Sometimes called barre chords, these chords venture beyond the third fret.
Movable chord forms are chords with no open strings. Sometimes called barre chords, these chords are transposable by moving each note of the chord the same number of frets up and down the neck.
Each movable form is based on a common open position chord. Movable forms allow you to play chords not found in the open position and in any key.
Here is a series of 21 chord lessons , taking basic open position chords and showing their movable forms. Each lesson contains practice progressions, additional derived chords with tips and tricks for remembering the chords.
Beyond the basic open position chords that are way too many chord shapes to memorize — even on the ukulele. It's better to start learning where chords come from and how to derive chords from your known core set of chords.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
