    A cheap Soprano question?

    I was recently bought by a well meaning person a Soprano complete with a soft case, which I believe cost around £25.00 = about $37.

I want to get a larger Uke than my Soprano and my reasoning is that, if I can fret this chord on say a Tenor then I should be ok but if I cant then maybe a Concert would be...

    Baritone GCEA is this a bad idea?

    Hi , I am wondering if tuning the Baritone to GCEA is bad for the instrument, strain on the neck. I understand that GCEA strings are made for the Baritone but I read somewhere that the Baritone was given its normal tuning to avoid damage.

    Best Ukulele for music not singing.

    Ukulele for playing just music not singing As I am a complete novice with the Ukulele it may be a daft question but is there a Uke that is better suited to playing musical melodies as I have no desire to sing? My local music shop has loads of Ukulele music books but they all are chords...
