Christmas Ukulele: German Carol Tabs

Weihnachten mit der Ukulele (PDF)

As well as his classical and traditional tab book, Wilfried Welti has also put together an ebook of German Christmas carols. Some of these – such as O, Tannenbaum and Stille Nacht – are very familiar outside of Germany. Some of them are less recognisable – such as Ihr Kinderlein Kommet (O Come, Little Children). Others are entirely new to me but have great tunes such as Lieb Nachtigall. All of them are beautifully and simply arranged for the uke.

UPDATE: Wilfried has a new Christmas ebook available Christmas Music with the Ukulele. It’s even better than this one!

    You uke-guys are great!
    Very helpful posts, I was about to gather some uke-tabs over the internet and thought it will be a hard time to find them since ukulele is a rare instrument here in Austria…

    Thanks thanks thanks!
