How to play the E on your ukulele

For the dreaded E major, we will need to use our pinky, and for many this is simply not easy to do! Take your index finger and place it on the first fret of the G string, and then put your middle finger on the second fret of the A string. Then we need to stretch our pinky up to the fourth fret of the C string. The hand will be in a claw shape at the end and the stretch will feel a little awkward. Here muting strings isn’t as much an issue as the distance of the stretch. Some players will have better luck with the 4442 version of E major below. Both will require plenty of patience and practice.
