How To Change Ukulele Strings - Beginners Guide

Surprised I have never posted a video like this before, but a number of people had suggested that a video would be helpful. How to change ukulele strings! One for absolute beginners.

I would recommend all beginners learn how to change their strings at an early stage.

  2. I have a vtab and there doesn't seem to be anyway of undoing the string. I assume it's attached underneath how would i go about that?

    1. They use a 'through body bridge' which can be fiddly - you have to push the string back into the body and fish the knotted and out through the sound hole.

  3. So basically I'll need to go to a shop to do it? How do you get it back in? Way too complicated for me. Thank you for your quick reply though.

    1. No, you really don't. To put a string on you push into the bridge, pull the bare end out of the soundhole, tie a knot in it then pull it back.

  4. Ignore that last comment I have re watched the review video and you explain on there. So I thread it through first (kind of backwards) and then tie a knot. Right I will give it a go. Thank you again for this site very informative.
