‘Beginners Ukulele Chords - Easy Reading Book’ has been written following a year of testing and planning and with the knowledge and experience of over 10 years of guitar teaching and 5 years teaching ukulele. 

The book is designed in a large ‘easy reading’ format, to be accessible for primary school age, whilst also being suitable for older children and adults. 

The book contains 15 exercise sheets. On each sheet, you read the chords in the same order you would read a book; top left to top right, then bottom left to bottom right, however make sure to follow the repeats for each exercise before moving on. The goal for each exercise is not to leave a gap in between chords, and to play each exercise continuously 4 times in a row. The numbers in the black circles on the chord diagrams are the finger numbers. These are suggestions as a guide, so other fingers can be used if preferred or more comfortable.

By the end of the book, the beginner ukulele player should be ready to start playing songs that have beginners chords in. The student will have build up a good basic understanding of strumming, counting and chord changes.

The book covers most of the beginners chords you need for starting to play songs. It also covers techniques and fundamentals such as strumming, strumming rhythms, rests, repeats, and counting.

Make sure to spend plenty of time on each sheet and try not to work on too many sheets at once if you are new to guitar chords. Get comfortable and confident on each one before moving on and try to limit yourself to no more than 3 sheets per session or lesson. You could tick each sheet as you go along and make notes on the sides where needed. Once you have done more work and practice on the book, you might be able to do more sheets in one lesson or practice session.

Just what I was looking for!

This is a real good way to learn to play the Ukele. I'm 71 years old so don't possess the fluid brain or fingers of a youngster, and this method allows me to practice chords and strumming until I get them right. It's easy to work at your own speed and the way the lessons are laid out it's not boring, or frustrating, for that matter. This book will give you a good foundation to go on to get you ready to start playing songs.
