Ukulele Hunt is one of the best uke sites out there these days. Tabs for lots of stuff, instruction on how to play, videos, interviews, and pretty much everything you could want. It's the #1 uke site for a reason.

Cool Ms Jones 8) Feel free to edit in the first post as you need :)

I keep thinking about starting to learn but tbh I don't have time. I already play guitar (though not for years now) and can read music so it wouldn't be too hard for me I am sure. One day soon :roll:

I just found this site called www.chordie.com Some of you who play the guitar may already be aware of this. The thing is if you register and set your instrument to uke all the chords will show up as uke chords :D In addition you can build your own songbook and, even better, there are already loads of public songbooks, some of which are dedicated to songs fitting the uke! :D

:rock: Love this site! I was going to post it but you beat me to it.
The transposing tool is another nice feature. With just a click you can change the key of a song to one that has easier chords. Great for beginners (like myself).
You'd have to be deaf to hear that.

Thanks for the reminder, biscuit. I've used that site a lot for guitar stuff, but occasionally for ukes, as well. It's really quite handy.

Ah, Duke of Uke is a classic!

If you're ever in the North Carolina area, I also recommend Highly Strung. It's not solely ukes, but it's a great little store with excellent service and a nice little selection of ukes. That's where I got Steve.

I only visited this site before briefly for the chords so I just had a look at the play along option too. Cool! 8)
