Selecting a Ukulele

The ukulele (pronounced oo-koo-lele) comes in four 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.
