Frequently asked questions

Why does UkeAbility exist?

I wanted to discover new songs, using chords I already knew. Also, I wanted to better use the terrific books that are available for the ukulele.

What ukulele should I use to play these chords?

The chord diagrams are for instruments tuned in the key of C. C is the standard tuning of soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles.

Why don't you have more books available?

Do you have any connection to the books, their authors or the book publishers?

No, I'm just a big fan who would like to see people make the most of the books. This is an educational resourse for myself and others.
