Unbelievable! Twelve years of study and research, millions of dollars spent, 25,000 computers exploded and 17 programmers gone insane - we've finally made it! UG is absolutely proud to present you a mind-blowing revolutionary app - Ultimate Balalaika Inspired Tabs, Chords and Holograms (aka U.B.I.T.C.H.)

What does it mean? Ultimate Balalaika Tabs provides you with a wide variety of popular songs' tabs arranged exclusively for this fine instrument. Always wanted to learn how to play Smells Like Teen Spirit on balalaika? Eager to balalaika-jam on some Black Sabbath tunes? We've got it here for you. There's nothing to be ashamed of - although not really publicized, many outstanding artists began their music careers playing balalaika, Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani to name a few. They switched to guitar only because it was easier to play.

If you want to become a balalaika hero and master what they call a Godfather of Guitar, check our app. Ultimate Balalaika Tabs - it balls!

    Upon installing the app, Slash instantly became a fan. In fact, he loved balalaika so much he decided to use it on his next record. Check out his jam:

      Ha? Im confused snickering. did you guys get massively bent last night? Cause that would be good enough for me, ehough said. cheers.
      OMG, that bear in the first picture looks so retarded that I can't stop laughing.
      I feel uncomfortable, but I like it. Sort of like that feeling you get when an ugly girl comes on to you.
      I would use anything that has a logo of a stoned bear holding an instrument and a bottle of vodka.
      I'm the only one that thinks that this is kind of hilarious?
      People who call themselves 'smart', usually aren't. Business with 'Posh' in their name, usually aren't. Articles that call themselves 'fun', well, I think you can see where this is going...

      There's a joke article every Friday. Sometimes a cartoon or something. Fun Friday article! I'm only curious to see how many people believed it.
      Apparantly the Balalaika is a hidden gem, i mustve been living under a rock for a while...
      It's friday, friday gotta get down on friday! FUN FUN FUN!
      Я русский Иван, я люблю балалайк 80;, водку и медведей.
      In all seriousness, UG should offer "other" as a tab category. Lots of rock/folk/country music features mandolin, banjo, and stringed instruments. UG should accommodate this.
      Don't tell me you haven't listened to Moldovian Death Metal before!
      I don't know what the others are complaining about. Nothing but a little fun! I'd rather see jokes than (the new) Mustaines opinions on or Courtenay Loves insanity... And it's not like we haven't heard about Axl and Guns to death. Drunk Russian bears playing the Balalaika, ain't nuthin' wrong with that!
      I don't get what everyone is complaining about. It's just a little joke. Lighten up people.
      It's Friday fun guys! Considering the site is Russian based, it took me a few min to realise this is made up. I'm strangely disapointed that it is now :-(
      That article makes my day! Thanks to our news department, especially to Ian Paul Gint =)
      I bet they were all sitting around the office like "who we gon' fool this fridey?" ... ... ... UBITCH!!!
      the sad thing is that this is a joke. Balakailakalialkalakaiiallakalkalai tabs would be sick.
      WE ARE EWERYWHEEEEREEEEE We give balalayka to you and tomorrow we will give you VODKA and BEARS! И здесь дофига русских, отличный сайт же
      Take me to the magic of the moment on a glory night where the children of tomorrow dream away in a wind of change... Let you Balalaika sing while my guitar wants to say....
      I'm from Siberia.There every russian man and bear can play balalaika since childhood.
      looking at all the news. its either a late aprils fool or UG has been hacked...
      Не ребят, ну для меня это оскорбле 85;ие, нас опять ассоциир 91;ют с водкой, шапками-у 096;анками и медведям 80;! Хотя задумано прикольн 86; З.Ы. Откуда здесь столько РУССКИХ O_o?!
