How to Use this Tuner: To the right there is an image that explains the numbering of the strings on an ukulele. Click on the note for the string you want to tune and then turn the tuning pegs on your ukulele and match it up with the note that is being played. Adjust the volume on your computer until it is close to the volume of the sound your ukulele produces so one sound does not overwhelm the other. In this tuner there are two tones provided, a natural ukulele sound, and a computer generated frequency that is exactly the correct pitch, use whichever you find easier to use.
