Exploring Jazz Chords on Ukulele


Exploring contemporary 4-part, a.k.a. "Jazz" chord on ukulele all start with the Big Six, Core Chords. You most likely know the open position chords they're based on.

From the Six core chords that are the Big Six and the principles of chord construction along with learning the notes of the ukulele fingerboard, you WILL be able to create ANY chord you come across just from the name.

These jazz chords are simply 4-part contemporary chords that find their way in a lot of music - not just jazz.

The Big Six Core Chords are: Seventh, Minor Seventh, Major Seventh, Diminished Seventh, Half-Diminished Seventh, Augmented Seventh

From these six chords you'll never be at a loss looking for that individual chord you need.

Posting My Music to Bandcamp

Published: May 1, 2020

Was checking out Abe Deshotel's music on Bandcamp and thought. "I should finally get my stuff up there." Bandcamp is doing right by musicians and not taking any cut during the first Friday of each month. And, in general the take a lot less then the other streaming services.

Back to Abe's music. Really nice stuff. You should check it out.

Abe also host a podcast" Abe's Ukulele Podcast. Check that out.

And, while you on Bandcamp checkout my music.

Thanks, Curt

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
