In the language of music, there are major chords and minor chords. Minor chords have a different “feel” to them. We are often taught in music class that minor chords sound “sad” and major chords sound “happy.” In this blog, we will talk about the most common ways to play three different minor chords on the ukulele, in increasing difficulty: Am, Gm, and Bm. Plus, stay tuned at the end of the blog for some songs you can play using these chords!

Building Minor Chords

In music theory, to make any minor chord involves taking the root third note of any major chord and “flattening” it, or, dropping it down a half-step. So, for example, the notes in the A major chord are “A, C#, and E.” Therefore, to make the chord a minor chord, we need to drop the C# down to a C- one half step. To do this, we move the third note of the chord 1 fret down.

On the ukulele, this means we are playing the open C string. It’s important to mention here that there are many different “voicings” of the same chords that can be played on the ukulele. When you know the notes involved in forming a particular chord, any combination of those notes will make the same chord. In this blog, we will be looking at the most common ways to play these chords. Let’s take a look! 

A Minor

The A minor chord is one of the easiest to play on the ukulele. As such, it’s great for beginners. It also happens to be a very common chord in many songs played on the ukulele. Because it is in both the key of C and the key of G, which are two of the most popular keys to play in, you will use this chord a lot in your playing! So, just how do we form the Am chord?

If we remember that our string names are G C E A, and we know the notes involved in playing A minor are A, C, and E, then to play it on the ukulele, we know that we simply fret the 2nd fret of the G string with your middle finger (your second finger), and then strum all the rest of the strings open. On a tab, it looks like this: 

G Minor

The notes in the chord of G minor are G, Bb (B flat), and D. To play it, you place your pointer finger, (your first finger), on the first fret of the A string, your middle finger (second finger) on the second fret of the C string, and your ring finger (third finger) on the third fret of the E string. You then strum all four strings. The ukulele tab for G minor looks like this: 

Am chord on ukulele

B Minor

And now for the trickiest chord we will be talking about in this blog: the B minor chord! The reason this chord shape is challenging is because it requires us to play a barre chord. A barre chord is a chord played on a string instrument such as a guitar or ukulele where one finger plays more than one string at a time, making a “bar” with that finger.

While it sounds intimidating and many beginners dread playing barre chords, with a little practice you can master it. And the good news is this: barre chords are “moveable” shapes, which means when you have learned how to play them, it will open up the fretboard for you and you will be able to play any minor chord anywhere on the neck by memorizing the root notes on the G string. 

B minor is made up of the notes B, D, and F. To play it on the ukulele, lay your first finger across the C, E, and A strings on the second fret, and then place your third finger on the fourth fret of the G string. You then strum all four strings. The tab looks like this:

Don’t get discouraged if you are struggling to play this chord. Keep practicing. There are techniques you can learn to help you get better at getting all the strings to ring out. You can find some YouTube videos for tips, or, ideally, you will consider taking lessons with an experienced teacher who can help you get the best sound out of your instrument. 

Song List

There are many songs you can play using one or two of these three chords. Some of the songs are very simple for a beginner and some are more advanced. The best way to learn chords is to play them within the context of songs, however, so don’t let the complexity of a song scare you away. Take it as slow as you need to and practice, practice, practice! Happy strumming!

  1. I’m Yours- Jason Mraz (C, G, Am, F)
  2. Let it Be- The Beatles (C, G, Am, F)
  3. With or Without You- U2 (C, A, Bm, G)
  4. Unsteady- X Ambassador (B minor, G, D, A)
  5. Havana- Camilla Cabella (G minor, Eb, D)
  6. Lady Marmalade- Patti LaBelle (Gm, C, Cm, Dm, D7)
  7. There For You- Troy Sivan (D, B minor, F# minor, E)

I am a singer/songwriter with more than 25 years personal experience. I wrote my first song when I was 12 years old and was fsinging before I could talk. I have been playing the guitar since I was 15 years old. I studied Fine and Performing Arts at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and was featured on a few albums showcasing local musicians.
I home schooled my children for a number of years and taught a guitar class at our local home school co-op in years past.

Starting with the COVID-19 pandemic and looking at the impact of school closures on children, I decided to begin teaching online to help fill gaps in students learning and continue to provide educational and fun experiences to children now learning remotely.

As a guitar and ukulele teacher, I focus on children gaining confidence on the instrument and help them to begin playing chords from their first lesson. I teach the theoretical parts of the instrument in the context of playing and strive to have a welcoming, relaxed, and fun teaching environment. I would love to help your student develop and improve their musical skills!

9 Ukulele Chords You Should Know

C Major

Playing a C major chord on ukulele is a snap - simply hold down the third fret on the first string and strum away on all four strings. Typically, this note is played with the third (ring) finger.

Note that instructions in this feature assume the ukulele has been tuned to "standard C" tuning - G C E A. For more info on tuning, read how to tune your ukulele.

G Major

Recognize this chord shape? If you play guitar, you will... it is a D major chord shape. Because of the uke tuning, however, this translates to a G major chord. Put your first (index) finger on the second fret of the third string, your third (ring) finger on the third fret of the second string, and your second (middle) finger on the second fret of the first string. Strum all four strings.

F Major

The F major chord is a much simpler chord to play on the uke than it is on guitar. Place your second finger on the second fret of the fourth string, your first finger on the first fret of the second string, and strum all four strings.

A Minor

Another simple to play chord - to play an A minor on the ukulele, you simply need to hold down the second fret of the fourth string and strum all four strings. This note is typically played with the second (middle) finger.

E Minor

To play E minor on the ukulele, place your first (index) finger on the second fret of the first string. Next, put your second (middle) finger on the third fret of the second string. Lastly, place your third (ring) finger on the fourth fret of the third string. Strum all four strings.

D Minor

Guitar players will recognize the D minor chord shape on the ukulele - it's the same fingering as an A minor chord on guitar. Place your second (middle) finger on the second fret of the fourth string. Now, put your third (ring) finger on the second fret of the third string. Lastly, place your first (index) finger on the first fret of the second string. Strum all four strings. Note that switching the second and third fingers when playing this shape is common.

A Major

To play A major on the ukulele, place your second (middle) finger on the second fret of the fourth string. Next, put your first (index) finger on the first fret of the third string. Strum all four strings on the uke and you're playing an A major chord.

D Major

Guitarists will recognize this shape as an A major chord on the guitar, but on the ukulele, the same chord shape produces a different chord. Place your first (index) finger on the second fret of the fourth string. Next, place your second (middle) finger on the second fret of the third string. Lastly, put your third (ring) finger on the second fret of the second string. Strum all four strings and you are playing a D major chord.

E Major

To play an E major chord on the ukulele, start by placing your second (middle) finger on the fourth fret of the fourth string. Next, place your third (ring) finger on the fourth fret of the third string. Now, put your fourth (ring) finger on the fourth fret of the second string. Lastly, place your first (index) finger on the second fret of the first string. Strum all four strings and you are playing an E minor chord.
