4 Treads and Notes for Ukulele you must learn

Hi Ukulelists!
How are they? How is your year going? Have you learned to play the Ukulele?

If your answer is no, then it is time for you to do so, so today we will learn to play the 4 easiest and most basic ukulele chords, with them you can play an infinity of songs that will facilitate learning in this beautiful world of ukulele and music in general.

Ukulele tuning

The first thing we should be clear about is that any instrument must be well tuned before beginning to play, because if it doesn't sound bad when touched, that's why the first thing you should learn is fine tune your Ukulele.


The standard tuning of the Ukulele is
LA (A), MI (E), DO (C), SOL (G)
(bottom up)

With a tuner you can do it in a very easy way, you just have to play string by string in the air (without pressing any frets) and it must give you right in the center, pointing to the arrow and giving you the letter corresponding to the tuning of the string; for example if it is the first rope will be A which represents a LA.

It is important to remember that the standard frequency at which the tuner should be is 440.

If you want to know more about the tuning I will leave here a link for a blog in which we talk more about it. Ukulele tuning

American encryption

It is important to know about the american encryption, because it is often confusing when we look for a song that we want to learn and is represented differently than we imagine.

American encryption is just one way to simplify the way you read chords, representing it with letters from the alphabet.

Here This is a very easy way to relate them:

Numeration of the fingers, strings and frets

To perform the chords in your ukulele, you should know that each of your fingers has a special number that will help you facilitate the positions you will perform with them: the first finger is the index, the second is the middle, the third is the ring and finally the little finger is the fourth.

And just as your fingers have a number, the strings and frets also have it. which is represented as follows:

The strings are counted from the bottom up counting La (A) as the first and SOL (G) as the fourth, and the ukulele head frets down.

So if I tell you: "put your finger 3 on string 1 on fret 3" would you be playing a DO Chord (C)

Chords BASICS

All right! We have come a great way explaining everything so that you are now ready to perform Your first chords

We will start with the easiest to realize which is DOC).

To do so you just have to place your finger 3 on string 1 on fret 3 and it will look like this:

.

.

The second you must learn is LAm (Am).

What is just putting your finger 2 on the fourth string on the second fret, in this way:

.

.

To perform FA (F) you will only place your finger 2 on string 4 and on fret 2 (same as LAm) but to this you will add your finger 1 on string 2 on fret 1, just like that:

.

.

And finally we have the SOL (G) chord that is performed as follows; finger 1 on string 3 and fret 2, finger 2 on string 1 and fret 2, finger 3 on string 2 and fret 3It seems a bit confusing but in this picture it is better appreciated:
