Indie Ukulele Tabs

Delicate riffs, clanging guitars and anthemic choruses. Below is every band I have arranged on the ukulele that could be considered indie. It’s one of the broader terms in musical genres but here you can find anything from Arctic Monkeys to Radiohead. I have organised them by albums, typically, each album will have three indie ukulele tabs with it.

The majority of ukulele tabs on this website are organised by the album they come from. Click on the posts below to get to the tabs.
