Time to learn Kokomo by the “Beach Boys,” on the Ukulele. This chord progression has a lot of really cool things going on. The I chord (C) goes to a Imaj7 (Cmaj7) to get a really nice island breeze type of vibe and the IV chord (F) moves to a iv (Fm) which was a classic trick of guys at the time, something you will see the Beatles and David Bowie do a lot of us well. They also have a vm7 (Gm7) and a V7 (G7) in the same song! Crazy! Making it a lot of fun to play and a lot of fun to sing on Ukulele. This is just a great Ukulele song, and we are going to teach you how to play Kokomo on the Ukulele in under 10 minutes! Have fun and keep on learning on playing Ukulele.
Here’s a tutorial of one of my favorite song from The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack, All I Want. It’s very powerful, emotional, and beautiful played on the ukulele. ukuSean does a great job of walking us through the ukulele strumming patterns and ukulele chords. Happy strumming!

This is an excellent ukulele tutorial by TenThumbs Productions walking you through either the Roberta Flack version or the Fugees version of Killing Me Softly ukulele chords. From the tutorial’s description…
Alright, Maybe you like the Roberta Flack version, maybe it was the Fugees, maybe it was Nancy Sintra, Alicia Keys, a lot of people have done this great tune. But no matter who it was, we are going to teach you how to play it today. It is a relatively simple song. The E major, B7 and Fmaj7 might be a little tricky when learning how to play Ukulele, but the strum pattern is basic and there are no crazy changes, making it a fairly easy song to learn how to play on the Ukulele. What we are going to do is break down the two parts, chorus and verse, and than do a play-a-long, and than after that we are even going to look at some ideas you can do to finger pick it out. We are going to break down how to play Killing Me Softly (with his song) on Ukulele so that no matter what your level you can learn how to play!
