How To: Tune a ukulele by ear

Tune a ukulele by ear

WataAtaCrackah teaches you how to tune a ukelele by ear without an electric tuner. Just like a guitar, you start by getting the first string tuned and gradually work on the others. The first step is to get the right pitch of the G string, which is quite a high note. What the G string sounds like is demonstrated. Next, you work on your A string and this should sound like the G string with a finger pressed on the second fret. Then the E string is worked on. The sound of the E string with a finger on the fifth fret should match with the A string. Finally, the C string. The sound of the C string with a finger on the fourth fret should have the same pitch as the E string. With practise, a ukulele can easily be tuned.
