Hi!

I learned some basic things from a book from Hal Leonard. I like the way the tablatures are written, because it is very easy to understand. In the book there are a couple of songs, but they are very very simple. Like this:

80848

I've been looking on the internet for tablatures like this, but then a little more difficult maybe. Not just only children songs, if you know what i mean :)

My question is, do you guys know a place where i can find tablatures like this? Every website i visit that says 'ukulele tablatures', is actually a website with just chords!

Greets,
Jantine

There are some for free here (http://quietamericanmusic.com/ukuleletabsandvideos/)on Aaron Keim's site, and I highly recommend his books as well. They're beginner-friendly but with some challenges as well.

I'd recommend checking the selection at a music store if you can. You're right, most of the "free tab" on the internet is misuse of the word tab and is mostly just chords. There are a few sites that have much more difficult tab, and I'm sure a few more will chime in here with recommendations as well, but Aaron's tabs should be a good start.

Wilfred Welti has also arranged several songbooks and tabulature collections, some of which are free: see here (http://www.ukulele-arts.com/tabs-and-e-books/?lang=en). The solo book for beginners is rather complex. His non-free ebooks are quite good as well, and they come with MP3s.

Depending on your knowledge of musical "standard notation" you might want to create your own songsheets with Musescore (http://musescore.org) - it has full support for Uke tablature which is sometimes very handy to figure out some fingerings
