    I'd recommend tenor. Baritone is ok too but I usually like to reserve baritone for lower tunings

    Nice. Sounds like a "holy grail" class of instrument :shaka:

    Ah. That makes more sense. That should be fine on the tension. Whether you like the feel or the sound is up to you. FWIW, I have a baritone guitalele tuned to Terz, so GCFBbDG and I don't think it...

    If the set is designed for G3, tuning it up to D4 - 7 half steps - would be a VERY high tension. That sounds like a good way to snap strings (at best) or damage a neck (at worst). If you want DGBE,...

    The Venezuelan cuatro is also reentrant but the "opposite" of uke in that the bottom three are linear and the top drops back an octave. You can do this kind of "low reentrant" tuning on uke as well...

    No, tenor uke is 17" scale and nylon or flourocarbon strings. You might be able to find strings to tune your bass to GCEA but it won't be remotely a ukulele-like experience.

    You can get a brand...

    Thanks. Probably not exactly one of these since it is a fairly new hybrid design and there's only one guy building them :p
    Although there are lots of similar variants.

    That's how I do it in general - try to think of every uke as GCEA and transpose the chords as needed rather than try to remember different names for the same shape. If you look at my signature block...

    Depends on the purpose. I'm getting better about letting small mistakes go. If it's a train wreck, then I'll start over. And if I don't have it good enough by the 3rd or 4th take, I figure I need...

    Yeah, if you're trying to get GCEA with longer than standard 17" tenor scale, then you're doing it wrong. :p
