Baritone uke

Posted by beanseo on Monday, November 26, 2007

I was in an IRC shop in metro Indy today and picked up (literally picked up, as in just to play with - I didn't purchase it) a baritone ukelele.  A friend of mine has one of these that he rarely (never) plays.  I was surprised to find it tuned DGBbD.  Is this common?  It was fun to mess with - a pleasant surprise, especially considering my newfound interest in Gm tuning. 

Observations:
- Now that I've been learning CH banjo, I am almost unable to strum any stringed instrument in a normal fashion:  I now seem to NEED to use the clawhammer hand and to CH (if that's an appropriate verb) the bottom string.

- CH-ing the bottom D string on a baritone ukelele does not produce a pleasant effect.
