    If you are a complete beginner then get a traditional figure 8 shaped acoustic ukulele. You want to learn ukulele get a ukulele, banjo-uke is a completely different animal from a tone perspective. Unless you want to learn to play banjo, but you did say ukulele.

    A banjo uke is neither a uke or a banjo. I have two of them and seldom play either. I also have banjos.

    True, with a BU one can play clawhammer, but, for real clawhammer, he/she would need the fifth string. He/she can also play it like a tenor banjo but not in the correct tunings. Three finger or Bluegrass is also out because of the missing 5th string. So one is left with a little tenorish banjo that doesn’t really even sound like a banjo.

    Ukulele tunes can be played on a BU, of course, but, IMO, they’d really sound better on a uke.
