    Default Seasonistas Baritone Thread

    I'm noticing that I'm not the only one who has recently bought a baritone uke, so I thought of opening a thread for us here.

    What I'd like to see is anything to do with baritones that may be useful, all brought together in the one thread.

    So if you find something, please put a description & a link to it in here.

    I'll start off with this link to baritone chord charts.

    & some baritone PDF song sheets,

    & something that may be of interest, 'Low GCEA' strings,

    I've been playing my bari since January and learned the chord changes a good deal, not every one but most, and I find the G chords easier to finger. After playing it for a while I found that the C6 tuned ukes easier to play as well!

    Thanks for the Bari song links. I needed an easier "City of New Orleans" transposition and found it there! I had it in C but the G key seems easier to finger out. I'll try that in this weeks Season 223.

    I must say that the gcea strings sound really nice. I may buy a set to try on my tenor before I shift them to my bari. I've been playing tenors tuned dGBE but maybe the lower C tuning might be better?

    Adding this here for you to hear what the Guadalupe strings sound like on my tenor. The strings are a little slack on the tenor so this is tuned ADF#B.

    That Pono sounded wonderful and you played and sang great too! But another tuning to learn chords to! I'm just getting used to G tuning!

    I've been waiting for the Worth Browns I put on my baritone to settle, to record them while I play something recognizable. I have some Worth Brown Fats that should yield a hi d and I'll try that on the Big Zebra before I get all crazy. I kind of like the re-entrant G tuning.

    I may try tuning my Zebra Tenor to aDF#B. It has Brown Fats on it tuned dGBE and the strings are a little slack. Hmmm....

    Funny you should mention baritone. I took my LoPrinzi Model B out this past week. It may appear in a video tomorrow or Monday. Every time I get it out I wonder why I don't play it more often. I've been preparing a tune for season 222 and 223, but have yet to press record. (Okay, I'll confess, I pressed record more than a few times late last Saturday night and decided not to scare the baby.) With that, I think I'll go pick it up and work on one of those tunes. Stay tuned!

    Thank You Jack. Guadalupe are for GCEA tuned an active lower than the usual tones of a tenor. ADF#B is just tuned a whole step up to take up the slack (But still an active lower) and you still play that tuning just as if its a GCEA. It just requires you to adjust your singing a couple notes higher. No big deal at all.

    That should read OCTAVE lower.

    Edit: Normal Low G is - G3 C4 E4 A4 - so we will be - G2 C3 E3 A3 - if my calculations are right.

    Edit2: Normal baritone is - D3 G3 B4 E4 - I think.
