Aaron Keim || Shows Four Different Ways to String/Tune Your Baritone Ukulele

Aaron Keim gives some Bari tuning sound samples.

Mya-Moe makes some nice looking baritone ukuleles.
Apparently they are also selling strings now.
See Aaron's comments on the video for more information.


  1. Do you ever tune like a tenor guitar, or violin-mandolin? It would seem that the four strings of the bari could be tuned just as any other four stringed instrument, which, the ever-popular guitar notwithstanding, is most stringed instruments, including the banjo if you regard the 5th string as primarily a drone. As you know, banjos and guitars have an almost unlimited variety of tunings from the days before there was a "standard tuning," and there is no reason the bari can't tap into that, too.

  2. Thanks Larry for your comment. I was thinking the exact same thing as I was listening to Aaron. I have seen the GDAE on a few videos. Recently Andellzov played a tune where she dialed back the D to C. There are many times that I wanted a low C. GDAE gives a broader range of notes but I don't know if I am personally ready to go there. If you move from the Mando or Fiddle it may be a more natural transition. Guitar players will often use various open tunings. Jeff / Humble Uker
