How to Play a D7 Chord on Ukulele

Learn how to play the D7 chord on ukulele from music teacher Jarret Delos Santos in this Howcast video.


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. Okay, we're gonna learn how to play D7. And there's 2 ways of playing D7. There is the traditional way, where you put your index finger over all of your strings on your 2nd fret, and your 2nd finger or your ring finger places over the 1st string on the 3rd fret. And it'll sound like this. For a lot of the students, that may be real difficult, because it is requires a lot of holding on here. There is a simpler way, where you put your finger over the 4th string and the 2nd string on the 2nd fret, and it sounds like this. There's not a whole lot of difference. There are...again there are 2 types of D7. I play both, so, and I prefer, actually, the one that requires only 2 fingers. It's easier for a lot of people.
