Post subject:  Tuning for Fender Nohea baritone ukulele?

I bought a Fender Nohea baritone ukulele http://www.fender.com/bluegrass-ukes/ukulele/ukulele-nohea-all-koa/0955640021.html#start=1 and I can't tell what kind of turning it wants. Normally a baritone uke is tuned like the top 4 strings of a guitar. But the Nohea is strung as if it would be an octave lower than a soprano uke; the 4rth string is thinner than the 3rd, for example

Can anyone tell me how it's supposed to be tuned?

The link you posted is for a tenor uke :wink:
The tuning is G-C-E-A, and it seems to have the high G.

D'oh! It only says "tenor" about 15 different places on the page. Thanks very much.

That's just a little embarrassing.

You can tune your tenor ukulele to Standard or Low G or Canadian ukulele tuning.

Standard ukulele tuning is (g-C-E-A)
Low G ukulele tuning is (G-C-E-A)
Canadian ukulele tuning is (ADF#B)

This online ukulele tuner supports all above mentioned tunnig types + 8 more

Good luck !

No need to be ashamed of anything, we all have been there :D

Tune a uke to ADF#B or GCEA and listen. 'My dog has fleas' is an old phrase which relates the vowel sounds of the spoken phrase to the sound of the sequence of notes: 5th, tonic, major 3rd, 6th.

In my case, I felt the urge to acquire a tenor guitar, so I took my tenor ukulele, that I play rarely as a uke, and tuned it with Aquila CGDA strings to tenor guitar tuning. For my ears, it sounds OK.
