TAB, short for tablature
Wikipedia states: "An alternate usage of the word "tab" is common on the Internet, where it can also refer to conventional chord symbols (for harmony), or note names (for melody)."
(Curt Sheller) This a departure from what has been traditionally known as TAB. There's a lot of sites on the Internet, especially ukulele sites popping up that claim to be TAB sites. These are mostly sites with the chords and lyrics to songs, with or without chord diagrams. Not really “TAB”, but I guess we’re stuck with an expansion of the definition of TAB.
I don't have anything against TAB. It is useful tool I use with beginning students for getting a start learning an instrument such as the ukulele, guitar, banjo, etc... It definitely gets you learning the songs you like and already know and like. However that is actually one of its major drawbacks, you need to know the song already. It also has several long term drawbacks. Checkout my lesson on The Trouble with TAB! for more information.

A little about me: Primarily a self taught guitarist, pursuing the ukulele for approximately six years, I have spent the last couple of years concentrating on the ukulele. Not being able to find tablature for the ukulele in the same quality and format as was (and still is) available for the guitar is the motivation behind this site. Since books containing ukulele tab were not available, I decided I would try to transcribe the songs myself and make them available for others to learn from as well.
