Tune your Ukulele

The very first thing you’ll need to do when starting to play the Ukulele is to tune your instrument. In this lesson we will teach you how.

Tuning your Ukulele

First, listen a compare each string with the sound produced by this Ukulele:

If your Ukulele is tuned, each string would be producing the same sound. If not, then you would need to tune each string by following the pattern shown in the following video:

1st string: G
2nd string: C
3rd string: E
4th string: A

Tune the 1st string by matching the sound produced in the video when the string is played. Then tune the second one by pressing the 1st string at the 5th fret. Tune the 3rd one by pressing the 4th fret of the 2nd string. Lastly, tune the last string by pressing the 2nd fret of the 1st string.
