A Guitarlele is exactly what you might think it is, a combination of a guitar and a ukulele. A hybrid that includes the six strings of a guitar and the small playability of a ukulele, the guitarlele offers hours of musical experimentation.
It is far smaller and narrower than a standard acoustic-guitar but substantially larger than a regular ukulele. Like a guitar, the guitalele has six strings.
The guitarlele instrument is tuned in such a manner that chords and scales that you play on the guitar can be immediately applied to the guitalele. The one main difference is that the instrument must be tuned a 4th higher than the guitar. With this higher pitch, when you play chords strumming only the four higher pitched strings, the guitalele sounds quite similar to a ukulele.
When you play all six strings, such as open guitar chords, the instrument has qualities more closely related to a guitar than ukulele. Shop for the Guitarlele that suits you online at B Sharp Music shop Ireland.
