Free Chord Builder (in color): Click the image to the left to download this ten-page, interactive (hyperlinked) tool. It overlays colored circles over the Complete Ukulele C-Tuning Edition's Key of G Major/E minor page, so you can see how each of the six main chords in G Major are built all up and down the fretboard. Each of the six chords has it's own page, showing all the locations of the notes that make each chord. There's also page that shows, all at once, where the notes from the 3 main Major chords (the I, IV, and V chords) are found all over the fretboard. There's a page showing the three minor chords (ii, iii, and vi) simultaneously as well.
Standard Notation Jig (High-G string/re-entrant tuning version): This tool comes from page 8 of the Complete Ukulele C-Tuning Edition. You can use it to see how the notes of a soprano, concert, and tenor ukulele (tuned with "reentrant tuning", where the top G string is higher pitched than the 3 string) match up with the notes of a piano. You can use it to see which notes are in the same octave on different strings (any notes that have the same colored background). If you're interested in using sheet music to play a melody, you can also use it to see where the notes on a treble clef are found all over the fretboard.
Ukulele CAGFD Jig (NEW): This tool shows how to use the shapes of C Major, A Major, G Major, F Major, and D Major chords to play G Major chords up the fretboard using the Essential Ukulele C-Tuning Edition's Key of G Major page.
These same patterns can be used for ALL THE MAJOR CHORDS!

Standard Notation Jig (Low-G string version): This tool is just like the one above, but it shows the tuning with the G string tuned an octave lower than reentrant tuning. (This tuning requires a special, thicker-gauged string). This "Low-G" tuning loses some of the "ukulele sound", but it allows a wider range of melody notes. I guess everything is a trade-off. :-)
