Most chord charts that I see have, for example, one fingering for C, G, Am, etc. Are there any charts that show the various possibilities for C all the way up the neck, F up the neck, etc?

You want Roy Sakuma's Treasury of Ukulele Chords (http://www.amazon.com/Treasury-Ukulele-Chords-Roy-Sakuma/dp/0966289706/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1299182589&sr=8-1).

Or else online, check here (http://www.ukulelestrummers.com/). Scroll down the left sidebar; there are links for first, second, and third position chords.

If you send me a private message with an email address I'll mail you some pdf chord charts I put together.

Another easy way is to go to to http://www.ukulele.nl/chordfinder.php and you can click on any chord and every time you click on the chord again it will show you the placement of the chord up the fret. Neat way to see various shapes for a chord at various frets. I don't know that you can print them out, so spookefoote's offer is good for a printed version to have in front of you. Lozark

Thanks lozarkman, I had bookmarked the chordfinder site, but didn't realise you could click again to get the other positions, neat!!!

Invest in the book "Fretboard Roadmap" by Sokolow & Beloff.
You will learn the theory about chord movement as well as the chord shapes.
It is one of the most useful resources that all levels of player can use.
For me trying to learn all the chord positions was tough, but became a manageble task when I learned the theory.

I created a ukulele chord library tool with variations here: http://www.ukuleletricks.com/ukulele-chords/

Still a work in progress, but I tried to get the "main" chords posted.

Check out the "M" and "BOX" pdfs on this page http://www.praiseuke.com/blog/?page_id=10. That will give you the "movable" or "closed" chords which, of course, are good all the way up the neck.
