Hey guys, I'm absolutely new here, found it through vids on youtube I'm a total newb with the ukulele, and found myself getting a baritone uke, finding its sound more appealing to me then the smaller soprano and concert. However, little did I know, finding chords and tabs for my baritone is pretty hard to find on the internet, let alone tutorials. It's been years since I picked up any musical instrument, used to play the Cello and Piano back in orchestra in middle school, but haven't gone back since.
I know the baritone is tuned differently then the other smaller ukes, and it's frustrating trying to find any vids on youtube on how to play the baritone. I had a couple questions, hope you guys can help out:
1) I read around and learned that I can't tune the baritone the way a concert is, because of the stress it will cause. In that case, if I tune it the proper way DGBE, can I still take the chords from a song a concert plays exactly? For example, the song Guardian angel is played F C Dm A# on a concert, can I play those exact same chords on the baritone or do I have to "convert" it?
2) Are there other sites out there or really helpful tutorials on like a walkthrough for the notes? Like what fingers go where for chords, the notes, etc.
and 3) Knowing that it's basically a mini guitar without the 2 lowest strings, how would I take guitar chords that require notes from those 2 strings and play it on the baritone?
I know I should have bought a how to book, and I do plan on doing so in the next few days. I just happened to receive my baritone yesterday and I'm not sure if you could tell but I'm getting excited about playing
Well I'd appreciate it if I could get some help, and I'm loving the site, especially those vid lessons for the songs.. grrr if only he did them for the baritone also haha
