Yep, more good news.
The same shape and theory works at fret 3 for the E-flat chord.
Here’s a secret tip: you can keep moving the barre up the neck and get new, ever-higher chords–just keep muting the first string.
So we have:
Fret 2: D
Fret 3: Eb
Fret 4: E
(Those are the common ones. This next batch, you usually make using other shapes, but you can use the barre and just keep going. Sometimes this can give a new sound to your playing).
Fret 5: F
Fret 6: F#
Fret 7: G
Fret 8: G#
Fret 9: A
(And, yes, I really do go that high sometimes, even on a little soprano ukulele!).
Here’s how to apply The Shape to create (the hated) E-flat chord, to play some groovy Kink’s riffs:
