Is a concert or tenor ukulele better for a beginner? Based on cursory research I prefer the music of the tenor (like the fuller, more guitar-like sound). I know a few chords on guitar, but otherwise have no string experience. The local stores here in Boston seem to only carry soprano and concerts, from which I infer that tenors are not as popular with the beginners (?). I'm a petite little lady with small hands to match and portability is one but not the only consideration. If you have a recommendation for an instrument and online vendor, and a good book to start self-teaching with, I'd also appreciate those! Hoping not to spend more than $75. Thanks much.
