What are these squares? / CHORD DIAGRAM

Hello, friends of the ukuleleria, here Karen!

Many of you who are already ready to play songs wonder a lot how chord diagrams are read, well, for all of you here is a little help ...

So let's talk about the diagrams ... How do you read them? What does each thing represent? Well, for you to understand you must first see them and then we will talk more about them, here you have the major chords.

Exactly, all those little chord boxes have a way to read, here I am going to help you understand various things about these diagrams.

The main thing you should know is that the grid represents the frets of the ukulele and the strings.

This grid is used to locate where and which finger can be used for chord formation.

The next thing we have to know are the points with numbers inside ...

That black point means where you are going to put the pressure to form the chord, the number indicates which finger you are going to use ...

INDEX: 1

MEDIUM: 2

CANCEL: 3

PINK: 4

So, for the example we just used, you are going to use the number 2 that corresponds to the middle finger.

Now, what you should also know is that the top is always going to be the first fret, that is ... What you have to do is mentally flip the image like this ...

Taking this example of the G (Sol) chord you can make the chord leaving the first fret without notes, then on the doa fret you must put your finger 1 (index) on string 3, your finger 2 (middle) and finally your finger 3 (Cancel) on the string 2.

So the chord will look something like this ...

You know the most basic of this, then we can talk about how a chord is formed and why you play respective notes there!

I hope that the blog has a little to know how to read the diagrams!

Good Life!
