Washtub Jerry presents a system of "graphic arrangements" that teaches the student the physical patterns of I, IV, V, 7th, and minor chords that can be used anywhere on the ukulele neck.

 

His course presents simple concepts and techniques for finding the correct key (the 1 chord) and other important chords in a song. 

 

The success of this course is based on the concept of "Neighborhood Familiarity" by Washtub Jerry.
