The Ultimate C Chord
You can’t play this chord on many other stringed instruments other than the ukulele. This is the ultimate C chord with only two C notes. In high G, C tuning three are the exact same C notes and a middle C.
(Curt: Had to guess about how to show three of the same notes in the same staff. Seems music notation programs I have can only handle two. Tried all three of my music notations programs: Sibelius, Notion, and MuseScore.

Ukulele Chord a Day, January 1st - C
What better way than to start the new year off with learning a new ukulele chord every day of the year. The chord for January 1st is C.
The C chord is typically the first chord all new ukulele players learn, uses a single finger and is relatively easy to play on ukulele. The C chord is a major chord type and the most common chord type. The major part of the chord is seldom written and almost never pronounced - simply say C.
The C chord is responsible for getting more people hooked on the ukulele than any other chord. Even if you already know this C chord I've included a lot more information regarding the C Chord. So take a look and around.
In the common keys of C, F, and G - C functions as a "primary" chord.

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
