Tiki Kings Ukulele Lesson, a new chord
Ok! So now you have learned two chords and played two songs. I think it is time for a third,
because, well, three's a charm right? so we are going to learn a new chord. A little harder than
a C, a little easier than a G7. What is this mysterious chord? why it's an F! and it looks like
You put your index finger on the E string on the first fret,
and your middle finger goes on the G string on the second fret.
Then strum all four strings, in one motion,
from top to bottom, with the pad of the thumb
of your right hand.
Hey! Thats an F chord!
If it sounds all buzzy and clunky, or muted,
loosen up, reposition your fingers, and try again.
Since you did that so well, here is a little excercise. strum the F twice, the G7 twice,
and then the C four times. When you get to the end, start over. Go through it until
you can make the chord changes without pausing.
Sounds good! Ready to learn a new song? OK! well, here is another
oldie you probably have heard before...
Give yourself a pat on the back! You played three songs.
Now about that strumming....
I'm in the top 50!
