Like I said, as I get the time to put these together I will share them with you. Today’s chord du jour is the F major shape bar chord which has its root note on the second string, the E string as shown in the diagram below. Have fun strumming!
Okay my ‘ukulele ‘ohana, here is my next installment of bar chords for the uke. This one is using the open position form of the A major chord shape. The diagram shows that you only bar the first and second strings with your first finger, but in practice I bar strings 1, 2 and 3 because that makes it easier to quickly change from for example Bb major to Bb minor. I will share diagrams for some minor chord forms too once I get them completed.
Have you been using bar chords when you play the uke and how is it working for you?
Want to build your own ‘ukulele? Check out my series on how I built my own cigar box uke.
This has been helpful to me, having first played the guitar and being used to using bar chords got me thinking it would be helpful to know how to use and play moveable bar chords on the ukulele. So here is an example of how it works when using the form for a C major chord played in the open position as you move it on down the neck. I will post some other bar chord forms in the future as I create the charts.
