B Natural minor Ukulele Scale - D-Tuning
View this scale in: Standard Tuning (gCEA) G-Tuning (DGBE) Slack-key Tuning (gCEG)
A natural minor scale has the same notes as its relative major scale. However, we start on the sixth note, known as the Aeolian mode. Because the sixth is a minor any song using this scale will often have a sad or melancholy feel to it.
