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.

Thanks for the input and comments peeps. I'm loving it at the mo and the case IS quite special.

Congrats! B tuning won't affect the uke's performance. I like Bb on my tenors.
