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?
