the second fret.
  • For the third note you would pluck the open E-string. 

About the Video Format

As you watch the video lesson, you’ll hear the way the music should sound. You’ll also see lots of visual cues to help you link how the tab looks with how the music sounds.

video format

The tab symbol that corresponds to the note you are hearing is circled in red in the video lesson. You’ll see Jenny fretting and plucking the string in the main frame of the video and there’s also a dot on the fretboard at the right of the screen to help you see which string and fret go with the tab symbol.
