Is there a cord chart with more than the basic cords that I can download and print?
I'm into playing the Blues and I'd like to be able to make the turnarounds a little more interesting. Been playing the guitar for a few years and would like to use the Uke in the same kind of music.
thanks for any help!!
Dan

Thanks mm Stan, I'll try those sites. I live about 85miles north of NYC. Sullivan Co.
Just filed the bottom edge of the nut down cause it was bothering me when I did bars at the top of the neck. mostly the B flat. Cant wait to sit outside with some cold ones and do some strummin!!
I have a 5watt Vox(DA5) that I use when I'm just hanging out. The uke sounds really nice plugged in. I use the DA5 outside with my guitars also.

Aloha Trewblue,
I used to live in New York city...upper west side....and Brookline Mass.. your groves must have been too shallow and it was hard to fret the first couple frets..I hope it resolved your issues..
I like also to play by myself and it's the best time for creativity...yeah living and working in the 70's upper east coast..was a really fun times...hope to get back up there someday...have a
few friends I'd like to visit...and jam ukes....I played and tested a few DA5's and they are cool....wish they had a little more string spacing....but neverless fun...I dabbled in guitars when I
was yournger too... Happy Strummings Bruddah...MM stan

Chords arranged by the key of the music here http://www.praiseuke.com/blog/?page_id=10. Each page also includes the major and minor pentatonic scales that go with the key.

For old-fashioned people who use books, I strongly recommend Roy Sakuma's "Treasury of Ukulele Chords".
