The standard tuning for soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles is; from fourth to first string, Sun, do, my, the, (from top to bottom), with all the notes in the same octave. The name of the chord that forms when you play the strings in the air is C6. You will find it in writing as g, C, E, A. With this tuning, unlike the usual stringed instruments, the fourth string sounds sharper than the third, This is called reentrant




Another usual tuning is the call LOW G o in do with fourth grave. The notes are the same as in standard tuning, sun, do, my, the; but in this case the fourth string is tuned one octave lower, resulting more serious than the third G, C, E, A, (what every guitarist will expect).
