How to Practice These Chords

For each chord, take the time to position the fingers of your fretting hand to play the chord. Upon doing so, take the thumb from your strumming hand and individually pluck each string of the ukulele to make sure every note of the chord rings out nice and clear.

When you are comfortable with each chord, practice changing from each chord with simple down strums: C to Am to F to G7.

Remember chord positions require a degree of strength and dexterity in the fretting hand to successfully perform the chord. Practice and repetition is required to develop muscle memory.

With your dedicated practice eventually changing between these chords will require little to no effort or thought!
