Tossing around ideas for a Tenor build. One thing that has me a little puzzled in these early stages is fret spacing. Do Tenors have the same fret spacing as a regular guitar neck? I thought they did…Continue

Well, shows what I know. I thought a baritone uke was dgbe and the D was an octave higher.

Anyhoo, here's the mandolin chord chart link:

a 19" scale GDAE is a baritone ukulele

All my four strings have been tenors, but even shorter -- 19". I tune them GDAE, like a fiddle or mandolin. The fifth tunings are great because many chords require only 2 fingers - so good for beginners like me.

I use tenor guitar string sets which I think are .032, 022, 014 and 010

There is an octave mandolin chord chart out there that shows all the important chords for GDAE tuning, broken into groups depending on what key you are playing in. I'll try to find the link. Very helpful at a jam when they keep switching keys!
