I have a Tenor Uke, and i was wondering if there was any way to tune it differently to give it more of a soprano sound....could be a dumb question, sorry, just kicking the idea around to give it a more "Hawaiian Sound" for certain songs.

Thanks

Don't you know, that's why modern Uke wall hanger racks come in threes???

If it's strung with high G, then it may be as close as you are going to get.

Tenors have a lower and more resonant sound because of the size of their bodies. One can't really change that.

Sopranos don't all sound the same. Those with wider or larger lower bouts will sound deeper than those with smaller bouts.
