12 of the Best Ukulele Arrangements to Strum and Sing

Ukulele is one of the easiest, most cost-effective (and fun!) instruments to learn, for both kids and adults. It's highly portable, the nylon strings are gentle on your hands, and many chords can be played with just one or two fingers. If you're looking for a new hobby, you can't go wrong with the uke!

We offer hundreds of ukulele arrangements for every musical taste, and these 12 are a great place to start. The chords are very accessible, even for beginners, so grab your ukulele and start strumming!
