    Whether to tune baritone ukulele like five-string banjo or like guitar

    Why ? Do you * want * to play guitar ? ( More specifically standard tuned guitar) If you do , great , go for it . If not particularly so , there is no need or obligation . And to really mix things up , DGBD = the top 4 strings of an Open G tuned guitar ( or Dobro) .

    When is it a good time to try low G?

    Ok , so Ukes are like Lay's patato chips , I can't have just one . I need 2 , if not 3 . I would probably tune a Baritone DGBD , to carry over from GBDGBD on Dobro .
