Guitalele is a hybrid between the guitar and ukulele. It was created by Yamaha in 1997, and its purpose was to provide a tonal quality that can be produced by both guitar and ukulele.
The guitalele is mainly used for playing folk, pop, blues, and rock music. Although it’s very similar to a classical guitar in terms of size, its sound is much more like an ukulele.
While the fretboard is identical to a classical guitar (from the nut to the 12th fret), the guitalele has six nylon strings tuned as follows: A-D-G-C-E-A.
The guitalele’s tuning allows musicians to play guitar chords with only one finger on each string. This makes it much easier for beginners to learn how to play the instrument.
A guitalele is a cross between a guitar and a ukulele.
It’s called many different names: guitalele, guitar-ukulele, kiku, mini guitar, etc.
The guitalele was developed in the 1990s as a travel instrument by Yamaha.
Guitalele tuning is ADGCEA (or DGBE). The same as the top five strings of a guitar but an octave higher.
The standard scale length for a guitalele is 19 inches.
Guitar strings can be used for the guitalele but will give you better tone with appropriate strings.
Guitareles are often tuned down to make them easier to play. The most common alternative tuning is C6 tuning which is CGDAEG.
A guitalele’s tuning is pitched up to ‘A’, which is the same as a guitar with a capo on the 5th fret.
The strings on a guitalele are numbered from 1-6, starting with the string nearest your face.
The first string (1st string) is tuned to A (5th fret guitar).
