Do folks linear string the baritone as one would Low G string a tenor?

Are the chord finger positions the same as standard tune on a tenor?

Is switching back and forth from tenor to baritone an issue?

Will my tenor finger picking tunes transfer to the baritone?

1. Typically, the baritone ukulele is tuned with linear strings like a guitar.
2. The positions are the same, but they have different names. ie. a "G" chord on a standard tuning ukulele is a "D" chord on a baritone.
3. I'm able to stop halfway through a practice session and switch over with no difficulty whatsoever.
4. Yes they will, they will just be down 5 halfsteps.
