Here is a short YouTube video which I really enjoyed the first time I watched it - 'Learn to play the ukulele in less than 10 minutes' - this guy covers everything you need to get started .... at speed and wait until near the end when he plays and sings a number of popular songs ..... good entertainment.
You can play the ukulele using both a 'strumming' technique as show in the video above or using a 'picking' technique. Both methods are clearly demonstrated in the videos below.
The first video shows basic strumming techniques.
Now let's see one of todays great ukulele players ..... Jake Shiabukuro, playing Bohemian Rhapsody. Jake usually plays a tenor ukulele and with its longer neck allows for his advanced playing technique.
