5 Tabs For Traditional Songs

Happy New Year! I hope this year sees even more ‘ukulele players spreading messages of peace, love, and unity.

I’m going to kick off the fresh 365 here on Live ‘Ukulele with five – I repeat – five new tabs! They are all pretty simple, short, and familiar. Perfect for the beginning/intermediate player.

  • Amazing Grace – One of those songs that everybody seems to cover. From Victor Wooten to the Dropkick Murphys, the renditions are endless. This tab is just a simple version of the melody, but a great place to get yourself familiar with the 3/4 time signature.
  • Oh Susanna – The traditional favorite by Stephen Foster. Easy picking and chords in F.
  • Row, Row, Row Your Boat – A contender for the simplest song on Live ‘Ukulele. Also a great introduction to triplets without you knowing it!
  • Take Me Out To The Ballgame – The most interesting piece of songwriting in this collection. I made it a solo arrangement that combines the 3/4 clever chord changes with the melody.
  • You Are My Sunshine – Another solo arrangement, this time in G.
