Don't know if anyone else has tried this but i'm thinking of tuning my uke in 5th's similar to a violin to try some classical pieces. Any ideas on strings or what some good tunings are?

I've found a lot of classical tabs for uke in standard gCEA tuning. I also come from a background as a classical guitarist and there are many beautifully transcribed violin/cello pieces which use standard guitar tuning rather than 5ths.

Personally, I like Worths for fingerpicking. YMMV.
