Riptide - Vance Joy - Super Easy Beginner Ukulele Tutorial - How to play Ukulele for Beginners

Easy Version (1:30) Recording Version (5:23) Learn ukulele for free at or you can help support us grow at Alright, this is a great first song for anyone who just bought their Ukulele, so we are going to do two versions. A super easy beginner version that could be your first song. It has only three for the majority of the song with a super easy fourth chord in the bridge. The strum pattern is really basic and even if you have never played Ukulele in your life you should be able to pick this song up with little or no difficulty. The easy version is in the key of C and the song is really in the key of C#, so what does that mean for you the learner? Well, we taught two different versions of this jam, and the C# is all barre chords making it much harder (if you have problems with barre chords go to and under ukulele technique check out the barre chord section) to play, especially if you have never made barre chords. So you can do a couple of things, experienced players can skip right to the recording version, beginners can just do the easy version, or pre-intermidiate can do the easy version get it down and than progress to the more difficult version. NOT THE ENTIRE SONG - some examples to change the chords to the lyrics. Am G C (x2) Am G C I was scared of dentists and the dark, Am G C I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations, Am G C Oh all my friends are turning green, Am G C You're the magicians assistant in their dreams. Am G C Ooh, ooh ooh Am G C (hold) Ooh, and they come unstuck Am G C Lady, running down to the riptide, C Am taken away to the dark side, G C I wanna be your left hand man. Am G C I love you when you're singing that song and, C Am I got a lump in my throat 'cause G C you're gonna sing the words wrong Am G C There's this movie that I think you'll like, Am G C this guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City, Am G C this cowboy's running from himself.
