    Usually strumming with low G C6 tuning does not work in my opinion as well as re-entrant standard one. Except in some keys.

    In terms of keys, the guitar and baritone will have one "sharper" signature more. If like me you know the basic guitar chords then it might make sense to remember their names in both tunings, also in...

    To op, you must realize tuhat g6 tuning is way too low for ukulele. C6 is good for a concert uke and sopranos may sound better with D6. So dgbe that is 4th lower is a no go.

    Because it is in the same soprano range. The word concert means only size. The tenor means also only size, because it is tuned as a soprano or sometimes like an alto range. Tenor is a stupid naming,...

    I'd never buy ukulele again, except when i have the 2 I have breaks one of them. I find it totally disgusting the threads about UAS. Just play guys/girls with what you have.

    We ukulele players tend to have the problem with sopranoes in that the strings are too floppy. Strings being less in tension does not mean that playing with too high nut action makes it easier for...

    It is not that I can't play the standard C#m chord , 6444. C#m is not used that often, except in the keys of E and A and their relative minors. B also, but that is a rather rare key.
    I just don't...

    If we want play melodies, the normal soprano is very limited. With concert and 14 frets, we re-entrant with ukes are still still missing the C scale double octave. I doubt also if the extended...
