Ukulele specific transcriptions and TAB sites.
TAB, short for tablature
Wikipedia states: "An alternate usage of the word "tab" is common on the Internet, where it can also refer to conventional chord symbols (for harmony), or note names (for melody)."
(Curt Sheller) This a departure from what has been traditionally known as TAB. There a lot of sites on the Internet, especially ukulele sites popping up that claim to be TAB sites. These are mostly sites with the chords and lyrics to songs, with or without chord diagrams. Not really “TAB”, but I guess we’re stuck with an expansion of the definition of TAB.
Not that I have anything against TAB. It is useful tool I use with beginning students for getting a start learning an instrument such as the ukulele, guitar, banjo, etc... I definitely gets you learning the songs you like and already know passively as a listener. It has several long term drawbacks. Checkout my lesson on The Trouble with TAB! for more information.
from the Dominic “Dominator” Pieranunzio web site
A little about me: Primarily a self taught guitarist, pursuing the ukulele for approximately six years, I have spent the last couple of years concentrating on the ukulele. Not being able to find tablature for the ukulele in the same quality and format as was (and still is) available for the guitar is the motivation behind this site. Since books containing ukulele tab were not available, I decided I would try to transcribe the songs myself and make them available for others to learn from as well.
Dominic "Dominator" Pieranunzio has some of the best ukulele TABs available online. And, a great player as well.
The Dominator uses Power Tab Editor. The only issue I have is the standard music notation part. For musicians used to reading standard music notation the rhythmic notation is very hard to read at times. In common, 4/4 time there are a lot of cases where a note is sustained over the mid bar with out using a tie. This is not standard and is rarely used, with the exception of latin music. Making it very hard to read for a player used to reading professionally prepared charts.
