If anyone has any simple songs that are fun they'd like to suggest I'd really appreciate it. I just got my Uke last night and I have 4 months till my annual camping trip, so I'd like to try and get down some fun stuff to play around ye olde campfyre. I'm working on No woman no cry, but I think I need to set my sights a little lower, lots of chord to picking and switching in that one. So I'm gonna screw around and keep checking up here. Help a noob out!

Try finding some songs that work fine as just chords.

Ukulele Boogaloo has some good ones. I like the version they have there of "Walking after midnight"

It's in a funny key, I think, but it's immediately recognizable with only strumming, and sounds more complex than it is...

It's especially useful if you use Last.fm
