The most common ukulele tuning is G-C-E-A (from the upper string to the lower string), this is the C tuning. Some prefer the D tuning, which is A-D-F#-B, very popular in the twenties.

One convenient way to tune your ukulele, if you don't have an electronic tuner is visiting ukulele.nl :

This is a flash online application that shows you how to proceed :
- chose your tuning (I recommend C - soprano)
- click on the pegs and you will hear the note to reach for each string

You can learn a lot on the ukulele on this site.
