Baritone Ukulele

Baritone Ukulele tuning is not principally different from tuning any other Ukulele. The difference is that a normal tuning for a Baritone Ukulele is D3 G3 B3 E4 and for a Soprano it is G4 C4 E4 A4 (normally).

A baritone ukulele normally has 18 frets and is something between Bass and Tenor Ukulele, so it is deeper than a Soprano.

The Baritones D3 G3 B3 E4 (from low to hi) is the same as the guitars four upper strings, and that is why many guitar players like the Baritone Ukulele. This tuning is linear, or non-re-entrant as some calls it.

If you like the normal Ukulele tuning, you can of course by new strings and tune it like a standard Ukulele with G C E A.
