are their any good tutorials for baritone uke for playing jazzy and relaxing style instrumental pieces? theres that whole lyle ritz style of playing i wish i was able to play, and i love how that style sounds on the baritone uke. I don't read or write music so watching 'how to' videos is the best way for me to learn this kind of thing. if anyone has some videos just paste em in here looking for more instrumental jazzy sounding songs to learn. I found a lot of blues on youtube not a big fan of the blues or learning for that matter (at least on a uke).

I don't know if they're instrumental, but Humlbe Baritonics just listed this tutorial playlist:

thanks for the info, however im looking for something more kimo hussey and lyle ritz style but transposed for baritone uke. I really want to learn that style, the stuff i see most is more blues and rock style songs which i can already do and have no real interest in learning anymore of it.

Do you read tab? A couple of Jumpin' Jim's Lyle Ritz books say they are arranged for both GCEA- and DGBE-tuned ukes.

If you want to stick with video tutorials, pretty much anything for low G tuning would apply equally to baritone, you just won't be playing in the same key.

FWIW, it is widely reported that Lyle Ritz used a high d string for his dGBE ukes.

correct i know he used reentrant tuning.
I don't mean him specifically but i want to learn to play the baritone the way kimo hussey plays his. Just trying to see if i can get tips to learn to play like that. And no i really don't do well with tabs, im mostly a visual and auditory learner aka a video would be much easier for me to learn with.

You might want to check out Glen Rose. Last I saw, he had his baritone tuned to C6, but the style should be usable for a G6 uke

Kimo's latest videos are the best I've seen so far in showing the components of how his technique works:

I love his playing style but I don't find him to be very
good at teaching . humble baritonics
has videos from jazzy uke which are really
good lessons and now I've learned to play some really cool
jazzy stuff that translates well to both Bari and soprano
