    I keep my baritone around to remind myself that I really don't want a guitar. I like the sound, but can't quite do the stretch.

    As promised, these links might help get you started if you are interested in fifths tunings:

    Mandolin, octave mandolin and similar GDAE-tuned instruments:

    Tenor guitar, tenor banjo, mandola, and similar CDGA-tuned instruments:

    Hope this helps!

    There are a few sites that have a PDF that you can download that shows ALL of the chords for MANDOLIN, which is GDAE, and also any melody lines written for Violin will work too since as bratsche said violin is also GDAE.

    Also, there are PDF files of ALL the chords for CGDA tuning, which is used for viola, mandola, some cello, and ALSO tenor guitar, which are all tuned to CGDA.

    I will try to find the links in my bookmarks and share them here....

    After 3+ years playing tenors, I picked up a Baritone about you 6 months ago. It is my main player. I love that sound. I am seriously thinking about picking up an 8 string cedar topped Kala Baritone next weekend. Might pick up a Soprano as well for when I want that bark.

    8 strings are tempting, since baritone was for me an octave mandolin substitute initially, and I wish there were more affordable baritone options. But so is low CGDA (cello) tuning! For right now, I'll just be satisfied with what I have. ;-)

    A bunch of stringed instruments tuned in fifths. And a bunch of cats!

    Very much being an enabler, that sounds like a good plan to me.

    Booli, I am not sure who is the best (or worst) enabler you or Dave. I do value the weath of experience here on UU.

    Yes, I think that those of us most deeply afflicted with UAS, have fallen under the influence of some kind of mind control or brain fever that motivates us to recruit others to the cause and there is some dopamine or oxytocin release that comes with it somehow...it's like a 'smart' viral form of meningitis

I can see what Baritones are available at the festival or I may have to breakdown and order one on faith. I could drive to Atlanta in November and look at them at Uke Republic when the next order arrives.

    The advantage of buying one in person is that I can pretty much tell my wife that. “Oh, I just picked that up with some loose change in my pocket.” If I order one there is a credit card statement that will get much scrutney.
