Anyone know if this would sound good? I just thought it would be neat to have a uke with a bit more bass. I don't have a guitar background and don't feel like learning a different tuning..

Any ideas??

She's playing a Skylark Baritone which I believe she strung with a set of Aquila Tenor GCEA string set. I have the exact same 'ukulele but I strung mine with the Aquila baritone GCEA (AECG) set. Sounds great and easy to play.
