Guitar Chords: Is G C Am D On Guitar The Same As On Ukulele?

if so how do you do these chords?


  1. Lester G says:

    A ukulele is a fully chromatic instrument instrument so of course you can play those chords. The ukulele is not tuned the same as a guitar although the four strings on a uke have the same intervals between the strings so the chord positions stay the same as the first four strings of the guitar.

    If you’re asking if a D chord on the uke played with your fingers on the same frets as a guitar is still a D chord then no, it’s not because the ukulele is tuned to a higher pitch. It would be a G chord.
