Systems tuning They seek to build a series of vibratory frequency relationships that give rise to the notes of an instrument.
Currently the diatonic musical scale (without alterations or changes in tone) is composed of seven sounds. In the case of the aforementioned major scale of C, the notes are as follows:
Do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si (according to the Latin musical notation system) C, D, E, F, G, A, B (according to the English musical notation system, also called literal denomination) C, D, E, F, G, A, H (according to the German musical notation system. The B is equivalent to flat).
In addition to the sounds represented by these seven monosyllables or notes, there are five other sounds that are obtained by raising or lowering a semitone or half tone. To lower or raise the sounds, alterations such as flat, sharp,
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). It is a tuning linear.
C tuning with fourth bass
The usual tuning of the Baritone Ukulele is linear and identical to that of the first four strings of the guitar: re, sun, yes, my. The common is that the fourth string is the most serious, but you can also use the tuning en Reentrant G (dGBE) changing the fourth string.

You can use the tuning en Reentrant in your baritone riding the right string set
In case you are new to this of the Ukuleles you should know that it is important to tune your instrument before playing. Moreover, it is important to know when it is not in tune (to know if your musical ear works). To tune correctly you should know that you will need a External source, such as another instrument, a tuning fork, or a tuning flute; an apparatus that produces a well-tuned note, which will serve as the basis. Another way is to use an electronic tuner which will help us to do it quickly and accurately.
We share this video where the types of tuners that you can use are explained to make tuning very simple.
