Tune-Yards: 7 Second Ukulele Lessons

My baritone needed restringing the other day so I took the opportunity to tune it Tune-Yards style and write up a few of her riffs.

She uses dGBE. Which is baritone tuning with a high-d string. Aquila do make a set of high-d strings but I just moved my old E-string and tuned it to D.

If you put a capo at the fifth fret in dGBE tuning it will give you standard, high-g tuning. That means you can play all these on a standard tuned ukulele and they sound right. I’d particularly recommend giving For You a go. It’s a great bit of picking and sounds even better in standard tuning.
