How to Find More ʻUkulele 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 ʻukulele).

Google is also your friend for finding ANYTHING ʻukulele-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 “ʻukulele” because, like I said above, uke chords are the same as guitar chords.
