The Four Chord Simple Songbook

Hundreds of Songs, Four Simple Chords, One Beautiful Songbook

  • My Story


    Growing up, I quit the piano 4 times, quit the guitar 2 times, and also quit the drums and violin. Music was more like forced labor than anything else. "Fun" was the last word that came to mind.
  • The Night That Changed My Life

    All of this changed for me when I attended a musical performance put on by two ukulele players and their sidekick bass player. Their music was simple, but these guys had FUN!
  • Finally Having Fun With Music!

    It left such an impression on me that I went home that night and ordered my first ukulele. I discovered that learning ukulele chords was very easy, allowing me to quickly play the songs that I WANTED to play (as opposed to the piano songs that I was TOLD to play). I was actually having fun with music!
  • My Mission

    After years of enjoying the simplicity of the ukulele, I wanted to show people who had given up on learning an instrument (like I had) how easy and fun it can be. Thus, Four Chord Simple was born!

More Than Your Typical Songbook

  • 1. Finding The Right Songs

    First, I have to search high and low to find songs that can be played with just C, G, Am, and F. In most cases, I have to transpose songs into the right key even just to figure out if they are compatible or not.

  • 2. Ensuring Accuracy

    Once I find a song that will work, I listen to the song to ensure the lyrics I’ve copied over are accurate. Often, the lyrics are inaccurate or incomplete, requiring careful edits.

  • 3. Ensuring Alignment

    Next I have to match up the chords with the lyrics, which is the most time consuming part of the process since the chords shift when being pasted over. Sometimes I have to make serious adjustments to inaccurate or incomplete chords.

  • 4. Inserting Strum Patterns

    Because I know that many of my followers want to strum along with me, I've taken the time to carefully type up the strum patterns I use and insert them into the lyrics and chords of each song.

  • 5. Formatting

    Finally, I adjust the formatting to be consistent throughout the songbook. I want it to look really nice and professional for you. I hope you enjoy it! 😊

Your Support is Greatly Appreciated!


The suggested donation for my songbook is $10, but you can certainly pay more or less than that. Think of it like sending me a tip, whatever you can afford is more than appreciated.

I’m hopeful that Four Chord Simple can one day provide the income necessary to support my growing family, giving me the freedom to spend more time with my two cute little boys.

Unfortunately YouTube doesn’t pay much for my videos, especially because all of them are cover videos, which means much of the ad revenue goes to the song’s copyright owner instead of me.

Other YouTuber’s use Patreon to encourage donations, but I wanted to do something different that would provide you with a valuable resource without you having to commit to a monthly donation.

In this way, I’m hopeful that the songbook will be of great benefit to you while supporting my family and supporting my mission to make learning the ukulele fun and easy.

Thank you for supporting me! I hope you enjoy my songbook!

Your ukulele pal,

Andrew
