Spartanburg Ukuleles is a local Ukulele Club out of Spartanburg County South Carolina. We are secular and apolitical. We welcome players of all skill levels to our facebook group and our MeetUps. Well behaved children are welcome with an accompanying adult. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7 pm and the 1st Saturday of each month at 2 pm at Spartanburg Community College's Downtown Campus at 220 E. Kennedy Street, Rm 136, Spartanburg, SC 29302. Enter on the backside through the Evans Academic Center Entrance.

We use The Daily Ukulele for many of our songs as well as song sheet handouts on a projector.

We have great relationships with Uke Galleria, Roper Music, and Guitar Center all in Spartanburg.

How do I turn a soprano Uke into a Baritone? Can this be done with a Capo?

Default Soprano to Baritone

It's a different body size and tuned differently. If you don't know already, soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles are commonly tuned to standard tuning: g-C-E-A. A baritone ukulele is tuned lower like the bottom four strings of a guitar: D-G-B-E. A baritone ukulele has a deeper, lower-pitched sound.

Hello! Sounds great! How good should I be able to play? I just learned a couple of chords on a friend's ukulele. And I plan to buy a tool for myself. Perhaps you can tell which ukulele is better for a beginner?

All skill levels are welcome. We have had people show up who have never played a ukulele before that day. It takes a second to teach you how to play the C chord and if that's all you know, follow along and play it when it comes up. "Just Enjoy Yourself" is our unofficial motto.

You have to decide which ukulele fits you best. Many people recommend spending at least forty dollars, not counting a gigbag or accessories, on a ukulele. A really cheap uke doesn't stay in tune, sound good, or have a good finish and can have sharp fret wires or other issues. It's better if you can pick up and try ukuleles than to just randomly pick one on Amazon or eBay. MimsUkes.com does a setup on every ukulele she sells. I have an Ohana SK-10 I bought from her through reverb.com that I love. Locally there is the Uke Galleria in Westgate Mall, Roper Music on Main Street, and Music & Art by Ollie's, and Guitar Center by Barnes & Noble.

If you are worried about committing, come to a meetup and let me know you will be there and I will bring an extra ukulele for you to try at the meetup. Please join our facebook group.

I'm so glad you answered me! Thank you! I like your motto, I try to apply it in many life situations. And I'm very glad that you take even without skills.
Sorry, but what is gigbag? I’ve never heard about it. And in fact, I'm ready to spend more than $ 40 on an instrument, I understand why I need to pay such a price for it. In order not to make a 100% random choice, I have already studied quite a lot of ukulele reviews. According to reviews and the first place in the rating, this model is a good - Luna Guitars VMB RDS. And for comparison, I chose this Cordoba 15CM-E or Ukulele ST601. Your one now I also added to the comparison. It is very good that such a ukulele does not have a very high price. I like!
It remains the most difficult, choose a model, place an order and wait for the parcel.
Thank you very much for the invitation and care! But I will be in your area in about 2-3 months. Most likely, by this time I will be able to come with my ukulele. And maybe I will know more than two chords.
