Basic Flamenco Ukulele Chords

A lot of flamenco music is played in one of two keys, por medio and por arriba. They are named after the positions of the two primary chords on the guitar.

On the guitar; Por medio is the key of A. The A chord lies in the middle (medio) of the fretboard and the chords are Dm - C - Bb - A.

On the guitar; Por arriba is the key of E. The E chord lies higher (arriba) on the fretboard and the chords are Am - G - F - E.

The basic chords of each key form the Cadencia Andaluz, the Andalusian Cadence (iv- III - II - I)

I have transposed the chords for use on the ukulele, keeping the same chord progression (using root plus 4).
