Chord Progressions: I - IV - V7 Chart

This excellent chart is from a wonderful Ukulele Learning website: http://doctoruke.com

He covers most everything about Learning to Play Ukulele, from the very beginning to advanced levels

and he really is a Doctor of Medicine, based in Connecticut :-)


Important Update! There is a newer easier D7 Chord, nicknamed the "Hawaiian D7"

which is great for beginners like me, because it is a simple 2 finger chord, instead of the traditional bar chord version.

Here is the Chord Diagram from "Boogaloo Ukulele" website:

Comments:
1. These are the common chords that go together in a chord progression in several different keys. Many popular songs can be played using the chords from each line. (3 chord songs)
2. Each line is called a I IV V7 (“1,” “4”, “5 7th”) progression because the letter of the chord corresponds to the 1st, 4th, and 5th steps on each individual scale. (the 5th chord is a dominant 7th style chord, whereas 1 and 4 are major chords).
