This is a terrific ukulele tutorial for the song Let It Be by the Beatles. I’m especially fond of ukulele video tutorials that display the chords on the screen while the teacher is playing them. Very helpful for us new ukulele players!

Magic! Rude Ukulele Tutorial

June 16, 2014

Todd Downing offers a terrific Magic Rude ukulele tutorial and chord charts. The song works well for playing on the ukulele and his ukulele tutorial uses a capo on the first fret. A great opportunity to use a capo if you haven’t had a chance yet. This ukulele tutorial also uses a chunk to make the strum pattern more interesting. Takes some practice, but definitely worth a shot. Enjoy!
