In this video we cover everything you need to know about the ukulele itself.
This is particularly important because there are four main different type of Ukulele. This course is only appropriate for three of them - so read on carefully to avoid disappointment!
There are four types of Ukulele; Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone. Each is a different size in that order from smallest to biggest. They all have the same tuning notes, except for Baritone. Larger Ukuleles have more frets and produce a deeper sound, and the baritone has a different tuning because of this bigger size.
- Soprano - 21 inch approx.
- Concert - 23 inch approx - Andy's recommendation
- Tenor - 26 inch approx.
- Baritone - 30 inch approx - NOT appropriate for this course because of different tuning
Please note; Andy's 10 day course is appropriate for all these different sizes EXCEPT for baritone, which has a different tuning and therefore has different finger placements for the chords and notes.
All info on tuning a Ukulele is in the next lesson of this course.
The Ukulele has a very similar anatomy to guitar aside from their smaller size and only having four strings.
