    I’d like some sort of chord progression chart, so I could practice my beginner chords, again and again and again. I tried to create my own, but it didn’t sound at all musical. I’d like to just take the 30 chords I’m supposed to have learned in my group ukulele beginner class, and be able to go and go and go, getting better at them. Ideally, it would sound somewhat musical, and incorporate all the chords. Help!

    1. Danno says:

      You could do a quick search on “common chord progressions” and probably get what you’re after.

      On the other hand, you could do virtually the same thing by choosing song that you love and playing those. Songs are made up of chord progressions, so you’d be getting virtually the same practice while having more fun and expanding your repertoire!
