Ukulele Tabs blocked in the UK

Some annoying news for UK ukers last week. The biggest ukulele chord and tab site on the net (ukulele-tabs.com) has taken action to block all of it’s content to users across the country. This is due to action by the Music Publishers Association and some tough new music copyright laws being thrown around.

It’s not all bad news though, there are plenty of guitar chord sites floating around the net that you can use. The chords are mostly the same but of course the tabs are no good for us four stringers!

Option 2 is to use a proxy anonymizer site such as zend2.com to bypass the site’s location IP blocking. It slows it down a bit but it means you can still fully access the site’s content.

Happy sneaky proxy server strumming!

    @Andy

    Nothing to do with the conservatives, try the greedy music publishers like Sony, MGM etc, they are the ones demanding it blocked.

    Thank you so much, everything is blocked in the US too and I was having a hell of a time finding tabs elsewhere.

    For chords to songs I use ultimateguitar.com and just play uke instead of guitar, sorted : )

    • Yep UltimateGuitar is a great site! I also use Chordie quite a lot as I find the layout a bit cleaner and you can switch to show uke chords or different tunings using the right hand sidebar.

    great thanks to all

  11. Hey Folks, I’m Marty, I play a soprano Mahalo (gotta love an underdog uke) and I squeeze out some great sounds from it. What’s this about tabs being blocked in the UK? Can’t anyone put their own version of tabs for songs…or am i just missing the point here? Can someone enlighten me. PS, I really like this wee site! Great.
