    Default Nud: Larrivee barritone

    Good uke always come knocking when I am not looking.

    UU member Doc J found me this beauty. Downupdave who is
    my biggest enabler , immediately jumped on my case so I don't miss out again.

    This is a NEW old inventory built in 2016. Never been out of the shop. It still has the strong new wood smell. Jean Larrivee has been a long time guitar builder in Canada. He became American , now living in Calif so Larrivee is now made in U.S.A.

    Most baritone I played sound muddy. This one has a crisp bright sound to it because of the spruce top.

    I changed out the original strings to Martin but found it too thin for my playing style. Camsuke put a pack of Mya Moe on a slow boat from Australia. I will do another video once I have the new strings. So you see, this is a team effort !

    I put together a short video that is self explanatory to spare you the trouble of reading long text. Please welcome my new born - The Zebra

    MUSIC : arranged by Camsuke. If you like the tab, he may share it with you.

    Very nice, congratulations
    Making music is a gift in itself, and when you can share it ....it is your gift to others

    That has a very nice guitar type of tone, I liked it within the first 30 seconds I played it. I am glad I could help you spend your money
