I'm trying to learn to play She and Him's Why Do You Let Me Stay Here, but the only tabs I can find are guitar tabs, and I can't for the life of me find out the equivalent of a G sharp on ukulele. Help, please!

I'm still not really up to date with all the uke lingo. :< Care to explain in simple, beginner terms?

If you need any chord go to www.ukulele.nl it's a very good chordfinder. just make sure you choose the right tuning (either soprano C or tenor C) on the right below the pitch pipe.

Good luck!

The key trick to know is that a G# is the same thing as an Ab. Some chord charts will only use one of the two names, which can make it seem like it's tough to find the chord.

C# = Db
D# = Eb
F# = Gb
G# = Ab
A# = Bb

G# chord - 5343 - bar3rd fret, middle finger Estring 4th fret, ring finger gstring 5th fret .

Or x343. Dampen the G. Some beginners may find the stretch to 5343 a bit awkward.

Meaning:
x - G/4th string = x (dampen)
.... or 5 - a finger on the 5th fret; (I use my pinky here)
3 - C/3rd string 3rd fret (1st finger)
4 - E/2nd string 4th fret (3rd or ring finger)
3 - A/1st string 3rd fret. (2nd finger)

Same shape as a G chord moved one fret higher (towards the soundhole). But that's why the x/5 - you have to account for the 4th string.

Many thanks. This chord is present in Formby's Cleaning Windows, and since it's quite a fast chord-changing song it's a pain to get. I'm getting away with using the G chord shape one fret up, as mentioned here.
