The tuning note is C
a above the middle C
Not exactly. "A" is actually the tuning note (6 notes above middle C). In the US, it is at 440 mhz, in the UK, it is 435 mhz, and in Australia it is 445 mhz.
With a standard tuning, the lowest note is G below middle C on the piano.
First, the orchestra does not tune to an "A." It tunes to a "concert B flat." This is of course, is concert pitch, so it depends on the instrument playing it. "C" instruments play a "B flat," "B flat" instruments play a "C," "E flat" instruments play a "D flat" The instrument typically tuned to is either the oboe (C), bassoon (C), or, in the absence of these, the clarinet (B flat). The reason for this is because these instruments have the least variability in tuning when assembled.Typically, the orchestra tunes to the Oboe playing "A". Usually A-440. Zubin Mehta used to tune his orchestra's to A-448 which rendered a brighter tone overall.
The standard tuning used in most places is gCEA with re-entrant tuning. So the notes are G, C, E and A with the C string being the lowest note.
The A above middle C ... it should be 440 Hertz
GCEA is the current standard tuning, from the top down. The C is the lowest note.
There are many ways of tuning an ukulele. The standard tuning in most places is GCEA, with the C being the lowest note. The Baritone ukulele is usually tuned DGBE.
It will depend on what your tuning your instrument to. The standard from the top of the instrument is GCEA, and the C is the lowest note.
The ukulele uses re-entrant tuning. Yes, the G string is lower than the C string.Alternatively, you can tune it with a low G.
