I was wondering if anybody knew what the lower tuning that Jim Beloff uses on a tenor in that Joy of Uke? I like the scale on my tenor,, but dont like the tighter feeling strings over the concert scale feel. Just wondering,, thought it might be something to try this wknd

Aloha Steve,
when you have a digital clip on chromatic tuner a note has 10 increments of pitch
five up, perfect pitch, and five down.
ie...so it goes perfect pitch +10, +20, +30, +40, +50
and lower Perfect pitch, -10, -20, -30, -40, -50
the slash means the digital is in between the two settings
and the letters are the notes form the top down ie..GCEA
I hope this helps...If not ask again ... MM Stan...
