All the numbers represent the fret. For example: 3 will be on the 3rd fret (first dotted fret), 5 will be the 5th fret (2nd dotted fret), and 0 will be open string (don’t play any fret).
0 3 5
0 3 6 5
0 3 5
Many songs use what musicians call “Slash” Chords. No, this isn’t named after Slash, it’s a reference to the combination of chords used to make one single chord. For instance, a C/G is a chord that has C qualities but with a G in the bass.
Understanding how to read these chords is simple – the letter to the left of the slash is the type of chord – so in this case it is “C” chord (aka a C major chord). The note to the right of the slash is the bass note in the chord - a “G” in this circumstance. So, a C/G chord is a C major chord with the note G in the bass. If you study the chord in part three, you can clearly see the C major chord, with the G on the third fret of the sixth string also being fretted in the bass.
What I love about these chords is they all sound great together and are fairly easy to play! Here are a few more to jam on.
For great examples of these type of chords in action check out Wonderwall by Oasis.

Hey shredders! Today I wanted to show you how easy it is to play ukulele if you have even just a little bit of guitar playin’ skillz. I picked a ukulele up a while back and was instantly applying the same principles to play full songs. All you have to do is memorize a different set of chords!
In this video, I show you how to play a bit of Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. The chords I use are G C G D (in order). Check out the chords and strum pattern below and have a blasty blast.. island style!
Hey guys, just wanted to show you a little piece of “practicing what you preach!” In this video, I am playing the minor blues scale in the key of A. In the guitar battle at the end, I play pattern 1 for the first solo piece, then the 4th pattern for the 2nd solo piece. Finally, I transition the band into the outro via a series of pull offs all the way down on the 2nd fret from the G string to the D string. As you can see, I am a big fan of legato style.
