Item No: 21708


compiled by Denise Gagne.

The chords used in this collection are introduced through a series of one chord songs (C tuning). Mastering the chords before having to learn to change chords eliminates much of the frustration that young beginners face. After introducing the chords used, 22 easy two-chord songs are given. This collection also includes 13 songs with three or more chords.

Students will learn the chords and how to change chords using the folk songs that are given in the collection. Where possible in the Teacher's Guide (21704), links to the original artists’ performance, lyric pages, chord practice videos and ukulele tutorial videos are given. This collection does not address reading notes and playing melodies - the focus is on learning songs to sing and strum.

Folk songs for beginners to sing and strum, tuning tips, downloadable MP3s with recordings of 42 songs, chord charts and lyric sheets, and web links to more play-along pop songs.

Paperback plus downloads
