    Question My ukulele riffs sound wrong

    Trying to match Karl Golden's 100 ukulele riffs, but the riffs doesn't sound right when played on my ukulele.

    I have done the custom tuning GBEA shown in the video - in my case using chromatic tuning.

    Does any of you know if Karl is using a different kind of tuning than chromatic or if there's something else that can go wrong?

    Thanks

    Thanks! That's super awesome.

    I haven't been using a pick, so I'll give that a try in a few hours (very early morning here, so don't think my family will appreciate an attempt right now...). Same with the tuning

    I watched a bit of this video and the audio has substantial enhancement as the uke is cheap and poorly intonated. He only seems to use three strings for power chord approximation and basically ignores the g. I doubt that these tabs will allow you to play along with most of the original songs as keys are different.

    Thanks. I'm trying to do the riffs, not the whole original songs.

    Trying to use the pick now, but it's a bit more different than expected vs. using the fingers alone. But I'll give it some more tries over the coming the days
