There are two ways you can strum the Ukulele
1. The most recommended way to strum the uke (ukulele) is by pressing your index finger and thumb together. The top of the nail on your index finger should be touching the strings while the nail of your thumb is also touching the strings
2. Another way you can strum the uke is by strumming with your thumb, but it’s better to learn how to strum with your index finger because you can learn more uke tricks by using this method
When you play the Uke your index finger is called "Finger 1", your middle finger is "Finger 2", your ring finger is "Finger 3", and the little finger is "Finger 5". When you strum all the strings on the Uke you play chord. When you press different frets spaces then you get different chords. Fret 1 is the fret space closest to the nut of the uke and Fret 14 is the farthest from the nut. When you play different chords you use differenct fingerings some can feel more strange than others.
