So start with the commonly used chords here and branch out as your skills and musical taste expands. Creating a C chord on the ukulele The first chord to tackle is the C chord, which uses a single finger. What could be easier? The chord diagram looks like this: Note that the g-, C-, and E-strings all have 0 at the top of them.
But the A-string has a dot at the third fret. So take your third finger ring finger and hold down the A-string at the third fret between the second and third fret wires. Your hand should look something like this: Fingering an F chord on your ukulele The F chord is a little trickier than the C chord.
For one thing, you have to use two fingers to play it, but more importantly, you need to reach over other strings to fret. Use your middle finger to fret the g-string at the second fret.
Strum the ukulele and listen to how it sounds. Your hand should look like this: Playing a G7 chord on your ukulele The G7 chord is another step up in difficulty from the F and C chords because it requires three fingers, because you fret three strings, as the chord diagram shows: Play G7 with your fingers in the following positions: Index finger on the E-string at the first fret.
Middle finger on the C-string at the second fret. Ring finger on the A-string at the second fret. The g-string is open. Your hand should look something like this: Creating the E7 chord on your ukulele The E7 chord uses three fingers, as shown in the chord diagram: You play E7 with your fingers in the following positions: Index finger on the g-string on the first fret.
Middle finger on the C-string, second fret. Ring finger on the A-string, second fret. The E-string is open. This chord is a tricky one because your middle finger has a tendency to catch on the E-string.
So double-check that the chord sounds clear. Make your chord transitions smoother and quicker by anticipating the next chord. For example, when you play a C chord, your index and middle fingers are free. So you can prepare for the F chord by putting them over the place they have to fret next.
