My daughter wanted to learn to play the ukulele. We signed her up for a class, but it's not exactly what she wants: a lot of cultural information, less instruction on how to actually play the instrument. I've been trying to supplement at home as I look for another a better match for her. She wants to learn to play songs, but she has difficulty keeping an even strum and only can play a one-finger chord (C). Any tips on games and fun ways I can help her learn to play a song? What one song chords do you know? Anyone know of any good resources on teaching ukulele for kids?
