Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain – Ode to Joy (Tab)

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are taking part in this year’s Proms and they’re having a play along for everyone attending. To that end, they’ve put up tabs and tutorials of the parts. But there’s no tab for the counter-melody – only standard notation. Nightmare! So I did my ‘Every good boy deserves football’ and here’s what I reckon.

Ode to Joy Counter-Melody (Tab)

I can’t be sure it’s spot on. I can’t hear them playing it at any point to check.

Here it is along with the main melody and the chords:

Ode to Joy (Tab and Chords)

And I’ve put together a solo version based on this arrangement for those of us who are far too white trash to visit the proms.
