    Thanks for the video Brad. Really like that song. Did you just tune your g string an octave lower than normal? You seem to have that one down nicely. I will have to try it. Are you playing a tenor ukulele? I was considering going to a baritone and tuning it to GCEA any advice would be helpful.

      Aloha Frank, I use what’s called a “low-G string.” It’s meant to be tuned an octave lower. A normal high-g will be super floppy at that pitch. Yes, playing a tenor. I haven’t tried tuning my baritone GCEA. You need special strings to make sure you aren’t putting too much tension on the instrument. ~Brad
