What are the easiest songs on the Ukulele?

Have you already bought your Ukulele at Ukuleleria And now you want to start playing? We understand, many times we want to play our first songs when we have our Ukulele in our hands, even without knowing chords, codes and many things ... and many times we are asked this question What are the easiest songs to play on the Ukulele?

That is why today we decided to make this TOP

TOP 5 easy songs on Ukulele:

#5 Somewhere over the rainbow

One of the first songs everyone wants to learn to play on the Ukulele is this beautiful song by Harold Arlen and EY Harbug made popular on the Ukulele by Hawaiian artist Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole.

The song is very simple, as it has 6 chords (C, G. F, Am, Em and E) and you need a simple strum: 🡳🡳🡱🡱🡳🡱

And there you have it, your first song!

# 4 Lava

Composed by James Ford Murphy and performed by Kuana Torres Kahele, this beautiful song from the Pixar short film "LAVA" is another popular song among Ukulelists, and best of all, it's so easy to play.

We will only use 3 chords (C, G7 and F) with a classic strum, like the one we used in the last song: 🡳🡳🡱🡱🡳🡱

# 3 La Bamba

Although the original version of this typical Mexican song was made for Son Jarocho, Ritchie Valens made it commercial in 1958. We will all remember it for the film and anyone who lives or has gone to Veracruz has heard it in its original genre. Well, here we leave it for you to learn:

To play the bamba we will need 3 chords and a little grace. The chords are G, C and F. As you can see they are very simple chords that we have used before, just like the strum, which is the same as the previous ones:

Now you are ready to stop being a sailor and become a captain.


# 2 I'm Yours

In 2008 Jason Mraz released his third studio album: We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. I'm Yours was the first single released by the American singer-songwriter, and it soon became a favorite of Ukulele players.

It is very simple, we will only need 4 basic chords such as C, G, Am and F. If you have a Kala Chord ColorYou just have to follow the colored arrows marked on the arm of your Ukulele in this order: Red, Green, Yellow and Blue, using the following strum: 🡳🡱🡳🡱🡳🡱

Simple right? Now you can screen your partner by singing a song on your Ukulele.

# 1 let it be

The Beatles are undoubtedly one of the most iconic bands in popular music, and "Let It Be" is one of their best-known songs and the most played by everyone on any instrument. Well, we are not far behind with the Ukulele and we have the chords for the song composed by Paul McCartney and released in 1970.

The chords are practically the same as in the last song: C, G, Am and F. The strum is the simplest because you just have to go down and up all the time: 🡳🡱🡳🡱

Impress your friends and play your parents a song that they will surely want to sing with you.

Well, these were the 5 easiest songs to play, if you had any doubts, Mariana explains some of them better in the following video. Aloha!
