My kid had one a long time ago that my father in law gave him when he was little. I think it was a soprano. It was pretty small and had four strings. I bought a Mel Bay book for it. I actually did learn a few chords on it. I remember the MY DOG HAS FLEAS tuning thing (could never figure that one out). Anyway, it was cheap and got busted awhile back somehow, but I picked soprano. I think that's what it was.

Mine's a Tenor. Or at least, I think it is, on the grounds that's it's bigger than the one I used to have.

For anyone interested in the diversity of the Uke, may I recommend the truly awe inspiring Beirut, whose album "Gulag Orkestar" is without a doubt one of my favourites of recent years, despite faturing not one guitar...

Pete, I'm surprised you can't see the picture... perhaps it was temporary. Or, go to this page: http://www.ukuleleworld.com/uw_sop.html and click one of the last links, "All The Ukulele Sizes in Inches".

OK, here is what the image says:

Ukulele sizes:
Baritone: 30 x 10 x 3-3/8"
Tenor: 26 x 9 x 2-7/8"
Concert: 23 x 7-5/8" x 2-3/4"
Soprano: 21 x 6-1/2" x 2-5/16"

Perhaps the dashes should be decimal dots, but you get the p... the idea.

So the Sopranos and Tenors are tuned the same with the Baritone tuned like the last 4 strings of a guitar?......
Anyone else?....Dickl?.....

Don't forget the classic, "Shuddupa Your Face".

BUT SERIOUSLY, DID NO-ONE CHECK OUT THE BEIRUT LINK?
