Cool huh, Diane? Not sure what reentrant tuning is. I always forget what the name of each scale length on the ukes (haha). I love the tone he's getting and the way he makes playing look effortless. I always have to make faces when I play. Glad you liked it. Ithink someone already mentioned this, but there are some great ones on uketube, also.

Wow, Wade! I watched his other vids, too! A tenor is 17", sounds like he is not using reentrant tuning, but I could be wrong.

that should read GDAE, pinhead.

I am lazy. I don't want to learn any new chord shapes right now. So I have decided to tune my coming banjolele as a wonky mandolin.

Standard uke is G C E A

I'm going to tune G D E A, by raising the second string and switching the bottom two strings.

So, that's my story and I'm sticking with it. High, low, high, low.
