Tune Your Uke! - Ukulele Tuning For Beginners

October 15, 2016

Welcome new Jam Academy Ukulele Students!


Here you will learn to tune the ukulele! Chris shows how to tune the soprano uke by ear and how to tune with a tuner. 

Video transcription is included below but has been edited for readability.

Hey Yo!

It's Chris Griffin again from Jam Academy Music School

Hey, I'm going to show you today how to tune your ukulele and we're going to do this in a few steps and the first thing that I'm going to show you is what it sounds like [when in tune] so that you can tune it by ear. So, the tuning notes are G - C - E and A.

Kind of a good indicator if your ukulele is in tune is that it should sound pretty good when you hit all of the strings, just by themselves [open strings].

If you haven't got one, I recommend getting a tuner. This is a Snark tuner. A snark tuner clips on and it feels the vibrations of the instrument and it tells you (by doing some really cool math!) what letter each string (or note) is.

-Demonstrates tuner Sharp - too high and how to fix

There you go. There was a short tutorial on how to tune your ukulele. This is a Teton soprano ukulele. A pretty good ukulele. This is a model TS-05 it's kind of their entry level. About $100 retail we sell it for $79 or something.

Great little ukuleles and they make great guitars too. Yeah, I highly recommend the Tetons if you're looking for a good value in a guitar or uke.

Thanks so much for hopping on today
