I play ukulele and bass, and I'm beginning guitar after many years of shoving it to the side.
I recently asked a member of one of my favorite local bands for chords to a song of theirs, and he asked if I could read tabs. Well, I said I could because I can read bass and ukulele tabs, the ones with this set up: --3-0---5---...

He sent me this:
4, 1, 5, 6 5
4, 1, 5, 6 5
4, 1, 5, 3

verse:
4, 6, 5, 3 (x3)
4, 6, 5

chorus:
4, 1, 5, 6 5 (x4)

I have no idea what it means? The song is played on an acoustic guitar.
So could someone tell me how to play it? I'll post the video to the song, and if anyone could tell me chords, that'd be even better!

^that's it

Thanks for any help!

Hey, just so your not thinking you missed the boat somewhere, this does not make any sense and is not 'tablature' in any respect that i've seen. It could maybe be a reference to a root note? but what string to begin with, or maybe a reference to a chord shape(s) you may have been given which isnt shown here? This is like deciphering a dead language - without a reference point to start with its all assumption. If you've been in contact can you ask them for better explanation?

I'll write chords in a bit and repost. I'm not convinced that they know how to label chords, even if they're using a system like Nashville tuning.

Anyways, studio version is drop D, capo 1. I'll write it out more when I repost.
Glad to cross paths with you on this adventure called life

Thank you both! It definitely had me confused, so I'm glad I'm not the only one.

^ that's Nashville notation there, but the problem is the guy's chord indications don't make sense under that system.

I'll think of a way to compress for uke, but you're going to be missing some notes unless you just follow the chord names.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I'll see what I can do to work on ukulele chords, as well. 😁
