So… that being said. If you play guitar, the transition is a comfortable one.
You are confronted by REENTRANT TUNING UNING, UNING!!

Not a guitar player? No biggie. Just be open and loosey goosey.
Your badassery is right around the corner.
Secret Post Script: If you play banjo, you may well already be a ukulele badass… and you probably know why.
