In this pair of video tutorials, I introduce the 7 essential chords belonging to the key of C major. This will give you the chord vocab to play a wide range of songs on the Ukulele, in C major.
Part I focuses on the so called Primary triads – the major chords built on the first (I), fourth (IV) and fifth (V) degrees of the major scale. In the key of C, these triads are C (I), F (IV), G (V) / G7 (V7).
After introducing some simple open chord shapes for these chords, I describe a few simple chord progressions which are typical.
Tab is embedded in the lesson, but you can download a pdf and audio below:
