The only reason I ventured into tabulature is because then I wouldn't have to sing!
The uke does the melody for me.
Cross-stitch is an apt comparison. lol. Though I promise you, tabs get easier and faster to read. I still don't understand all the symbols and markings that tell you how to combine notes etc, but I'm sticking with Woodshed from Uke Hunt. His video examples make things very clear for me. I have to remember to thank that guy.
I really appreciate the kind feedback, you people are wonderful.
I'll think about Owaka and Ibana. Thanks. This uke seems fussy and fancy...so shiny and with all the decorative details and gold tuners...very different from my sandy, unpolished concert. I think she needs a theatrical, splashy name.
biscuit, you've been picking for a while....didn't you use tabs? I'm going to have to go back and watch some of your old videos...unless you're going to put up a new one.
