Kalani Das has put together these three great ukulele videos for the month of September!
These videos are great for new players looking to start playing with a little more in-depth and creative techniques than just your every day 3 chord song.
The first video is great for those just starting to pick up and play immediately! Learn how to play Five 1-Finger Chords on the Ukulele. In this Ukulele tutorial, Kalani shows you how to play five easy one-finger chords, including: C7, A7, Am, C, and F (easy version)
