Area of Expertise : Christmas
Most tablature sites have a Christmas selection or two availble, some have a lot more. Considering the popularity of Christmas music (and that it comes around every twelve months), it’s good to have a few of these under your belt. Earn your AE Christmas patch by demonstrating three arrangements of Christmas tunes (or winter/holiday tunes) for the ukulele (duets, trios, etc. work as well). You may create your own tabs for these (please email copies to be shared on this page to firstname.lastname@example.org), or find tabs out there on the internet. Here are a few resources for this genre:
- Christmas Ukulele Solos: 20 Holiday Favorites Arranged in Chord-Melody Style for Tenor Ukulele. Low-G tuning.
- Javier Marco’s Christmas Carols for Ukulele: Easy Songs in Standard Notation & Tablature.
- Holiday Favorites for Solo Ukulele by Joe Carr
- These sites all contain Christmas/Holiday tabs: PDF Minstrel, Ukulele Hunt, Dominator, John King, Akulele, Moroni’s Uke.
If you enjoy playing with others (seems natural at Christmastime), consider these tabs as well:
- Christmas Carols for Ukulele Orchestra: 12 Classic Carols for Three or More Ukuleles : Orchestral-style Parts featuring Tablature & Standard Notation by M. Ryan Taylor of UkulelePlay.com (that’s me).
- Christmas Ukulele Duets by Uke of Carl.
