Is the Ukulele a Good Instrument for Playing Christmas Carols?

With its bright, cheery sound, and fun, lighthearted style, I believe the ukulele is an excellent instrument for the joyous Christmas season.

Because the instrument is relatively easy to learn, you can also spend some holiday time teaching your family and/or friends to play, and then you can strum and sing the carols together.

Ukuleles can also make great gifts as they are relatively inexpensive and can be enjoyed by pretty much anyone.

Why do the Tabs only use the bottom three strings?

Ukulele tabs meant for re-entrant tuning (high G) generally only use the bottom three strings for plucking out melodies.

This is because the G (top) string is very close to in pitch to the A and E strings, and so including it in the tab usually unecessary.

Now for other styles of ukulele playing (finger-style, claw-hammer, etc.), the top string is often used, even in re-entrant tuning.

    Is there any maintenance of Can do to try and fix it, or do I need to by new tuning pegs? But if I do I want to keep them as authentic as possible.
