It is a wonderful instrument for accompanying informal group singing, either out-of-doors 011 summer nights or around the fire during a winter evening.

One reason for the ukuleles great popularity is the ease with which it can be played. It calls for no technical knowledge of music and is probably the easiest to play of all the stringed instruments. The average person should be able to strum a tune or play an accompaniment of rich and harmonious chords after no more than a few hours of experimenting and practicing.

One thing that is a great help to beginners is that in music arranged for the ukulele, the chords that are to be played are usually indicated by fingerboard diagrams printed over or under the notes. These diagrams will help you to use correctly the chords described in this chapter. The Strings and Notes of the Ukulele The ukulele has four strings, which are tuned to the notes A, D, F and B. The strings, together with the piano notes to which they correspond and the position of the notes in printed music, are shown in Fig.

17. You will notice right away that the fourth string is tuned differently from the fourth strings on other stringed instruments. Instead of being lower in pitch than the other three strings, it is almost as high in pitch as the first string. The ukulele is tuned to the piano notes to which its strings correspond, The method of tuning astringed instrument is de scribed in Tuning the Violin in the chapter on The Violin 36 D which we would ask you to please refer to for a full explana tion.

If no piano is available you can tune your uke as follows Tighten the first or B string until it is taut and gives off a clear tone. This will probably make it sound pretty close to the tone B. Put a finger against the second fret of the fourth or A string and then tighten the A string until it sounds exactly the same as the B string...
