Thread Name: advice sought ukulele tuning
Subject: RE: advice sought ukulele tuning
just broke my first string - a tenor in the G tuning.

perhaps its this hot weather.

in such circumstances - do you tend to change all the strings on the uke, as i would on the guitar?

also the way the strings appear to be tied round the bridge seems a bit fussy to me. why not just tie a big knot and put it on the the side of the neck opposite the neck?

when i put the new string on, i think i will do the F tuning to make it a bit less prone to break.

what do you recommend in the way of strings that settle down quickly and don't break too often?
