  2. Claudette Brand

    Hi brand new to ukulele and this site. What are the “+” and “-” numbers for?

    • cluelessbeginner

      same! i just assume things when i play……..or ask for help

    • Cupcake145

      Transposing += up, -= down

    • ooopsnevermind

      @Claudette: They refer to the yellow buttons at the top next to Transpose, which transpose the chords (move them all up, or all down, by a certain number of half steps). The effect of this is to change the key of the song, and picking a certain transposition can sometimes make the chords much easier to play.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
