    Default Re-Stringing a Baritone

    Hey Gang,

    This maybe either a really simple, stupid question .....BUT

    Can you re-string a Baritone uke (D-G-B-E tuning) to a standard tuning (G-C-E-A)?

    THANKS ANYONE WHO CAN HELP

    Yes, and it sounds great. Aquila makes baritone GCEA string sets. There are also some interesting new ideas for strings and tunings on these forums lately.

    If you can play standard C tuning, you can play G tuning; only difference is the chord names.

    I have one of my bari's DGBE and one gCEA, MGM has the Aquila sets and sells a single low g string for them. Sounds great with low g.

    Exactly! The standard baritone tuning (same as the top four strings on a guitar) is relatively the same as GCEA with a low G.
