How to read a ukulele tablature

A tablature is a method of writing down music played on stringed instruments like the guitar or the ukulele. It uses ordinary ASCII characters and numbers, making it easy to understand and ideal for places like the internet. It's a visual representation of the instrument's fretboard
Here is what it looks like. :


How to read a ukulele tablature :

The 4 lines correspond to the strings of the instrument,
The Numbers show you where to fret the strings (a zero means to play the open string),

Like in standard musical notation, you must read a ukulele tab from the left to the right to find out when to play the notes. If two or more notes are to be played together, they are written on top of one another.

Each letter above the tablature denotes the root note of a chord,
Extra letters or symbols between the notes to indicate how to play them,

Most common symbols are :

/ for a slide up
\ for a slide down
h for a hammer
p for a pull-off
