The humble ukulele has undergone something of a renaissance in the last few years, with many professional musicians (from Vance Joy to Bruno Mars to Eddie Vedder) exploring the instrument’s versatility, and many more amateur musicians discovering the joy of learning an accessible, portable instrument

Tuning a Ukulele, 
Basic chord shapes and strumming, 
Learn How to Play a Riff... amaze your friends. 
and Play a song or two.

Ukuleles are available to purchase from $35 (save $10) for those that get bitten by the ukulele bug. 

Who will be teaching? 
Christopher Carr is the owner of The Ukulele Trading Co, a web based Specialist Ukulele Shop. Musical Director of The NUkes Ukulele Ensemble and Member of 8 Piece Band Ukulele Circus. 

Around 2009 CC had a Ukulele Epiphany, like most guitarists he had dismissed the little ukulele as not much more than a toy. But this was a “light bulb moment” realising that the Ukulele was the perfect accessible instrument to teach music on.

High g Tuning Vs Low G Tuning..whats that all about then?

A customer wrote to me asking to explain Hi g and Low G tuning.

"Hi Gillian, 


Thanks for visiting my site and for the email

Re Hi G and Low G setup,  
It is referring to how people would like their strings.  
Some people prefer the standard re Entrant Tuning, ie the g and A strings are thin, and the C and E strings are thick, 
this is whats generally called a "High G tuning"

The other string tuning is Linear tuned, ie the A is the thinnest, the E thicker, the C thicker again and the G thicker again, also called Low G Tuning.  

Both are used with standard ukulele Chords, so no re learning, 
but the real difference is the Low G string  provides a BIG Bass tone, 
where as on the High G tuning its so much more jangly and trebly sounding  (The C string is as low as it goes in Bass tone).

Ukuleles generally come standard as High g Tuning, but it is a very popular option to restring for Low G Tuning. 

Just sold my last Concert so I am currently out of stock, but that should be rectified within the next month when another shipment arrives at the Aussie Wholesaler.

Cheers CC
