    Default Need some recommendations...

    Hey guys,

    I just picked up the uke couple days ago because it makes the chill-est/happiest sound. I just learned Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World.... I know I probably learned it wrong, doesn't matter to me as long as I'm having a bomb ass time. I was just wondering if you guys knew any other "beginner/novice" songs that would help me reach my full potential of playing the ukulele. Thanks!

    Welcome aboard! I'm even newer than you (still don't have a uke), but here are a few links I've been collecting. There's tons more, but these are a start.

    Check out chordie.com you can change the chord diagrams to Uke. Alot of time they have different difficulties of the same song.

    Chordie is great. Starting out, I concentrated on those songs that are so deeply ingrained that I never had to wonder how they went, and given my age that ended me up mostly with sappy mid 70's AM radio fare. I found these songs easier to play and sing simultaneously, because I knew them well.

    Me too, esp for uke. Maybe I'll get the time to flesh out and post my "I'm Not in Love" Instrumental version.
    I heard a Bread song somewhere recently, they may be next.
