I am trying to teach my violin students some baritone ukulele! Your one chord pdfs with color drawings and standard notation and chord in corner and map of the country of origin are going to be awesomely helpful. I love your clear, colorful, accurately chorded, multi-verse charts. Thank you for beautiful work. Clara Wieck, Ukulele Teacher, Montana
