the only stupid question is a question not asked.

or

a question asked without doing a search to see that the same question was asked 50 million times on the same forum. haha.

sorry i dont know the answer. i dont think ive ever seen c high on a song.

got a link to where you saw this? maybe with the context of the actual song someone will be able to answer it better. as we all know, there are several ways to play a C chord on both guitar and uke. maybe that has something to do with it.

If you saw "High C" on a local sheet music website, it probably means play the C chord that looks like this


GCEA
5433


instead of the 'C' where you just hold the 3rd fret on the bottom string

There is no chord called High C, so its definitely not a technical term. Can you link to where you saw that?

Yup that c(high) means that C chord that like a Bb moved up a step. I used to run a local sheet music website and I remember people submitting things with that.
