Ja-Da: Tabs for Guitar, Tenor Banjo, Mandolin, and Ukulele

James Rutherford

Ja-Da was written by pianist Bob Carleton in 1918. A simple melody with even simpler lyrics, this tune has somehow become a perennial standard. Maybe the lyrics tell the secret. The tabs below contain the original melody along with two solo breaks adapted from recorded solos improvised by trumpeter/cornetist Bobby Hackett and pianist/band leader Count Basie. The same music is tabbed out for guitar, tenor banjo, mandolin and ukulele.
