by Gabby Szmidt

This is how you play tabs on the Ukulele.

Supplies

  • Instructions

    Step 1

    So tabs can be kind of hard to figure out at first, but I'm here to help!

    Step 2

    So this is a rather crappy picture quality but usually tabs have 4 lines, the top one is the A string then the E, then C, and finally G. There are also numbers.

    Step 3

    The numbers are a reference to the fret. A Frey is the space between the bars.

    Step 4

    Let's say the tab says 3 on the A string, this is what it would look like.

    Step 5

    Okay a harder one. There's a 2 on G and a 1 on A. This is what it looks like.

    Step 6

    An example of a few chords. Try it out an have fun!
