UKULELE BARÍTONO: HOW TO PLAY AND TUNING

What's up Ukuleleria friends!


Do you already know the 4 main sizes of ukuleles? As many of us already know, there are different sizes of ukulele and each one having a sound box of different size gives a somewhat different power and acoustics.

There are the sopranos ukuleles that are the smallest and the “standard” size for the instrument, the concert sizes that being a little larger allow greater comfort to the person who is learning, the tenor sizes that I highly recommend to guitar players who Suddenly, they learn to learn this new instrument, all with an equal tuning (GCEA), but the last size is something a little more different and special than the others, and personally one of my favorites!


“The Baritone Ukulele”


The baritone ukulele is the largest size of the 4 main sizes of the ukulele, being larger has a greater resonance thanks to the size of its box ...


The baritone ukulele does not have the same nylon strings as conventional ukuleles, this one It has metal and nylon strings like the guitar strings, and in fact the tuning is the same as the first strings or the "down" strings of the guitars (DGBE) this obviously gives completely different melodies to those of the other sizes of the ukuleles so IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO Tune your UKULELE BARÍTONO AS OTHERS since it is possible, but the strings are very very tight and this can damage the neck of your uku causing it to become curved.

As I explained this ukulele has a guitar tuning so it will not sound like a conventional ukulele, however, the footsteps THEY ARE THE SAME than those of a normal uku only that they will change their name for their different tuning, then the ukus commonly have these footsteps:


ABCDEFG


El ukulele is tuned in QUINTAS, that is to say, the tuning of a ukulele is equivalent to the tuning of a guitar but with a bonnet in the 5th fret, so that the footsteps of a baritone ukulele are equivalent to the notes ...

ABCDEFG

The advantage of a baritone ukulele is that you can use strokes of ukulele in this instrument but it gives a more serious sound like that of a guitar, honestly this combination is fantastic!
