Left-Handed Ukulele Chords (GCEA)

Left-handed ukuleles are specially designed for left-handed players, who may find it uncomfortable or difficult to play a standard right-handed ukulele.

A left-handed ukulele is essentially the same as a right-handed ukulele, but with the strings reversed so that the G string is closest to the floor when the ukulele is held in playing position.
