Title: Baritone Guitars
Post by: willsie01 on March 11, 2018, 12:25:46 am
I've been learning Neil Youngs Unknown Legend from Justins lesson and I love the low basey lines that are played in the intro and interlude but its sung by Neil in the key of G. I love to sing along with my playing when I can but this key is beyond me with this song. My usual solution is to use the Capo to find a position where my voice fits but unfortunately with this song I end up on the 7th fret playing the song with the G shaped chord and the intro lines just doesn't work there. To solve this I've been thinking of trying a baritone guitar to see if it fits my voice better with it's different tuning. Could this work?

Have a go at transposing it into a key that you are more comfortable singing. The main part appears to be a I-IV progression. I'm not completely sure, but I think a G chord at the 7th fret is a D major.

Capo on 7th fret or G shape chord with root at 7th fret?
A baritone icould give you similar results with a lot of low end.
Mostly tuned from B to B an open E shape chord would be, in actuality, a B chord.
