In this quick lesson, Aldrine will show you an easy way for beginners to switch chords on the ukulele.
There are a lot of ways to approach switching chords but we'll be showing you a very simple and effective way to do this.
When strumming, on a chord, on the up strum of the last beat before the chord change, remove all your fingers from the frets and play an open chord. This will give you time to get your fingers into the proper position for your next chord.
To practice this technique, you can start off switching chords every four beats, then as you get better at this technique, you can try changing on every two beats, then finally every one beat.
If you are completely new to the ukulele, it's best to choose two very simple chords to practice switching chords, for example, the C and F chord. But this practice technique can be applied to any two chords that you need to switch between and is a good way to practice switching between chords you are currently struggling with.
