    You're right, Ms Bean. That is one option.

    It's just that it would be a bit easier to mess around only with the 4th string and leave the others be.

    Yea, but the thing is, I already have a g and E string, and I wouldn't wanna bother buying a low g string. And wouldn't the action, maybe tone even, be off with the low g nut?

    And like I said, I'm...

    Using an E-string as a low A (and high G) string?

    I'm playing a song that needs a low A string as the 4th. I don't have a low-G uke, but I can play it with a sloppy high G-string.

    I was thinking though, whether it would be wiser to restring so...

    The latter. That's why I was trying to say specifically "chord voicings", to avoid the ambiguity.

    Closed vs. open chord voicings

    How open chord voicings do you do and why? Can you also specify, is it with low or high 4th string?

    Do you mean that the chord voicing is so open that it gets too boomy? Does it depend on the inversion that is used? That is it the I, III or V that's the lowest or something.

    Yeah, basses are an option but I think I'd like a strummable instrument. And to my understanding, it doesn't help either to restring an ubass, since the scale length is that of a bari uke.

  11. Reentrant players: Would you tune your tenor _guitar_ reentrant?

    This has been touched in some other thread maybe, but I think only in the guitar section. I would guess it leaves out many only uke players, and this is a fair question to them too.

    Do you think...

    At least in Amazon it seems it's ADGC and not CDGA? But you're right, the C3 shouldn't be a problem anyway.

    A good point about the 5th fret shapes :)!

    Good point about the string material. But we do agree that the angled saddle is meant for strings that go from thickest to thinnest (or vice versa), i. e. not for re-entrant sets?

    Problem is, the ones I've found tend to have a slanted saddle....
