    If you go to post 5, you'll be able to read an explanation. Keep on reading in the thread and you'll get more information.

    Love this Mammoth chart. Been looking for one like this for a year.

    Thanks for digging up this old thread and I printed the sheet just for fun. I think that about 98.5% of the music we play on ukes lives in the top section with keys between one flat and three sharps. But who ever ventures in to the world of keys with five or six sharps of flats?

    This is a great thread. It should keep bubbling up. I understand the circle but sometimes I get confused. I guess being old causes that. What I need now is a chart like this for Baritone Ukulele tuned DGBE. Is one available?

    Should this be made into a "sticky"?

    Great thread and chart and interesting discussion over the years.

    Chord progressions (1 4 5 and permutations) themselves work very well but if we look at a Major progression at what works then for one we see:-

    1 Maj
    2 min
    3 min
    4 Maj
    5 Maj
    6 min
    7 dim

    Is typical, just try it and see how it sounds to you.

    Now for a minor progression

    1 min
    2 dim
    3 Maj
    4 min
    5 min
    6 Maj
    7 Maj

    Again give it a try.

    Here's the fifths pattern mapped directly onto the fretboard. Notice that I've drawn the arrows to point in the "up a fourth, down a fifth" direction (counter-clockwise on the circle diagram), since that's how roots move in standard fifths progressions, the most common application of this pattern. If you follow the pattern in the opposite direction, you're going clockwise on the circle diagram or, in terms of progressions, "backcycling".

    I think I see what you’re saying. I’ll try it out. Thanks.

    How and what? I'm pretty confused about what is being asked here.

    Are you saying to just try playing the progression of chords with their corresponding qualities in relation to the Major and minor scales?
    For example, for a C-Major progression, playing the chords: C Maj --> d min --> e min --> F Maj --> G Maj --> a min --> b dim

    Am I getting that right?
