Thread: Tuning question?...

  1. #1

    Default Tuning question?...

    Hello all, I am a newbie to Uke. I have a concert scale Little Gem....I also have 2 banjos....both 5 strings. What I would like to do is tune my older 5 string to a low g Uke tuning. So now Iím wondering what to do with the 5th string...do I leave it high G or some other key. My inclination is make it a C. Thoughts....

    As both a ukulele and banjo player I'd suggest removing the 5th string completely, also be prepared to choose some compromise tuning for the long neck, then fit a capo to bring the instrument up to pitch, else you're likely to run into all sorts of tension problems
    There are those who will wax lyrical about the ability to play a double shuffle with a split fan and a tight G-string ...
    it just makes me walk funny!
