Day 3 Music Theory - Why these chords?

The chords listed above are all in what musicians call the 'key of C'. A musical 'key' is like a family of chords that sound right in any progression. Just like some colours go together well, so do some chords go together well, but also many do not. This is another reason why I recommend you learn fewer chords and more songs with the few chords you know so you can make the most of all the early days of playing your Ukulele or any instrument you can play chords on.
