    Default FREE Downloads and Resources for Uke Players / Students

    We see the same things being hunted for again and again. As I don't see a thread listing the commonly sought downloads and tools that might help people develop their playing, I thought I'd share a few things I know of.

    If anyone knows of more/better ones, please post and I'll consider updating this post to include them.

    Mods, if this has already been done before or better, please just delete this thread.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Downloads - All FREE software unless stated

    Slow-Down / Pitch-Shift

    Slow-down facility allows you to slow tunes down to hear more clearly what is being played. Very helpful for learning. Pitch-shift allows you to change the key of a tune.



    TAB software

    • TablEdit - Tab editor and player. Very flexible with great features. A fantastic learning tool. IMHO, more versatile, stable and usable than Power Tab. TablEdit is commercial software, but great value (NFI) : http://www.tabledit.com/index.shtml
    • TEFview - Free TableEdit viewer/player. Also a great learning tool, but doesn't allow editing of tabs : http://www.tabledit.com/tefview/
    • Power Tab - Free tab editor. Popular tab editing prog : http://www.power-tab.net/


    Audio Recording and Editing



    Video Download Conversion and Playback

    For those who would like to have local versions of online video tutorials to keep safe (in case the unthinkable happens to a teacher's Youtube account) there are facilities that allow the download of FLV files (as used by Youtube, Dailymotion etc. There are also free players and converters.

    If you do download videos, please continue to view the online versions and to support the channels of those who are kind enough to make tutorials for us.




    Online Tools - FREE unless stated

    Various





    Uke chord charts



    Uke chord Flash Cards

    UU member anniekate76 set up some handy online flash cards to help you learn your chords : http://www.flashcardmachine.com/p/ukechords

    Thanks to all the people who make this great free stuff available to us.

    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Excellent resources!

    The "Online uke chord finder 3" at 4stringchords.com has a reverse chord lookup where you can set the key, type in the finger positions, and get the chords. I have been looking for something like this for a while.

    Thanks!

    I got a couple more for you
    http://www.cutepdf.com/
    It lets you save most any document as a pdf, which means that no matter which of the tab editor programs you use you can save them in an easy to open way

    http://www.mediafire.com/
    you can host files for free.

    That stuff plus the powertab means that you can make files, host them and then you can share them here!
