which we would ask you to please refer to for a full explana-
tion.

If no piano is available you can tune your uke as follows:

Tighten the first or B string until it is taut and gives off a
clear tone. This will probably make it sound pretty close to
the tone B.

Put a finger against the second fret of the fourth or A string
and then tighten the A string until it sounds exactly the same
as the B string. What you do here is to "stop" the A string
with your finger in the position that makes the tone B. After
you have tuned, remove your finger and the open A string will
sound A.

Put a finger against the fifth fret of the second or F# string
(the position to make the tone B on this string). Tighten the
second string until it sounds exactly the same as the B string.
Release your finger and the open string will sound F#.

Put a finger against the fourth fret of the third or D string
(the position to make F# on this string). Tighten the D string
until it sounds exactly like the F# string. Release your finger
and the open string will sound D.
