Can I put guitar strings on ukulele?

Aloha netizens friends!

Today we are going to talk about a very interesting topic, and that is that if you are thinking of buying a Ukulele, or you have one and just started playing, surely you have many doubts that have not been answered, and do not worry, no question is bad, Nobody is born knowing everything about life, and it is always better to ask.

As always in Ukuleleria We like to clear up all the doubts you have so that day by day you grow in your learning of this beautiful instrument, and that is why today we are going to answer a very common question among our first-time community.

Can I put guitar strings on my Ukulele?

And well friends, we understand why the constant comparisons between the guitar and the Ukulele, to begin with physically they have a very similar shape, and really if a person is not familiar with the instruments that exist all over the world, it is very easy to get confused, But there are many differences between a guitar and a Ukulele and one of them is precisely the strings and their tuning.

To begin with, a guitar has 6 strings, they can be nylon or metal, it depends on the type of guitar you use, and even between guitar strings there are different measures. On the other hand, the Ukulele only needs 4 strings, and they are always Nylon.

There we have one of the things why it is not possible to put strings on each other, in addition to the fact that each string has a name and a different tuning in each instrument, for example:

The 6 strings of the guitars have their name and from top to bottom they are called:

  • Rope 6 (More serious) - E / MI.
  • Rope 5 - A / LA.
  • Rope 4 - D / RE.
  • Rope 3 - G / SOL.
  • Rope 2 - B / SI.
  • Rope 1 (Sharper) - E / MI.

Instead, the Ukulele has a different tuning and the strings from top to bottom are called:

  • Rope 4 - G / Sol.
  • Rope 3 - C / Do.
  • Rope 2 - E / Mi.
  • Rope 1 - A / La.
