    I don't know about those two but I enjoyed this video course very much. And it is less than $9usd a month.

    Definitely start with the Beginners Video Course. It takes you from "zero" and logically progresses through the different skills needed to play ukulele. This is a very very well done video series for someone with no fretted instrument experience, that was me 3 years ago. Have fun......I know you will
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    When watching youtube lessons, remember you can hit the gear icon at the bottom of the screen and slow it down if need be.

    I just signed up for this site and I really like it so far.

    Also, The Ukulele Teacher is fantastic. I have learned several songs by watching his videos. He has a YouTube channel with tons of free videos.

    I started with Cynthia Lin on Youtube and made very good progress. I moved on to Rockclass101, also a good teacher, though I would find him more difficult if I hadn't had the videos with Cynthia.
    There are lots out there.

    If you're talking about the UU+ vids, you should start with Ukulele 100. It covers how to hold & tune and strum and finger positioning and what not. Which then leads to the 101 vids, then to 102!

    I started 2 weeks ago with UU+ and I'm progressing quickly. Highly recommended!

    I never played an musical instrument before. I purchased a inexpensive uke 15years ago then found "Uke Minutes" on UU. I watched everyone of them over and over and began to play many simple songs. The "hook" was set. Today, there is not a day that goes by that I don't pick up a ukulele. I never leave home without one. The more I learn the less I know.

    I'll second the "Ukulele Way" recommendation. Actually, it's $9 Canadian, so if you're in the US it's less than $7 per month. I'm completing Book 3. My kids recently finished the related Ukulele in the Classroom curriculum and are now starting Ukulele Way Book 1. If Ukulele Way also included practice exercises in addition to each lesson's repertoire piece, it would be pretty much perfect.

    Before starting Ukulele Way, you'd want some basic familiarity with the uke. You could do "Play Ukulele Today" which is a small introductory volume and part of the "Ukulele Way" group of products.
