Thread Name: advice sought ukulele tuning
Subject: advice sought ukulele tuning
i got my first serious uke quite recently deciding to give it both barrels concentration wise.
most tuition books advise you to tune the bottom string to G.
however when i got the George Formby Society dvd it suggested tuning a whole tone up with the bottom string on A.
And sure enough it does deliver a more formbyesque sound. crisper and sweeter than G.
Now heres my question - will the same trick work with the tenor and baritone uke?
I don't want to break strings, ans also i wondered if anyone else was doing this already.
