The guitalele is a new way to play, it was invented by Yamaha in 1997 and released as GL1.
It combines the portability of a ukulele with the pitch range of a guitar. Its compact size and tuning make it easy to transport and play.
The guitalele has 6 nylon or steel strings, similar to a classical guitar (A-D-G-C-E-A), but pitched up an octave higher. This is similar to the high 4 strings of a standard guitar (D-G-B-E) but an octave higher: 5 frets up on the guitar will be equivalent to open tuning on the guitalele. The result is that you can play a standard 6 string guitar chord chart on the guitalele using simple fingerings.
The combination of these features make the guitalele an ideal instrument for beginners, young players and people who want something smaller and more portable than a regular guitar.
Guitalele is becoming a popular instrument for many guitar and ukulele players. The guitalele combines the portability of the ukulele with the six string, familiar guitar tuning. Guitaleles are usually tuned to A-D-G-C-E-A like a guitar but up a fourth to make it sound higher pitched. This tuning makes the strings much tighter and sounds more like a classical guitar. Another advantage is that you can use special tuned guitar strings and capos as well as regular ukulele strings, tuners, and capos. Because of this the guitalele makes a great travel instrument because you only need one set of strings, tuners, and capos to make it work.
The guitalele has become a great instrument for songwriters because it is portable and easy to play with its nylon strings. Making chords on a guitalele is easier than on steel string guitars because of its smaller size and easier to fret notes. You can also play from standard guitar chords which makes it easier if you know how to play guitar already.
The guitalele also makes music more fun because of its small size, so you can play without having
The guitalele is a hybrid between the classical guitar and the ukulele, six strings instead of four and tuned like the first four strings of a guitar with a high G instead of low G. This means that guitar players can use their same fingerings on this new instrument and play at a higher pitch with a different tone.
The guitalele sounds more like a classical guitar than any other ukulele, but when strummed gently it sounds more like an ukulele. This gives the musician a lot of flexibility in the type of sound they want to produce, but still keeping their preferred fingerings.
This new instrument is one of many new types of ukuleles that are coming out in the market, such as the banjolele, which combines the banjo and ukulele; or newer versions of the ukulele such as the baritone, tenor or soprano ukuleles.

The guitalele is a hybrid between the guitar and the ukulele. It is a compact 6 string instrument that is pitched up to A (or the same as Baritone Uke).
The guitalele was originally created by Yamaha, but there are now many different types of guitaleles available from other manufacturers.
The guitalele has a similar tuning to the top 4 strings of the guitar: A D G C E A. The body size is also similar to a classical guitar and as a result it has quite a deep sound for such a small instrument.
Guitarists will find it easy to switch over to the guitalele and play in standard tuning without having to change how they play, since all the intervals between strings are exactly the same as a standard guitar. This means that all your chords will be in the same places and you can use any guitar chord book with your guitalele.
The guitalele (pronounced “guitar-lele” [“gwitaˈleːle]) is a cross between a classical guitar and a tenor ukulele, with six nylon strings in six courses. Invented by the Yamaha Corporation, it was introduced in 1997 as a travel guitar and has been produced by the company since then. The guitalele is tuned to ADGCEA, like a guitar capoed at the fifth fret. The guitalele is tuned up an octave relative to a standard guitar, so that the same fingering on the fretboard produces higher notes. A standard set of strings for the guitalele has an overall string gauge of approximately 0.028 inches (0.71 mm), but thicker sets are available for additional tension.
The guitalele’s small size is supposed to make it easier to hold than a full-scale guitar, and its tuning and playing technique resemble those of the ukulele. It was designed as an instrument which could be played by both guitarists and ukulelistas alike.
The guitalele is a cross between a guitar and ukulele. A guitalele is tuned like a guitar but sounds like a ukulele. The guitalele is also known as the “Guitarlele”. The Guitalele was introduced in 1997 by Yamaha and has become quite popular.
The guitalele is tuned A D G C E A with six strings. In other words, it is tuned exactly as a guitar but pitched up by an octave or twelve steps up on the piano.
The guitalele has nylon strings just like the classical guitar, however, the gauges are lighter than those found on a classical guitar. The strings that you find on a guitar and on the guitalele are not interchangeable because of the difference in scale length, string tension and string height are different.
The scale length of a standard guitar is 25 1/2 inches while the scale length of a standard guitalele is 21 inches. If you put some light gauge guitar strings on your guitalele it will most likely sound really bad and probably damage your instrument since there would be too much tension on the neck of your instrument!
