Below are some Audio clips (thanks to Seth Connelly for the recording session at Humming Lake Studio in Brookline NH) and click  here.  for a printout of some.

 

Listen to The Kukuleles performing El Condor Pasa at the Nashua Ukulele Picnic in 2014.  The chords are easy,  Am and C for the verse, and then F and C for the chorus. We used some fingerpicking, thumb picking and strumming in an Even rhythm.  You can print the chords and lyrics HERE.

Just an example of another strum! 

This Bob Dylan song, You Ain't Goin' Nowhere, is also very easy on the ukulele, using C, Dm, F, C  in a repeating pattern, done with the Shuffle strum. Print the chords/lyrics HERE

 

Soon I'll add some videos of the shuffle strum and the even strum for you!   Enjoy your ukulele!
