Hi everyone I have a question hopefully someone can answer. If I am playing my guitar and say I'm playing em c d g for example is there a program which will work out what chords they would be on a uke so the two instruments could play together? Hope this makes sense

Chords are the same - nothing changes musically.

The guitar plays a C, the uke plays a C - no transposition, nothing fancy. Guitar plays Em, uke plays Em, etc...

So in your example, the guitar plays Em C D G - the uke player doesn't change the chords at all - the uke just plays Em C D G right along with the guitar.

Now if you want a program to show you the different chord shapes (where to put your fingers) between the uke and guitar, try this (http://tabtransposer.com/). Put your progression in, and then switch the instrument to the one you want.

It will also let you change the key of the progression (transpose), but there is no need for that just to play with a guitarist.

I wrote my TabTransposer (http://tabtransposer.com/) exactly for this purpose.
