Start with the C major chords and practice strumming all
four chords shown. The first and fourth chords are the same.

Then practice the opening measures of "Old Folks at Home"
(Fig. 21).

What you will need next is a book of songs or some copies of
some popular music you like. Get these at a music store or ten-
cent store and go to work on them. If you can get books written
specially for the ukulele, this will be a help as they will show
you what chords to use. But this is not really necessary. All
you have to do is to look at the key a piece of music is written
in (the number of sharps or flats), and then use the chords
shown for that key in the diagram in Fig. 20.
