Watch the video below to understand the parts of the ukulele.
Another thing to learn is ukulele string numbers.
When you first get your ukulele it will have brand new strings. New strings go out of tune a lot until they are stretched. Then, they stay in tune great.
How long does it take for the strings to stretch? 2-3 days if you tune your uke every few hours, a week if you tune your uke once a day.
Most people find it hard to tune a string 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 here.
