Baritone Ukulele

Baritone Ukulele chords

The Baritone Ukulele is tuned like the top four stings of a guitar (DGBE) and guitar chord diagrams minus the bottom two strings will give you the chords for the Baritone Ukulele - the same technique as taught in the converting chords lesson.

If you put a capo on the fifth fret of a guitar you would take the top four strings to GCEA, (up four stops) which is the tuning for ukuleles other than Baritone.

So, following on from the previous paragraph, if you put a ukulele capo on the fifth fret of your Baritone Ukulele you would have the same pitch as the music included on this website.

If you follow the music and the chord positions without a capo you will be able to play the music (the bass notes will be very low). To get the same pitch on a Baritone ukulele you will have to put a capo on the fifth fret to transpose it by four stops, or you can use a barré on the fifth fret.
