I am starting to teach some of the kids in my fourth grade class how to play ukulele.

I am looking for easy songs to teach them, three chords or at least easy chords.

I would like the songs to have a "cool" factor. Beatles or Stones (etc) are cool to me anyway.

What songs do you guys start with?


THANKS

you'll find the chords to songs by the laurie berkner band & dan zanes. two groups who do fun & not too musically challenging that kids & adults will like.

check them both out on youtube to see what the songs are like.

some faves with easy chords:

lbb:
Walk Along The River
Under a Shady Tree
Mahalo

dz:
catch that train
mariposa olé
jump up
malti
hello


enjoy!
