The Ukulele Wheel has a rotating front cover, displaying the 7 In Key chords in the open window. The Key is set by locating the Root or starting note or chord in the Number 1 position. The 3 chords displayed in the Outer Window shows the 3 In Key Major Chords. The Inner Window displays the 4 In Key Minor Chords. As the top cover is rotated, a new set of In Key Chords are progressively displayed.
Each chord in the open window displays the finger position from the Nut (think black bar running vertically) with each note making up the chord being color coded so we know which finger is on which note. The notes on the Nut indicate the open strings notes, played as is.
Using the Ukulele Wheel to learn chords does numerous things at the same time. Learning chords In Key brings our ear along for the ride, developing our Aural (hearing) skills as we go. If we start with the Key of C by locating the 1 Root on the C note, learn these 7 chords we have access to 100’s if not 1000’s of songs written in the Key of C.
Once we have a handle on these 7 chords, simply rotate the Ukulele Wheel to the next Key “G” learn 2 new chords and an entirely new Key, giving us access to even more songs.
