Links to ukulele play along songs

I’m listing here some ukulele play along songs at youtube that I found working for me. Naturally this is very much about personal preference, but hopefully you find some of these working for you too 🙂

  • Note: In some links, the play along is at the end of tutorial
  • Note: with some songs, several play alongs are include to show the variations (different strumming or chords used)
  • Note: finger picking technique is not included in this list, even though it fits nicely for some of these songs
  • Note: I play E7 instead of E, for me E7 is much easier
