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. Ok, we are going to learn how to play the chord B-flat. It is one of the most difficult chords to learn when you first beginning how to play ukulele, but it is a very common chord that you should learn and you do that by placing your index finger over the first two strings on your first fret, your second finger on the second fret on the third string, and then the last finger goes over the fourth string on the third fret and your b-flat just sound like this (plays b-flat) At first when you first play it, it all sound very muffled and very very difficult to hold it, also when you hold your instrument, its good to put some backing in the back of the neck with your thumb here, makes it a lot more easier when you hold it correctly like that. (plays b-flat again) That's B-flat.
