Went to pick up a Baritone Ukulele from my buddy Shane Wagstaff, loved it, but then fell in love with a 4 string resonator that he'd built. Now I've got some...

Fine looking creations. I love my ukes including my bari uke. There are opportunities for all of their voices. :) Put a capo on your bari at the 5th fret and there's your soprano/concert/tenor tuning.

thanks all, I never thought I'd ever get that 'kid in a sweet shop' feeling again, but I have. 
Loving the 'no rules' suits me down to the ground. Cheers folks appreciate your lovely comments.

Great new gits Sammy. And great to see a new vid from you! Dealing with new tunings can be frustrating at first but it's fantastic mental exercise which we all need. 'Specially when we reach a certain age!

Loved it! You do play great like Uncle said. Keep it coming.

Hey, Sammy.  Wrong, you play uke great!   Those string relationships are all the same from the baby ukes to the big ukes.  AND a GDGB.  I love that tuning.  Good singing.  

Sammy, try the finger chords for the key of G. There is a nice 2 finger C chord fretting the small at the first fret and the 3rd at the second fret.   And a nice D7 fretting the small at the first and the 2nd at the second fret.   And a one finger Em fretting the third string at the 2nd fret.  That Em is also your boogie note.   And all across the third is a nice blues chord.

Have fun!
