    I have been playing for a while and I'm pretty good at stretch chords, but I can only just play 0259 on a soprano. I tried it on my tenor and it sounds a bit squeaky. Anyway, it's really difficult....

    Try the Aquila Red low G. The unwound one that is sold separately, not the wound one that comes as part of a set. It isn't my favorite, but you might like it because it is thinner than many options...

    I also have a Fremont Soloist tuned to G3 on one of my concert ukes and it sounds fine. I think you'll need to be more specific for us to help you.

    I'm a bit of a magpie. I pick bits up from all over the place. I've used youtube tutorials, online tabs, books, DVDs, paid courses, and Skype lessons as the mood has taken me.

    When you buy a low G set of Aquila Reds, they come with a wound string. When you buy a single Aquila Red low G string, it is not wound. It is an entirely different thing.
