    Come on Anubis, Obviously someone Knows how to tune a uke. Otherwise , after the first one was ever made, who would build another one that "nobody" knew how to tune?

    Just for curiosity I decided to do a quick web search. It took all of about 20 seconds to find at least 4 websites with the info you want.

    I even wrote down the popular tunings to post for you.But I had second thoughts and decided that if I had time to look it up, so do you!

    I would suggest "Ask Jeeves" as a starting place.

    Sorry if I didn't give you the help that you hoped for.(not really) :)

    When I was a kid, my neighbor played a ukelele... He used to always tune it by singing those four words forwards and backwards, plucking a string with each word. I can still hear him in my head... Years later, when I picked up a ukelele at a garage sale, I was able to tune it using the same method. No science involved!!! Mostly luck I would guess!
