Chord Magic page 1 Chord Magic We're going to teach you how to play all of the chords (major, minor, 7th, diminshed, ...) in all of the keys (A, Bb, B, C, ...) in all of the positions (up and down the fretboard). The magic in "Chord Magic" is that you can do this without a lot of memorization. Let me show you what I mean. Think about the 7th chords for example. You can play an A7 chord at four different positions on the fretboard of a soprano ukulele (trust me on this for now – I'll show you how in a minute). Same for every other chord: to play all 72 major chords, you only need to learn four more patterns. Don't be intimidated by the length of this writeup. The ideas here are simple, and you'll pick them up pretty quickly. If you're already an advanced player, or if you've already got an understanding of some of these concepts, you can skim through this document: read the "Important Points" and the "Tips", and study the summary Fig. 21: How To Play All Of The Chords In All Of The Keys.

On the surface, the song is a black slave's lament over his white master's death. The song, however, has a subtext of rejoicing over that death, and possibly having contributed to it by deliberate negligence.[1] Most versions at least nod to idiomatic African English, though sanitized, Standard English versions now predominate. Abraham Lincoln was an admirer of the tune, calling it "that buzzing song." When I was young I us'd to wait On the master and hand him his plate; And Pass down the bottle when he got dry, And brush away the blue tail fly. refrain (repeated each verse): Jimmy crack corn and I don't care, My master's gone away.

Scales page 1 Scales Let's look at how to play scales on the ukulele. Why? Well... The easy answer is that, like eating your vegetables, it's good for you. But there are also more substantial reasons. We're assuming some basic level of understanding of music theory here (not very much though, so don't run away yet!) We're not going to go into more exotic modes (if you don't know what a mode is, don't worry – we're not going there in this tutorial), we're just going to show you how to play major scales, with a brief paragraph at the end to talk a little about minor scales. The first scale to learn is the C major scale. Here are the notes of the C scale on a piano keyboard. Now, there are many ways to play a scale on the ukulele. Here's the most practical way to play the C scale on a ukulele. Now you may have noticed that the fifth note ("So", a G) is played on the E string third fret rather than the open G string. Here's that C major scale shown all at once on the fretboard:
