TUNING THE UKE
UKE PITCH PIPES
You can buy an inexpensive Uke "tuner"
at most music stores. The "pipes" of the
tuner will be named A (4th string), D (3rd),
F# (2nd), and B (1st). If in doubt as to the
name of a string refer to Inside Front Cover.
Blow lightly into one pipe at a time and
tune its corresponding string to the pitch of
the pipe. Pick the string continuously as
you blow the pipe so that you can tell when
the pitch of the string is the same as that of
the tuner.
TUNE WITH PIANO
The pitch of the 3rd string (D) is found by the key
to the right of "middle C," the 28th white key from the
right of the keyboard. Tune the D string first, then the
2nd, 1st, and 4th strings in that order.
Keep the "loud" pedal of the piano depressed when
sounding each note. This will cause the piano tone to
remain sounding while your hands are busily engaged in
tuning the Uke/
B or 1st string — the 23rd white key from the right of the keyboard.
F# or2nd string —the black key between the 25th and 26th white keys.
D or 3rd string — the 28th white key from the right of the keyboard.
A or 4th string — the 24th white key from the right of the keyboard.
