Step 2 - An "A" from an "E"

When you are tuning your ukulele out in the real world, you will need to be able to produce the note you will need to tune one string - from another string! We just finished tuning our "E" string to some arbitrary "E" note - and now we're going to tune our "A" string to that "E" string.


Press the "E" string (the one you just tuned) against the 5th fret, and pluck it. Guess what note that is? It's an "A"! You have to sort of "carry" the note you get in your head over to the "A" string, and try to tune it to that note in your head. It's a little trickier this way, than when the note you're tuning to keeps playing! You should remember from the ukulele tuning section of the beginner's lessons which string is the "A", and how to tune it.

Although we've spent a bit of time fiddling with tuning pegs and tuning strings, this is the first time we've tried to tune one string to another string. It is a bit trickier. Before you move on, spend a little while de-tuning and re-tuning the "A" string. Also, you might want to check your "E" string using the ukulele tuner at the top of the page - unfortunately, you may have to start over frequently if your uke is "inexpensive" and/or brand new.

Congratulations, you've finished Step 2!
