Always Pluck and Turn!

Be sure to pluck the string as you turn the peg to hear if the pitch of your string is getting closer to the reference pitch.  This will also make sure that you do not break the string by turning the peg too tight.

You might find it hard to tune by just listening to a pitch and turning the peg. Lots of people love clip on digital tuners which tell you whether to tune up or down.  You can get one from our ukulele store. (Full disclosure: we make a small commission if  you buy from this link.  The commission doesn’t affect the price you pay.)
