Cliff “Ukulele Ike” Edwards – Ja-Da (Tab)

Cliff Edwards – Ja-Da (Tab)

I first came across the song Ja-Da in Herb Ohta’s Sophisticated Ukulele tab book and had a lot of fun playing his version. I recently had my interest in the tune reawakened when Aline Kelly poster her tab of it.

My version is heavily based on Aline’s version. It’s in the same key and I use the same chords (although often in a different inversion). The melody is largely the same but I do shift the notes around. For example, rather than picking the E-string, 3rd fret in bar 3 I play the open g-string.

From bar 21, I start throwing in a few little runs. I’m just using notes from the F major scale for that. So I highly recommend trying a few things out for yourself and seeing what you can come up with.
