Hello,

I recently got some new strings for my low g soprano uke, Aquila Nylgut, very very satisfied. Although I noticed after playing it for about an hour or two that my 'g' string, which is like a string you would find on a guitar instead of 'nylgut' or plastic, rotates when I strum it. Its sorta like if you had a string through a straw and where strumming the straw. Its not nearly as bad, but is this normal? I had very very poor strings before. Doesn't affect playing much, other than feeling different,just curious if its normal.

Thanks!

EDIT: Crap, I'm pretty dumb. I think I have a high g uke. Is this going to be a problem? That would be a regular soprano then right? High G?

If your strings are Aquilla and the G string is a wound metal string than it is a low G string and presumably tuned low G.

Would there be any problem keeping it tuned to a high G? Obviously other than the shorter lifespan it will probably have.

Thanks!

Two completely different strings so you wont' be able to do that.
