Hello

A more easy way to play the finger picking at the start is:

xA|–2——0–2———-2–0——————–0——|
xE|–3–3———-3—————–3–0——3—–3–|
xC|–2——————2—————–0—————–|
xG|–0——————————————————–|

xA|–0————–0–|
xE|–2–0–2–3——|
xC|–0——————|
xG|–2——————|

xA|–2——0–2———-2–0————-2–0———–|
xE|–3–3———-3—————–3–0———-3—2–|
xC|–2——————2—————–0—————0–|
xG|–0———————————————————-|

The finger picking after “it’s all right” in the chorus is played as:

xA|————-0——–0——–0——–0————————-|
xE|———-3——–3——–3——–3——3—-2—-0——–|
xC|–2—-4——–2——–0——–2————————–2–|
xG|———————————————————————-|

I hope this was helpful :)

donut

no that’s what i thought too

Yemala

same

ew

i could not be more confused. how does finger picking work?? i’ve read the manuals and the comments and tried my best to figure out what these patterns mean on my own. i don’t understand how this is so easy for everyone, even beginners. this is greek to me. if i understand correctly you’re supposed to to pluck the string on the fret corresponding to the numbers on the plucking pattern, but i then also do chords? and what are the zeros for? if they’re open notes, doesn’t that mean you’re not gonna use them? i cannot for the love of god figure out how this works. at this point i am open to ANY tips. y’all can tell me i need to perform a black magic ritual and form a pentragram with my uke in the middle and i goddamn will. i’m desperate at this point please help me

ServedInCrossDress

I’ll start from the very basics to clear up any possible confusions, so please don’t be offended if this accidentally comes across as condescending:

Each line is a string on your ukulele, labeled accordingly. If a number appears on the line of G, you’d pluck on only the G string with your finger on said fret. If there is a number next to the C, and E, and A then you would play all of those strings together but not include the G string. When there is a 0 it does mean that the string is played open; you still play that string, you just don’t put a finger on any fret. When playing a tablature, make sure that you’re plucking the strings individually and not strumming the entire ukulele (although if multiple strings are played together, you can strum them together once.)

alex

if youre having trouble, listen to the song and try place each sound to the corresponding pluck it shows on the tab, sometimes the problem is finding the rhythm of the fingerpicking, there are pauses that arent shown in the tab

Help

The answer, the top dot os the pointer then going down is the other fingers

donut

honestly manuals and comments do not work. you need to watch videos that can fully explain things with a visual demonstration. i really recommend the series of (youtube) videos from AllForUke; that’s what i used. really simple and easy to understand, although you should get used to the idea that it might take a lot of practice.

Abbie

i used the fender play 3 month free trial

noah

i recommend watching videos. it is very hard to explain when you can’t show the person you’re trying to teach. i had to facetime my friend to learn. there is also this https://liveukulele.com/tabs/how-to-read-tab/

Abbie

the zeros mean you dont put any pressure on that string but still play it and that first bit about the plucking pattern is correct. The chords are part of the plucking pattern ex:
A
A 4
E 0
C 1
D 2
the C and D strings would make the A chord but the pressure on the 4th fret of the A string would make it something different. another ex:
D
A 0
E 2
C 2
D 2
This is the D chord so when the numbers are stacked like that and it has the right fret numbers it will make a D chord

Emily

Zero means that you simply play an open string with no fingers on the fret. Some parts of the song will indicate that you used chords, others will show when you should do the finger picking pattern. There are some great YouTube videos that can help you learn this. Don’t give up, you’ve got it!

Cole Sprouse

Yeah i dont understand either. Ugh. Also I am greek. He he.

frickindeliasmith

after playing “it’s alright” in the chorus, here’s an easier way to play that riff
xA|——0—-0—-0—-0—————|
xE|—-3—-3—-3—-3—-3–2–0—|
xC|-4—–2—-0—-2—————-2-|
xG|—————————————–|

Bananas give you POWER

Slytherclaw

another way is using D, G, A7.

lunchtime

I use 5+ with no capo

bobbyyyy

try -2 transposing with capo on 2nd fret

iwillmarrybrendonurie

does anyone have a substitute for a7 in -2? it doesn’t really sound right to me

Jen

it sounds great to me, it intentionally is meant to be a jazz chord. May ensure you’re in tune just in case?
