Thread: Help Finishing / Improving tab

    Default Help Finishing / Improving tab

    Here's the tab for Kokomo I have been working on (intro melody):



    Aruba, Jamaica, oh, I wanna Take Yeah
    A|--2-2-3---2-2-3---5--3-3-2-2-3
    E|----------------------------------
    C|----------------------------------
    G|----------------------------------


    Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
    A|--7-7-8---7-7-8---10--8-8-7-7-8
    E|-----------------------------------
    C|-----------------------------------
    G|-----------------------------------


    Key Largo,Montego, baby why don't we go,
    A|--2-2-3---2-2-3---5--3-3-2-2-3
    E|----------------------------------
    C|----------------------------------
    G|----------------------------------

    Jamaica, Off the Florida Keys
    A|--7-7-8--10-10-10-12-14-10---
    E|----------------------------------
    C|----------------------------------
    G|----------------------------------

    Theres a place called kokomo
    A|--8-8-8-10-8-7-7
    E|------------------
    C|------------------
    G|------------------

    That's where you want to go
    A|--7--8-7-7-5--5
    E|-----------------
    C|-----------------
    G|-----------------

    To get away from it all
    A|--7-8-10-12-5-5-5
    E|--------------------
    C|--------------------
    G|--------------------


    That's all I got so far. I want to write it as a duet. I dont' want the original feel of the song to go away. I can't figure out what the other uke would be playing. Any suggetions to change on the tab or add to make it sound better. This is my first tab I have ever attempted so yeah . (I don't know how to do the code thing so that's why it's in the description)

    P.S. Does anybody know any tab creating program?

    there's actually a tab chord forum, someone there might understand what that is...

    Since you have the first uke playing the melody, the first thing that comes to mind is to let the second uke strum the chords.
    Ukulele:
    Iriguchi Tenor "Weeble" - A, WoU Clarity
    Blue Star 19" baritone Konablaster - DGBE
    Cocobolo 16" SC#1-gCEA, SC SLMU
    Ono #42 19" baritone, Ab, LW
    Imua iET-Bb, M600
    Covered Bridge CLN pineapple - Eb cuatro, SC XLL
    Rogue bari
    Bonanza super tenor, cFAD SC LHU
    Kala KSLNG, Eb SC XLU
    Hanson 5-string tenor, dGCEA
    Bonanza SLN GCEA
    Bonanzalele concert
    Guitars:
    Jupiter #47, G, TI CF127
    Pelem, B reentrant
    Jupiter #71, A, UG1

    Deleted by me. Too much nonsense, not enough valuable info.

    Apparently I've been drinking haha.

    Here is my poor attempt at a hand written tab of the intro and beginning of first verse. Haven't heard the song in years, so I might be off. But see if this helps you. Only took a few minutes, so I could do the rest tomorrow evening:

    Thanks for the tab. Way better than mine.

    I was planning on that, but I couldn't find any chords that fit the feel of the song (or maybe it's my strumming pattern)

    Here's a little harmony line I came up with for your original tab. I think it keeps the feel and style of the song.
    Aruba, Jamaica, oh, I wanna Take Yeah
    A|--2-2-3---2-2-3---5--3-3-2-2-3
    E|----------------------------------
    C|—2-2-4–-2-2-4-–-5--4-4-2-2-4
    G|----------------------------------


    Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
    A|--7-7-8---7-7-8---10--8-8-7-7-8
    E|—3-3-5---3-3-5—-6—-5-5-3-3-5
    C|-----------------------------------
    G|-----------------------------------


    Play through this, and if it sounds like you want, then we can do the next bit. You created a good tab!
