How to learn to play tabs?

¡Read tabs It's one of the easiest things in the world!

It's very simple, the first thing we need to know is ....
What do these dotted lines mean?

THIS IS CALLED TABLATURE

And in a ukulele it would be the same as this ...

As we can realize each dotted line is a string.
Now... What do the numbers on the dotted lines mean?

Those numbers refer to the fret where we have to put our fingers.
Example:

In this example, we are playing the 1 - 2 - 3 - 0 frets on the Sun string
Remember that when an 0 comes out it means playing the rope in the air.


Sometimes we have numbers above and below others, this means we have to play chords.
Example:

EYE: Tabs do not necessarily bring the strumming circle, they are only referential for chords.

Following these steps you can decipher these curious ways to read the music.
