Lesson 1 – Tuning

We tune because we care.

In this video, I’ll discuss at length what you need to know in order to get your ukulele in tune.

Topics include:

  • Notes of the open strings (G C E A from face to floor)
  • How we number the strings (1, 2, 3, 4 from floor to face)
  • Demonstration and discussion on the use of electronic tuners.
  • Useful mnemonics for open string notes from face to floor:
    • Get Coffee Every Afternoon
    • Green Cats Eat Ants
    • George Clooney Eats Apples
