One of the biggest challenges with learning the baritone ukulele is familiarizing yourself with the fretboard. This is almost always done with scales.
A scale is a family of notes that sound pleasing together. Their relationship between each other gives a tonal feel to the music.
By choosing to play one scale or another you can control the feel of a song and how consonant or disturbing to the ear your notes are.
