These are the basic open position minor ʻukulele chords you might need to use in a song. They are shown here with a diagram, picture of a fretting hand holding the chord, and the tab readout for the shape.
This minor chord shape leans on a barre across the 3rd fret. Use your index finger to press down all the strings and then your ring finger on the 5th fret. (The number next to the chord diagram shows what fret it starts on.)
