I've got a ukulele using a modified mandolin tuning - by which I mean the strings are GDAE, with the G an octave high, as in standard uke tuning, but with the E tuned an octave low. (The D and the A are just tuned like a mandolin.)

My understanding is that it's correct to use the term reentrant tuning for the low E as well as the high G. But I thought I'd check here if others agree with that terminology. I! case I run into a musical pedant who sees it differently.

I saw that, but I'd sooner trust the Mudcat on this than Wikipedia. And the company is better.
