It depends a great deal on the genre of music you want to play. Some classic favorites that are often played on the ukulele:

Somewhere Over the Rainbow/It's a Wonderful World medley made famous by Brudder Iz.

Hey Soul Sister - by Train

Any of the standard Hawaiian Songs

You can find thousands of songs on YouTube and similar sites to give you ideas and to help you find something you like.

Chordie probably has the most music. Many of the songs can be transposed from guitar to ukulele.

If you are looking for music to listen to, there are many Hawaiian music CD's available. YouTube contains many videos of ukulele music, complete with instructions on how to play them. There are some great performances out there as well! Look for the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain! They are simply amazing! If you want tabs for Ukulele Music, there are many sites out there as well. I've provided a couple of llinks below.

There are many songs that require knowing only two or three chords. Once you get the strumming pattern that you like down, they are easy to sing along to. There are a couple of websites linked below with books of simple songs for ukulele, some with chord tabs.

If there are a million songs, you can certainly play them. The ukulele will have at least 48 different notes that you can play, giving it a pretty wide range.

George Harrison played the ukulele on many songs. For his last album he played a track on the ukulele for every song.

There are tons of amazing ukulele songs, if i could give you three great ones off of the top of my head for a beginner i would probably say, Build Me Up, Buttercup, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and i personally like playing the song Santeria. There are dozens of easy songs with only a few chords that can be learned quickly that sound great. For a classic ukulele song, Aloha Oe is famous and recognized by almost everyone.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain uses them exclusively. Many Hawaiian groups concentrate on the ukulele.

There are lots of sites with songs that only require two or three chords to play. If you search for ukulele songbooks in most search engines, you will find many sites.

I'm looking for it too. The songs that I know are Country Road and Free.

Any song you want to! All music is made up of notes and the ukulele can play over 50 notes.

There are copyright laws. Depending on the songs the tabs are legal to post in some countries and not legal in others.

Sure, you can pretty much do any of them on Ukulele. Look up sweetafton23 on YouTube and look for her version of Pokerface. She uses ukulele, piano, table and Pocketsynth.

Yes, there are heaps of sites dedicated to the ukulele.An excellent site is Ukulele Underground. Here you can learn how to play the ukulele free of charge by watching weekly video lessons taught by Ukulele virtuoso Aldrine Guerrero. My top pick is Ukulele Underground, it caters for beginners as well as those who are a little more advanced.I started off on the ukulele with an Online Ukulele tuner to tune up.I then found the chords to accompany my favourite songs on Chordie.Once you're getting the hang of chords you can visit Beatles Site, which is a lot of fun. It teaches you to play lots of popular songs by The Beatles and has the melody and chords playing for you to listen to, as well as the chord names and diagrams.Uke Cast has great music, Uke Tips and lots of links to all sorts of Ukulele sites for learning and touching base with other Ukulele players.

The oldest and the most famous would be the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. There are others that have developed over the years including the Langley Ukulele Orchestra and the United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra.

Pretty much any of them! There are 19 songs available on Chordie. The trick is to find songs that you like and that match your voice.
