    Barre Chord advice?

    It seems ridiculous, because barre chords are about the easiest in the world, but my fingers are NOT long enough to do them or something. The two lowest strings are fine, but the other two aren't...

    Ok, are there any tuners out there that are decent but not $40+ decent? I am building a uke, and I am trying to keep things on the cheap (just to see how it turns out).
