Bm Ukulele Tab and How to Play It
Have you read possible every single tutorial on the internet about how to play the B minor chord on your ukulele, but you are still confused? Are you feeling so untalented because you are watching small children playing complex songs on youtube, while you are still confused about this single chord? Whoa, don’t give up easily. There is still hope for you.
Before we go any further, let’s make sure that you understand the ukulele tab and how to read it. The tab, or tablature, is the notation for ukulele with six lines that each represents a string. The thinnest string is represented by the top line, and the thickest string is represented by the bottom line. The ukulele tuning usually equals the tuning of the last four strings on a guitar.
There are many variations of the Bm ukulele tab:
However, just reading the tabs will not make you more advanced than you are now. To fully understand how to play these tabs, there is no better way than trying to play it on your ukulele.
Because most ukulele players classify the B minor chord as one of the hardest, I will give you some tips on how to play this chord to make your life easier. Here are the tips:
- Use the barre technique instead of four fingers
Barre means laying your index finger across the entire second fret. By performing this, your index finger should cover all strings. Remember to put the right amount of pressure when you do this. If you press too soft or too hard, it will not sound good. The Bm ukulele tabshould be treated with extra care.
Why did I recommend you not to use four fingers? I said that because using four fingers requires you to be really accurate on pressing the strings. So unless you are already an expert (in which case, you don’t need this tutorial), using four fingers only prevents you from playing a smooth transition from chord to chord.
- Grip Not Strong Enough?
In case you feel that your grip is not strong enough, support your index finger by adding another finger above it. That way, your index finger will have more strength. Also remember to place your thumb directly behind the ukulele neck. It provides even more support.
- Muffled sound?
If no sound comes out from your ukulele when you are trying to play it, it might be because your hand is blocking the strings. If this is your problem, try moving your hand away from your body. It gets rid of the blockage.
