The Machete TAB Book Volume 1

These beautiful pieces appear in the Collection of Pieces for Machete - a manuscript of 1846, collected by Candido Drumond de Vasconcelos. I have made a TAB version of ten of the tunes.

To play these tunes on a modern ukulele requires a low G for the 4th string, and then tune the first string down a tone to G, giving a C Major chord of (bass to treble) GCEG. However, this will be a 5th below the pitch of the machete.
