The attached should be sufficient for all your chord needs.

this may be a silly question but are all the chords shown played from the nut down, if you understand what im trying to say.

yes, when there is a bold like next to the fret, thats from the nut down. hopefully you understood.

but usually it will say like 4th fret or something to notify you that its not at either the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd fret that you play the chord.

Yeah it is played from the nut down.

Maybe this C Chord diagram will help those who may not have seen that kind of chord chart:
Strings in order from left to right is GCEA:
GCEA

C CHORD
This is setup just like in the chord chart.

guitars are tuned to EADGBE. ukes are generally GCEA. so you have the G and the E in common. you can use your tuner to tune those strings and then tune the other strings to them.

C string 4th fret = E string
E string 5th fret = A string
G string 2nd fret = A string
E string 3rd fret = G string

and this:http://chordlist.brian-amberg.de/en/ukulele/standard/C/


i use the first one more often because the second one confuses me sometimes. lol. but if the first one don't have a chord i need i use the second.

Don't forget to check out

for some great info on chords and how they're made. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of finding chords. Go to the "ukulele" link at the bottom of the page.
