Mahalo to our expert JDS for teaching us how to play the ukulele in these Howcast videos.
Aloha, my name is Jarret Delos Santos and I was born and raised in a little town called Hana on the east side of Maui. Playing the ukulele and teaching the ukulele gives me a chance to perpetuate our culture. So today, we're going to be talking about the ukulele. We're going to be learning how to play "Happy Birthday." This is probably going to be your very very first song that you're going to play for someone. Very easy. It only takes four notes. And it's in the chord of C. You're going to be using C, C7, F, and G7. And F is played on the first fret, second string, and the fourth string on the second fret. That's your F. So it starts off at C. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Heather. Happy birthday to you.
