5 guitar and ukulele chord progressions in A major with strumming - Essential Beginners and Grade 1 - 2

About the sheets

The rhythms mainly work with 8th notes and quarter notes, so playing the 8ths with a down, up strumming pattern, and the quarter notes with down strums would be a good way to strum these exercises.

Some of the notes and rests may be less familiar to beginners, so you might need to brush up on your note values with this reference sheet: Understanding Notes and Rests in Music Notation - Reference Sheet

Guitar

The A, D and E chords are used a lot in songs, so this sheet is a good way to practice changing between the chords, as well as working on rhythms.

Ukulele

The ukulele chords can be played by beginners, and more advanced players could substitute the Dsus2 and E7 chords for the full D and E chords if they wish.
