Hey UU,
I was wondering what tension indicates and how it affects ukuleles? Thanks. :)

tension would be how tight the strings are.

too much, and you can damage your uke (cause bridge to pop, or the tuners screws to fall off)
too less, and the strings could be too loose and not sound or play well.

Tension can also come from buying too many ukuleles.
Seriously, tension is how tight the strings are. Besides how it can effect the uke, it is also how it feels while playing it.
Both hands can be affected.

High tension strings violate my warranty.
