Hi Folks, I know the low g topics have been covered many times before, but I have a specific question that I cant find the answer to.

Old songs like "5 foot 2 and Aint She Sweet" etc, I have heard many times on many different Uke's. But I have never heard any of these old time songs on a Uke with a low g.

Basically, would a low g work here with these old songs?

Or would they sound even better using A D F# B tuning rather than the G C E A set as normal re-entrant tuning?.

Yep. Somewhat different sound, of course, but not bad, just different. I have ukes in both high and low G tunings. Sometimes I like to play a song on the low G because it sounds nice, with that extra bass. But the solution is of course to have ukes tuned in both high and low so you can compare.
