    That's just so nice... I love how baritones sound when they're played like that. Thanks for posting!

    Nice playing...

    The JJ Baritone is one of my favorite guitars ever...I have one of the old ones with the rosewood bridge. People generally go for the deep moody twang on it but I love it for chord melody also...OK, and sometimes the chord melody gets a little deep moody twang in the process, but hey - can't we all just get along?

    thanks gentlemen for the kind comments and taking time to listen! The baritone was a gift to me from a guy that i play with in a country band and he wanted to hear the twang and got it....worked for me. However i've found i like it for other things as well as you guys noted. I think we all should be able to get along! Great to hear about your bari-guitar - i'm sure it is very cool.

    peace,

    very cool......never seen one before and i love the bigsby!! Bet it sounds good through that amp! Do you ever use any effects with it and how do you tune yours?

    Just amp reverb and tremolo. I also use a Fulltone TTE for delay. The guitar came tuned C to C and I used that for a while. Now I tune mine B to B. That seems to work best for me.

    I had my sights on a baritone just like the one used in the video. Alas, Brian Eno bought it instead. I loved playing that instrument.

    Dale,

    Nice work as always.
    I use a bit of compression when finger picking on electric and find it a great tool with my baritone. Have you ever tried one ?
