I have played countless hours and I can’t tell you. I just make up my mind to find the right ukulele. This is a fun thing for people to see. You’re playing in the woods? You get a little nervous? Then you play your ukulele.
Corduroy ukuleles sound great in a variety of styles, and you can find them at a number of places: Ebay, amazon.com, and other internet stores. You can also purchase them on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/165929490724.
U-turn: You can turn the keys to a reverse (1st) octave by pressing your thumb on the center hole; this means that for a 5th-octave, you’ll play the note of your choice, but the sound quality will be much different.

If you play on your right hand, the notes are usually higher because of the way the sound travels up the fingerboard. If you play on your left hand and you tap your fingers on the left hole, the top of the pitch will vibrate and lower. This sounds similar to picking on a guitar in that the notes bounce. If you have played a piano, and you just play the same notes on your left hand and right hand, the key will vibrate in different ways.
Here’s an interesting thing about those bouncing notes, which you will have to play in order to know which ones will sound good for ukulele picking: you can’t just have one. Each key vibrates in a different way. When you tap one key, it will be in a higher octave and your note will be much higher. When you tap another key, it will be in a lower octave and your note will be near the lower note. You can’t just play the same thing on both hands and each time you’re tapping a key, it will be much lower and the note will be near the lowest key. Each key can’t be played equally. If both keys vibrate in the same way, that means they will be playing the same note. The higher the key, the lower the note. If you go to a guitar, and you play the same notes on both hands, you just have to tap one key; it won’t
