    Default New acquisition and tuning...

    Hi troops,
    As some of you know I’m only just trying to learn to play a bit of uke after fiddling with guitar on and off since I was a kid.

    I have a couple as you will see from my signature below, and have just treated myself to this - a Cordoba 22T-CE Tenor Cutaway Electro Acoustic - bought for a REALLY good price.

    I understand from some of you that Cordoba ukes can be a bit hit and miss, but I seem to have stuck lucky with this one, with all it’s action and intonation seeming to be pretty good; well, good enough for MY limited ability to play it anyway.

    I’m also finding I’m having to downtune by a half stop in order to suit my vocal range. Is this likely to affect the instrument’s performance??

    I’ll try to post a video of me playing it in the next few days or so.
