There's a lot of songs you know that are just two or three chords. If you start with songs you know it can be easier. As far as which ones, maybe someone else has ideas on the easiest to start with.

Hi Elena,

One of the best resources is Justin Sandercore's wesbite (
You do not need to pay to learn but I highly recommend purchasing the songbook, at a later stage, as a way of supporting the site and Justin's efforts.

Hi, Elena
When I first started, the source to my learning was Youtube. I started learning and playing around with simple chords. Then I look for songs with ukulele tutorial. You eventually get used to the chords as you practice and practice. My first song was "cheap date" by Lateya.
Just search up ukulele tutorials for songs that you would like to learn or song that you like on Youtube
