Ultimate Guitar Introduces Ukulele Chords
We're proud to finally introduce a new section on Ultimate Guitar: ukulele tabs!

It's been one of the most requested updates from UG readers for years, and eagle-eyed UG readers will have spotted it arrive earlier this week.

The ukulele might look like just a small cousin to the acoustic guitar, but that doesn't make it less of an instrument. Ever since it emerged from Hawaii in the 19th century, it's been growing in popularity worldwide and has become one of the most accessible stringed instruments in the world because it's easy to learn and affordable for schools. And besides, they sound great - especially when you have tabs for great songs to play on them!

Regular 'Chord' tabs will now feature an ukulele counterpart. Tabbers who want to create Uke-dedicated tabs simply have to choose the new 'Ukulele' category when submitting the tab - you'll find it under the 'Type' drop down box on our regular 'Submit' page.

Here's some of our favorite songs to play on ukulele. Try out our new Uke tabs and let us know your feedback and first impressions in the comments.

Israel Kamakawiwoole - "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

Jason Mraz - "I'm Yours"

Train - "Hey, Soul Sister"

Lumineers - "Ho Hey"

Beatles - "Let It Be"

Maroon 5 - "Payphone"

Passenger - "Let Her Go"

The Eagles - "Hotel California"

Death Cab For Cutie - "I Will Follow You Into The Dark"

Adele - "Someone Like You"
