Hi.

I was trying to find the ukulele tabs for She's Casual by The Hunna. I could only find the guitar tabs and I don't know how to convert them. Could someone maybe convert them for me or tell me how to do it myself? I couldn't use the ukulele-tabs converter as it's blocked in my country and when using a proxy, the site just gave me an error.

Thanks.

Have tried using the E (2) string and G (4) string on your uke with the frets listed? I don't know the song but picking it, it did sound like a melody. I'm probably the last player to give you advice but....

quiltingshirley has already given you a good advice.

Let's play the base line on the lowest string of uku first (red circles). We don't need to change our tuning at the moment.

So just playing the E, first fret on the ukulele and then G, second fret? The same strings as with the guitar?

hi, cabbagetree! Thank you for the reply!

Yes. Just take the rhythm and base line on your lowest string and simulate the song. Can you do it? Once you've got it, we move to our E string.

Youtube is two steps higher. Your tab may have a capo on 2 fret. Just +2 on the previous tab.

A---2--------2--------9--------9---------5--------4--------2--------2------------
E-3---3---3---3--10--10--10--10----7---7---5---5---3---3---3---3-
C------------------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------------------

Then we change string for ukulele. E-> G

A---2-------2--------9-------9---------5------4--------2------2---
E------------------------------------------------------------------
C------------------------------------------------------------------
G-0---0---0---0---7---7---7---7----4---4---2---2---0---0---0---0-

I like this way.

A---2-------2----------------------------------------2-------2---
E--------------------0-------0-------------------------------------
C-----------------2----2---2---2----2-------1-------------------
G-0---0---0---0-------------------4---4---2---2---0---0---0---0-

This is original key D. If we can not sing on this key, we have to shift.

You are well come! I like this song too. Chorus is not too hard but intro is bit hard to play and sing. We need to practice a lot. See you soon.
