View Full Version : Best song tutorial videos?

04-26-2011, 08:29 PM
Uke rookie here with no previous experience on a stringed instrument. I'm rocking a $25 piece of crap Rogue soprano until my Fluke arrives, but looking to learn a song or two to play when my new baby arrives. I've searched high and low on YouTube but can't really find any videos that cater to the complete noob. I'd like to learn a few modern songs and need help with strum patterns and whatnot.

Check out HawaiiMusicSupply on YouTube. They offer several videos on strumming, chords and the like. Some of the first stuff I found when I started out and it helped me. Good luck and welcome to UU!

You can find MusicTeacher2010 on Youtube. He has great lessons:


If you are looking to get rolling and you have a little money to spend, the strumming course done by Brett @ ukuleletricks.com is absolutely fantastic! There are around 20 lessons starting with holding the uke, strumming patterns, and growing into different songs. There is a really nice pdf to go along with each video lesson. I don't know Brett, but he sure does a good job on his tutorials!

Here is a link to the page: http://www.ukuleletricks.com/ukulele-strumming-tricks/
