View Full Version : Guitar player playing a ukulele

I'm not sure whether to put this in the guitar section or the uke section but how many guitar players here are deciding to buy and play a uke? I am assuming since you joined the UU that you all play uke as well. Here's my question. I gather all of you know that the chord forms you use on guitar work on the uke except that you are a 5th out in pitch i.e. you play a G on the guitar but when you use that form on a uke it's a C. So........how many of you re-write the chords over the lyrics in "guitar" chords to make it easier to follow along when playing your uke?

Nope, I just relearned the new chord names. I wasn't that good at guitar in the first place, so it wasn't that big a deal.

Although I have found it pretty easy to follow along with a guitar player. I see the chord they play on guitar and play the corresponding Uke chord in it's place. It turns out to not be as hard as I thought.
