About this Book
The baritone ukulele is tuned differently to the soprano and concert ukuleles.
The tuning is the same as the four top strings on a guitar.
A guitar is tuned EADGBE
The Baritone Uke is tuned EADGBE
If you can play the guitar, you can already play the baritone ukulele.
Be warned though, you might never play your guitar again!

This book is, basically, a lot of diagrams to show you the chords you might use as you play your music.
Each chord diagram is colour-coded. After a bit of practice you will get your fingers moving into the right
positions really quickly. Where possible, I have limited the shapes of chords so that, by learning one, you
learn many.
For example.

Fm F#m Gm G#m
