The Ukulele Playing Guitarist

If you play guitar you can also play the ukulele. The chord shapes for the uke are the same as strings 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the guitar. However, the chords pitch is not the same. The chords on the uke are a 4th interval higher. For example, if you play a G chord shape on uke, the chord is actually C. Another way to think about uke is to put a capo on the 5th fret of the guitar. If you capo the 5th fret of the guitar you will have the same chords as the uke. Because I am well acquainted with the guitar fingerboard, when I play uke, I am actually thinking about a guitar with the capo on the 5th fret.
