They are marked by level for easier navigation.

Three or four basic chords
Intermediate
3-6 medium chords

Many and/or difficult chords

Without further ado, here are the songs:

How to Find More Ukulele Songs

There are so many mainstream songs out there that it would be impossible to put a dent in posting all of them here, so I’ll recommend a couple good places to find chords to your favorite tunes (the chords for guitar are the same as for ukulele).

Google is also your friend for finding ANYTHING ukulele-related. Try a search like: “[song name] chords”. Add the band name if you results are muddy: [song name] by [band name] chords. You don’t need to include “ukulele” because, like I said above, uke chords are the same as guitar chords.
