    Because I'm not english, I mainly base what term I use in that chuck sounds more percussive to me. The way I get the strongest chuck is by not only strumming with index finger down, but all 3...

    That is in my opinion mainly because ukulele is tuned a fourth above guitar and also that the re-entrant G string really does make the doubled notes that the guitar has not.

    Both of those things...

    Thank you for taking those measurements. And a good post too.

    It is exactly soprano ukulele that needs the wider nut, because fret spacing is smaller. To be able to play chords like D (2220) with...

    Ukulele is not some perfect music instrument in a sense that not all chords are lets say in having the root note at them bottom, some have them on top.

    It is to me when strummed a very folksy...

    I think it was not really about the number of frets, but if we wanted the body start at 12th fret. It to me has the advantages of a bigger body and somewhat easier to find the octave notes.

    I too would like have a 12 fret to the body concert ukulele. They are hard to find.
    Seems this 14 fret to the body was copied from an acoustic steel string guitar, perhaps from greedy newcomers...

    That has some good and some bads, your suggestion. Good that it is a songbook you recommended instead like the ubulele guy above, some flute "method". So yes definately a songbook instead a method...

    I realized after posting that I should have used the word someways instead somewhat, but I was too lazy to edit. And also it depends on the point of perspective. If you play a low G "uke" it does not...

    I'm not a fingerpicker, but I see one advantage with a low action and fingerpicking the frets and fingerboard not coming so much in a way.

    Ukulele is somewhat even more complicated than guitar regarding standard notation reading and chord fingerings. So I happily accept tabs for finger picked stuff, that I seldom play though. Less for...

    About twice the amount you need to lower on 12th fret, so 2 x 0.4 mm. I would take less first if there is any way to measure at all to be on a safe side though. To see if any buzz/dampening along the...

    I suggest restricting to a one octave range from C4 to C5 and sometimes, but very seldom to D and E on the A string. A re-entrant uke range...

    This keyboard has 100 different rhythms and almost 400 different instrument voices, so it can be almost an orchestra. But...

    To OP:
    If C is not right for your voice, then "neighbor" keys F or G offer a significant change that can be lower or higher depending of your voice range.
    Bb or D are to think too, and then Eb or...

    The only good reason i see for tuning ukulele down a few steps is maybe for sound quality or some finger handicap requiring looser strings.
    If you can't sing in one key transpose the tune to another...
