    Hi everyone, new here, I’ve been playing for a few months now and seem to be able to play most chords okay. However, when I transition between let’s say Em to a D I feel like the ukulele starts to slip/fall and I need to balance it sort of with my palm/ top of the index finger.

    Any tips or suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? I’ve seen the intro videos on holding the ukulele and I feel like I’m holding it and positioning it fine but it’s like I just wish I’m using a strap to be able to transition between chords faster and smoother. I must be doing something wrong.

    Thanks

    The trick is creating neck stability through the index finger by using form 2.

    Give that a try and if you need extra help, please post a video of you playing and I’ll be happy to confirm no other issues are present 🙂
