Thread Name: Uke & Guitar & 3 Matched String Pairs
Subject: RE: Uke & Guitar & 3 Matched String Pairs
Temporarily converting a spare guitar to a faux ukulele is exactly what I did to become comfortable with uke chords before purchasing my first uke. Just remove the two lowest strings from a guitar, capo at the 5th fret, and you have something close enough to a uke that, if you play around with it for a few hours, you can walk into the music store knowing how to play a uke well enough to be able to devote your attention to how the instruments for sale feel and sound instead of stumbling around trying to play an instrument you've never played before.
