Frequently Asked Questions About Playing Ukulele

  • As you start to learn ukulele, you should first master some of the basic chords. Ukulele chords are played by strumming multiple strings simultaneously with your strumming hand. Meanwhile, your fretting hand is used to create the correct shape of a chord. Some easy ukulele chords for beginners include C, Am, G, and F. Learn how to play these and read ukulele chord diagrams by following our guide to basic ukulele chords.
  • Ukulele chord charts are a great way to learn new ukulele chords. However, if you want to play melodies and more complex fingerpicking patterns, consider learning how to read tablature as well. Tabs are a beginner-friendly and simple way to visualize the notes of a song. Every note is represented by a corresponding number. Creating the correct shapes with your fretting hand may not always be easy, so Yousician’s color coding helps you by showing which fingers to use for each note.
  • Ukuleles generally are much smaller than guitars and basses. However, a beginner ukulele player may get confused when trying to choose the correct ukulele size. The most common ukulele sizes include the soprano, concert, and tenor ukuleles. The right size depends a lot on your own size, with the concert and tenor ukulele being the best ones for most beginners. You can read more about different ukulele sizes in our blog. Make sure to check out our ukulele buying guide for some great recommendations as well.
  • Even though in-person ukulele lessons are a great way to learn, they can be an inconvenient and expensive solution. A ukulele app such as Yousician, on the other hand, is an accessible, fun, and beginner-friendly way to start learning ukulele or another instrument. Don’t forget that Yousician’s interactive ukulele lessons aren’t just for beginners. You can try Yousician for free and learn to play whenever and wherever you want.
  • Tuning your instrument is one of the first skills that every musician should learn. Luckily for beginner ukulele players, Yousician teaches you the skill and gives you the right tools to get your ukulele in tune. Yousician’s ukulele tuner with our advanced sound recognition technology listens to you play and tells whether a string is tuned too low or high. Tune your ukulele and start learning with our ukulele tuning guide.
  • Being able to learn ukulele should be possible even if you’re not right-handed. Left-handed ukulele players can access the left-handed mode in Yousician’s settings. This changes how the on-screen ukulele fretboard, chord diagrams, and instructions are displayed. You can customize Yousician’s gameplay in other ways too. If ukulele tabs aren’t your thing, switch between other notation styles, including standard notation for more advanced players.
