Easy for beginners, and a blast for seasoned musicians. This unusual 4-string diatonic instrument plays like a uke and is tuned to one specific key (C,D, E or F), with the high double strings tuned in unison. Its punchy tone and a banjo-ish twang adds a bright, folk voice to a classroom of ukuleles or guitars. Pluck single-note melodies or strum all the strings for drone notes while moving the melody line up and down the fingerboard— it sounds great any way you play it.
Notice how easy it is to see the whole steps and half steps by the width of the frets? It’s a great way to introduce theory.
