Beatles Yesterday Ukulele Tutorial

August 28, 2014

This ukulele tutorial will teach you how to play the Beatles song Yesterday using ukulele chords. This version is in the key of F. I find this version to be a more advanced ukulele tutorial because it combines both finger picking and ukulele strumming. But oh, it sounds so beautiful! So get busy practicing, because there are actually four parts to this ukulele tutorial. The first part of the ukulele tutorial teaches you the verse step by step where you actually start strumming upwards. Happy strumming!
