I have a Soprano Ukulele, in standard GCEA tuning, and I've signed up for a 'Ukulele Summer School' (a special deal for 5 weeks of lessons with a little bit of money off) to try to get started on the right foot.
I want to practice between lessons to get the best out of it of course, however I'm having real difficulty tuning my Ukulele - primarily, determining whether each string is or is not in tune.
I've tried using the Online Ukulele Tuner which plays the sound of each string, however when I try to tune each string with small adjustments, I can't for the life of me tell when it sounds "right". (I'm definitely not tone-deaf or anything like that. I actually took part in a research study recently which measured aural sensitivity distinguishing between tones - and scored very highly.) So I'm not sure what my problem is.
Any tips? :)
I really want to get the most out of my lessons and it's starting to panic me a little that I'll never be able to tune for myself!
