The 50 Best Sites for Ukulele Chords, Tabs, Learning to Play, Information, and Sales
There is a ton of information online about the Ukulele. Some good, some bad, some simply downright wrong. We have put out a lot of quality content in our Ukulele section, but there are a lot of other really high-quality sites on the web well worth the time you'll spend checking them out.
The Sites are divided into 6 categories: Learning to Play, Blogs, Chords/Tabs, Stores, Information, and Foreign. There is some crossover, in which case I tried to choose the category we felt the site was strongest in. The sites are also not ranked, as we are not going off of traffic or any tangible stat, these are simply sites we felt had the most to offer.
If you know of a site you feel has been excluded from this list please contact us so we can consider it. The list currently has 50 English sites and 10 Foreign, so what's a few more (if they are quality!).
Editors Note: The current list actually sits at 49 sites. Unfortunately, even communities as amazing as the Ukulele world have some bad apples. One of the biggest Ukulele site's owner was removed from this list after repeatedly slandering our site/list. So, if you know what site we haven't included please do not say/comment on it. We know it's not here, it's not an oversight, we simply cannot recommend the person behind the site.
