Selecting a Ukulele

The **`Ukulele** (pronounced *oo-koo-lele*) comes in four standard sizes: Soprano (sometimes called Standard), Concert, Tenor and Baritone. The Baritone is tuned just like the four thin strings of a standard tuned guitar and called “G” tuning (D G B E). The Soprano, Concert and Tenor is typically tuning in a “C” Tuning (G C E A) or “D” tuning (A D F# B). The Tenor can also be tuned like the Baritone ukulele with a high or low string four.. A `Ukulele is: - List item - Small and Portable - Light Weight - Easy on the Fingers - Less Required Fingers ( Four Strings, Four Fingers ) - Less Need for Strumming Accuracy and a low expectation for what is expected from a ukulele player The music you play can be as simple or complex as you want. The Ukulele is a powerful musical instrument for communication in its own right. And, did I mention it’s a lot of fun to play and explore.
