The ukulele is a small four-stringed guitar that is associated with Hawaiian culture: portable, cheap and simple to play, compared to other instruments. The popularity of the ukulele has only grown recently; It was made as a copy of s small guitar-like instruments that were introduced to the Hawaiians by the Portuguese in the early 19th century. It comes at different sizes, types, and prices. Now, we’ll briefly look at the baritone ukuleles and beautiful songs you can play on it.

The baritone ukulele is the biggest of the four types available. It usually takes a lot of patience and skills for an individual to figure out how to tune it properly. The baritone ukulele is designed to look like a traditional guitar. The difference is that a few strings are often absent. Blues and jazz players mostly use this type of ukulele on a daily basis.

With this ukulele, you will be able to generate a greater number of sounds, thanks to the fact that its tone is more serious and moves away a little from the characteristic sound of a ukulele.

Baritone Ukulele Tuning

To tune a Baritone Ukulele is quite easy since the way to tune it is very similar to that of a guitar. The tuning in G6 is specific to the Baritone Ukulele and the notes that form it are D, G, B, E, as in the first four strings of a guitar. If they are tuned in this way, the tuning will be linear and if we tune the fourth string, an octave more acute will be reentrant.

It’s that easy to make your baritone ukulele song sound incredibly good.
