Since I am a beginner uke player and learning from Youtube online lessons and the Ukulele Underground Forum, etc.

I will be sharing my adventure in learning and playing with you...

1. "Chordie" is your friend online! :-) They list hundreds of song lyrics with the accompanying Chords positioned

exactly along the phrasing/singing of the text. Here is the link for "Lion Sleeps Tonight":

Now some videos to watch different variations and learn about basic strumming and some finger picking techniques...


1. A Total Beginners Class in London :-) If they can do it, we can do it too...
