EDIT: i didn't realize there was another post about sites. this can be moved.



i don't know if everyone is familiar with the site http://www.sheep-entertainment.nl/ukulele/index.html

it's an interactive interface which has been a great tool since i first started playing. i reference back to it once in a while when i want some new flavor.

play around with it and you'll love it. make sure that you click the tuning on the right that corresponds to you. (it also makes a great tuner if you don't have one!) i haven't been able to get the play along songs to work yet, but i haven't tried too hard.

i hope this is helpful to some or all of you.

ya i use that site now. prior to that, i used http://www.thesediments.com/ukechord.html , which does the same thing but uses java. also, if you want to see other chord shapes going up the fretboard, keep pressing the button for your chord and it'll show variations :D

That's you? I love that site, which I use for guitar also. Thanks a lot. I use the Sheep one often as well.

there's a couple applications (freeware) on download.com

GREAT for working your scale exercises! Visually nice... the 2nd programs ok, more geared towards beginner beginner tho', but still a good and free source!

my 2 cents! :D

Hey everyone. If you use the sheep-entertainment site to find chords, a little helpful tip is to download it and install it on your computer. That way, you dont have to be online to use it. Download on left hand side of the screen.

In my opinion, what makes the site so nice is that you can set the finger positions yourself, and it checks what chord equivalent that is. Chord charts are abound on the internets, but this really helped me out when I couldn't remember the chord names and finger positions in a progression someone showed me. Might also be useful when looking at videos etc. to find out what chords are being played.

When I first learned to play the ukulele I discovered an fantastical web page that has a great chord finding program along with a lovely list of songs that one could learn on the uke. The songs have a wonderful play along program as well
Uke players of every level of skill should check this one out!

I love your initiative, berylbite, but we've already got that link in a stickied thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1139). You rule for sharing, though! :worship:

i'm a little confused. when clicking the same chord over it changes but i'm not sure what to. for example on tenor, i recognize AM, (4th string 2nd fret), but when i click the button again it adds a 1st string/3rd fret. can someone explain this?

They are optional fingerings of the chord and they allow you to play up and down the fretboard.

The Sheep Entertainment chord finder can also be downloaded for local use. Nice to have around in the age of portable computers. A link is on the left side of the chord finder page.

I constantly use the "sheep" page, I need it for when my brain farts and I forget what a F chord is ><

It's amazing all the things I find here at UU. The interactive chord chart is a huge help!!! Thank you!

Great sites, all, and bookmarked in my computer.
But I wish one had some of the "odd" chords - like A11 - or that you could select both augmented and sevenths together. Stuff that may be off the radar for most of us, but crop up now and then in old song sheets.
