    I keep playing my friends ukulele's and I've decided I am going to buy one myself. I was just wondering if you can play songs using guitar chords. This is quite hard to get across but for example; the chords for keep fishin by Weezer on guitar are B, E, C#, F#. If I found out how to play these chords on the ukulele would it be the same?or are the chords completely different?

    Cheers Dewi

    The chords would sound the same but would obviously not be the same pattern/pitch as on the guitar fretboard.

    i.e. guitar = EADGBE and uke = GCEA

    I got a ukelele for Xmas with previous knowledge of playing the guitar. You can play all the same chords as those on the guitar but they are all higher pitched than on the guitar. So if u were to play the same ukelele chords over the same guitar chords, it would still sound great. I recommend getting one, I've not put it down since I got it. Btw learn Noah and the wale-5 years time
