This page shows example usage of rpsoft 2000 software "musicord" for ukulele chord applications.  To view the main page of this software and view its main characteristics, view it here at:  musicord.


Ukulele Chords in new Musicord version 3.0


While earlier Musicord programs tried to show ukulele chords using a guitar reference, in version 3.0 ukulele is addressed separately and directly.  The ukuleles are shown as 4 stringed instruments and a number of preset tunings are provided.  Both right handed and left handed viewings are addressed.  If none of the preset ukulele tunings work for you, you can set or retune any string to another string of your choice.  You can even save custom tunings.  If you were to have a 5 string ukulele or 6 string (we have never heard of those options yet ourselves), you could also create custom tunings for those instruments.

The above shows the musicord screen for an E major ukulele chord, but this display is for a "D" tuned left handed ukulele with a capo or bar chord at the fifth fret.



Chords Recognized / Created

28 chords in all, including:  major, minor, major 6th, minor 6th, 7th, major 7th, minor 7th, mmaj7th, major 9th, minor 9th, major 11th, minor 11th, major 13th, minor 13th,diminished, augmented (also called + or +5), major 6 with no 5, minor 6th with no 5, 5, -5, 7-5, sus 2, sus (sus 4 no 3), sus4 (3 no 5), sus 4 (5 and 3), 7 sus 4, 7 maj 5, 6th add 9.

Stored Ukulele Presets and Tuning  (available for right or left hand viewing)


Standard Tuning, C tuning, G tuning, D tuning, Soprano Ukulele, Concert Ukulele, Tenor Ukulele, Baritone Ukulele.  (note that some of these tunings will in fact be the same string tunings.  Multiple names were provided since you may be familiar with either the tuning name or its key).


Unique Tunings and Storage of Favorite Tunings


If none of the above preset tunings will work for you, Musicord also allows you to adjust each string to any chromatic note you wish.  And you can use this feature with 4 string, 5 string and 6 string musical instruments.  If you are an artist who often uses several different tunings, you can store your custom tunings and they will be available to you as options under the Musical Family "Custom".

Fingering Options

Dark gray areas show the primary (lowest possible) fingering.  Light gray areas show duplicate fingering that could be substituted if the person wishes.  For example, one could substitute a light gray C note fingering for a dark gray C note fingering.  Substitutes may make the fingering easier, or make for a better sound in the particular circumstance.

Options allow one to see fingerings down the ukulele neck by using a “capo” option.

Notes to Chords

One can also enter notes on the piano keyboard or the guitar / ukulele fret board, and then see if the software program recognizes the chord.  If it does, the program will show the chord name, (piano chord or ukulele chord) and any alternates, in the data area.

What if one wants to see ukulele fingering for a combination of notes that are not one of the 28 listed chords?  Entering the notes on the piano keyboard will show the note fingering on the ukulele fret board even if it is not one of the 28 chords.
