'Tab Time 1'

  • Ukulele Tab Notation is written on 4 lines...because...there are 4 strings on a ukulele!

  • The 'problem' with Tab Notation is that it is 'upside-down.' The top line on the notation is 'A' whereas the A string on the ukulele is at the bottom.

  • The 'O' symbol is for an 'Open string - no fingers pressing down.

  • If there is one 'O' - play one time...if it is on the 'A' line in the tab notation then play one time on the A string.

So let's try some Open String tunes to begin with...
