Hi all,

http://www.muffin.net.nz/muffin/Pdf_Tablature_files/albatross.pdf

In the above tab I notice the following: C/G. I've seen this sort of format in other tunes I have been learning and I am confused about what two chords separated by a / means.

Otherwise this is a perfect tune for a lazy day on the uke

It is just one chord: a chord of C, but with a G in the bass. Not easy to do on a uke (easy on a guitar) so just play C. If you had a bass playing with you, it would play the note G.

Hello,

I recently bought a cheap ukulele and for now, I am pretty happy with it. I also learnt guitar for a short time but I have got into the ukulele much more than guitar. One problem which is annoying me is the fact that, no matter how perfectly I tune it in, most of the strings become sharp on the first and second fret. Is this something to do with the height of the strings?

It is most likely caused by the nut being too high.
