    Default Tabs or Videos?

    I think videos are better to learn from. Not only can you hear exactly how they are playing it you can see what they are doing and how they are attacking the strings.

    However having both at the same time though makes learning a song MUCH easier... for me anyway. Though, if it were one or the other I would choose video. If it were video lesson and not just a performance video that's all you need.

    Are you guys planning on making tabs too?

    Clearly videos are easier to learn from, but I know the effort it takes to make a good one, so I like tabs too since you can make them a lot faster than a video.

    I need both when it's a song I'm totally unfamiliar with. Without video, music notation works better than tabs. The most effective for me are tabs and video. Need to see & hear the strum pattern.

    You can read notes with your ukulele? I can't read more than one note at a time..

    probably tabs, so you can change the strumming style up to your own preference.
    My friend says the ukulele is like the banjo... wtf? hahaha

    video helps alot with positioning sound and timing after the video i often create a tab so if i get stuck i dont have to log onto my comp just to see whats wrong

    in other words tabs help after a video for me
    i love music of all sorts

    I like to see videos so that I can figure out how the song goes and the strum patterns (or how the particular person teaching it likes to play it), since most of the time, tabs leave out the rhythms. But for reference, I like to see tabs too, and they're great if I already know how the song goes.
