5 Reasons Why You Need a Baritone Guitar

so there’s been more than one time in my
life where I’ve almost bought a baritone
guitar I would go into a store and see
one I pick it up and and play it and
think man these are so cool I need to
have one but every single time I would
talk myself out of it well I’d you don’t
have the money right now or do I really
need one how often would I use it and
don’t what I gig with it and I would set
it back on the rack and leave well last
week I finally won that battle and I
bought this sixth string baritone from
danelectro and it was one of those
things where I walked into the shop saw
it on the wall played it for maybe 2
minutes and then just said all right I’m
taking it home and made the decision I
guess you could call that an impulse buy
but since I’ve gotten this thing home
I’ve not been able to put it down and
now I can’t believe I didn’t buy one of
these sooner so because of that today
we’re gonna talk about five reasons why
you need a baritone guitar now before we
get started be sure to click that
subscribe button down below and hit the
bell icon so you can be notified
whenever I’m posting new videos and
going live here on the channel without
further ado let’s hear what this thing
sounds like
so before we get started I should
mention that all of the tones you’re
hearing today are coming from the line 6
HX stop I’m using some of my own presets
that I created and if you’d like to
check those out for yourself the link is
in the description so the first reason
you should own a six string baritone is
these things are incredibly versatile in
fact this might be one of the most
versatile guitars you have in your whole
collection and the reason is because
it’s it’s harmonically between a guitar
and a bass what’s cool is if you’re
playing chord voicings up high you’re in
a normal six string guitar register so
with one guitar you can play normal
guitar chords and parts but if you go
low you can actually play some bass
lines as well on this Danelectro if
you’ve rolled a tone off and play this
low B string either with your thumb or
with the pick you can actually get away
with this thing sounding like a bass so
if you are needing a bass and you don’t
have one and you’re not sure that you
really want to spend the money on
something like a P bass or jazz bass or
something you could check out a
six-string baritone because this low
register here will get you into that
bass guitar territory now for me one of
the main reasons why I picked up this
baritone is because of the next reason
on our list and that is these are great
tools to have around the studio because
of the unique tone and where they sit on
the frequency spectrum you can do things
like double bass lines with the baritone
you can double guitar lines with the
baritone both of which are gonna add a
lot of weight and impact to your phrase
or your melody they’re great for when
you need to get that traditional
spaghetti-western sound you know that
real twangy drenched in spring reverb
slap back delay kind of sound and if you
follow mark Lettieri on instagram you
probably know these are great for funk
guitar as well if you’re as good of a
player as Mark Lettieri which I’m not
another reason why you should pick up a
baritone guitar is these are great with
effects especially with ambient reverbs
and delays it really adds a unique take
on ambient style guitar tones because
you have the low register the super
scale length the thick strings these
things are incredible
with ambient guitar tones or if you’re
not into super washy reverbs and delays
these things take fuzz pedals and
overdrive pedals incredible well which
again makes them really great to use in
a studio set
now one of the main reasons I made an
impulse buy with this guitar
last week was because these things are
inspiration machines if you are stuck in
a rut and you’re playing normally I
don’t advocate buying new gear to break
out of you’re playing a rut but what’s
cool about a baritone is the same licks
and parts and chords that you’re used to
playing on a six-string sound so much
different on a baritone so much so that
you’ll find that when you pick one up to
play it it immediately takes you to a
different creative space you start
playing different chords and different
melody ideas and different licks because
of the way this thing sounds these are
great for songwriters as well because of
the lower register the different types
of chord voicings and tones you can get
out of it
they’re just inspirational to play and
finally the last reason you should pick
up a baritone guitar you already know
how to play it because it’s tuned like
an electric guitar the same chord shapes
the same scale shapes that you’ve
already learned on your electric apply
here now it is a little bit different
than a normal guitar and that if you
play like an open G shape here that’s
not actually a G chord that’s a D major
chord because our low string here is
tuned to B but all these same chord
shapes that you know all the same scales
all apply to the baritone guitar now you
will have to do some transposing in your
head if you’re trying to play along with
any songs or in your band but the way I
like to think about it is just like
playing with a capo on so you’re still
using the same chord shapes they’re just
different chords and different notes
it’s really not difficult to wrap your
head around at all
so there you go those are five reasons
why I think you should pick up a
baritone guitar for yourself I love this
thing man I’ve can’t put it down if you
