LESSONSeries : Reading Standard Music Notation for Ukulele
Natural, Sharp and Flat Notes of the `Ukulele Fingerboard - G Tuning
The G Tuning comes in two versions where string four is either tuned to the "D", a major second below string one or low "D" where string four is a perfect fifth below string three. The G tuning with a low D is the same as the thin four strings of a standard tuned guitar.
Any tuning is possible on a ukulele as long as the construction supports it and a string is available.
G Tuning is common on the Baritone ukulele and can also be used on a tenor ukulele with a high D string four.
All notation examples are show in concert pitch.
Key of "G" Tuning — For Baritone and Tenor ukulele. The same as the higher four strings of a standard tuned guitar. So you already know how to play the Baritone and Tenor Ukulele.
String 4 can also be tuned up one octave. A tuning that the great jazz ukulele player Lyle Ritz favors.
