Total noob here
If I wanted to tune my ukulele from GCEA to the Canadian ADF#B would the strings break? I've had experience breaking my strings on the violin if I tuned too far, and I was just wondering if the same thing applies to the uke.

I've done it and nothing happened. Aldrine also does it in his Ukulele Lesson for Schizophrenic Snowflakes... so I think it should be ok.

nylon strings are lot more forgiving in terms of their ability to stretch compared to violin strings

you should be able to go inbetween GCEA and ADF#B without a problem.
