    Am7 or C6. Love them both.

    I'm partial to minor 7ths, Diminished and Augmented chords.
    Some minor 6ths and Major 7ths

    you can see how I use them in the various songbooks at
    ( ukulelebootcamp.weebly.com ).

    if you go there, please take advantage of the Holiday Songbook!

    keep uke'in', and Happy Holidays!

    I'm particularly fond of G major, or rather the 2010 shape if only because whatever song I'm marking up with chord diagrams, it seems regardless of what key it's in, what tuning I'm transposing it for, or how jazzy the chords are, there's at least one 2010 in there somewhere. Otherwise, the diminished chords, because they perk up almost any song and you only need to learn one shape to play them all the way up the neck.

    Maybe it's my old football injury, but isn't 2010 an F?

    I second whoever said major sevenths. CM7 is a particular favourite because it's so easy to play.

    Dick, did you know that Lime In The Coconut is C7, the whole song? One of my favorites.

    I'm learning 15 chords of each key, and the last one on the list is the 7sus4, really creme de la creme!
