This is why I recommended the baritone uke - it's almost like a smaller 
guitar (tuned just like a guitar) and has a fuller sound than the tinkly 
little soprano uke with the fourth string pitched almost as high as the 
first string (my dog has fleas).

To my ear, the soprano uke goes plink-a plink-a . . . and the baritone uke
