Okay, so I just bought a Pono Tenor from musicguymic and didn't pay attention to the whole 'high g upon request' part. Now that I have it in my hands I have no clue how to tune a low g. I've always used the online ukulele tuner at get-tuned.com for my concert uke but am at a loss as what to do. Do I have to get a pitch pipe or buy an electronic tuner? Any advice would be sweet! Thanks~:shaka:

I'd get the electric tuner. How are you going to tune the uke if you don't have computer access?

Yeah... that's been somewhat of a problem. Any recommendations for good electric tuners?

Hold down the 5th fret on the G-string and pluck it. It should sound like the the C-String plucked (open).

Thanks a million! I was hoping I wasn't going to have to suffer through waiting to get a tuner in the mail before I could play this sweet uke!

Also, if you press the G3 radio button on the get-tuned site's tuner (http://www.get-tuned.com/ukulele_tuner.php), that's the same note as your low G.

I use the F-Zone clip-on tuner and I like it. A couple friends have Cherub clip-ons and like them as well.

I like my intelli tuner!
