If you sing inside your vocal range, you’ll probably realize you’re better than you thought!
Case in point: Kohl Kitzmiller (IC), Mike McGee (Main Street), Ryan Wisniewski (ex-NF4 😢), Emanuel (can't find his last name but from Ringmasters) and then so many more, I just keep finding myself being drawn to the bari of every quartet
I mean, I am admittedly partial to people who sing the baritone part because it's an underappreciated-yet-difficult vocal feat in and of itself, but I can't be the only one who thinks they're just all very attractive.
I'm gonna be tuning down to B and I've stumbled upon the idea of getting a baritone guitar.
I know nothing about it, I just find it somehow sexy.
I play death metal, so lot of distortion, palm mutes, tremolo picking and such.
"What would I get" with the baritone?
I know that fret buzz should be less of a problem (which is kind of a big positive) and there would be some getting used to (larger spaces between frets), but for this kind of music,... any advantages or notable differences?
Thank you very much
Does anybody have some good baritone song suggestions that are somewhat recent? I’m singing something for my acapella group and I wanted something more popular, but any song suggestions will do.

I've been wanting to play around with a baritone guitar for a while, I love the way they sound, and a lot of people told me that it's great for when you feel stuck writing. They're right, it brings a sound that's similar enough to fit in, but different enough to make you play something you don't normally play. It adds a flavor to a song that it might have been missing and you don't know it! I know it's used a lot in country, and it definitely has a country-ness to it, so I'm excited to see what kind of sounds I can add to my music!
(TL/DR at the end)
Okay, so a few things here..
How do you clean your instrument...? I don't want to ruin it, and I have no experience in cleaning my euph at all, but Theodore (yes, Theodore...) is filthy.
Now, this one's not related to marching band, but more jazz band. I'm fucking awful at improvisation... How do I improve? I don't have much to practice with, and if my first year/last year in jazz band showed me anything, imma be fucked.
TL/DR: How do I get through camp without my arms falling off? How do I give my instrument a bath? Anyone have any good improvisation tips?
Anyone experienced with using clients on SMP servers knows that paper has a built in any x-ray, but still keeps ores in the positions as defined by the seed.
Seed crackers are available in a lot of different cheats, so is it theoretically possible to make an xray function based off of the seed that you got from a seed cracker?
If not visually, could something be done with baritone to where you could give it the seed and it would queue up to mine all of the nearby ores by coordinate?
Just was thinking about this, curious of the technical side of things.
Hey guys this might be a ridiculously obvious question but just was thinking about this and realized I don't know....
What do bass players do to accompany a low B-string on a baritone or 7 string guitar?
As far as I understand the 'added' string on 5-string basses is a higher octave B string.
Hopefully this makes sense the way I've worded it. Thanks.
As far I hear, he has mostly sounded like a tenor. However, Insomniac and some parts in Nimrod were definitely baritone.
At the same time he didn't really have the range you'd expect from a tenor until much later in his career, probably not till RevRad or FOAMF. (Ready Aim Fire is ridiculously high)
(Disclaimer: I don't really understand these things too well.)
Hey guys, I'm a baritone I just started singing in 2016, and through the years, my range had come to D#2-C5-A5 but its all strained and pulled from my neck and underneath my jaw, I noticed that I'm not using correct technique because I'm pushing my chest voice up without mixing. How do I mix? I have watched so many tutorials and it's not working for me, and I'm too poor to afford a vocal coach. Thank you.
Hey, I’m starting an MT degree in September and I’m looking for new baritenor songs I’ve never heard before!
Currently I’m lacking in legit, so if you have an recommendations for that style specifically that’s be amazing. (But honestly any under-rated songs would be much appreciated)
Voice type: think if Jonathon Groff and Norbert Leo Butz had a love child.
My rep so far: • Attachment - 36 Questions • Goodbye - I Love You Because • If I Cant Love Her - Beauty & The Beast • If I Didn’t Believe In You - The Last Five Years • If Ever I Would Leave You - Camelot
Maybe?: • Stranger - Big Fish
I'm trying to complete a project on an SMP, and I need Baritone to complete it. Baritone doesn't have everything I need though, and I was wondering If I could program it in. Is this possible?
Been wanting a bari uke for a while, finally got a GREAT deal on this Giannini. The guy re-strung it for me but i noticed it has 2 metal strings and 2 nylon. Is that normal?
We recently added a new Mitchell baritone to the flock (about 10 days ago), but I think the store may have strung it with two low steel strings instead of nylon. They're wrapped, obviously, but that's not the issue. We played it about a month or two before we bought it and again the day of. The first time it was strung all nylon high G, and in the traditional baritone config the second. It hasn't been played much since we first got it because it is a birthday gift and it wasn't actually the birthday yet
Today I noticed a hairline crack from the tail to the bridge, along the grain and in line with the lower two strings. The two higher strings haven't had to stretch in, but the wrapped ones have, like only they were replaced, and today I was thinking they felt like they were at a higher tension than the top two.
Is there a way to tell without taking them off or cutting them? I've played for years, but I've always just gotten the right thing for whichever instrument, so I'm not actually sure how to check? If it's their fault the instrument is damaged, I want to follow up as soon as I can.
i'm completely untrained and can't really sing very well but i do enjoy it and i miss being in choir back in my schooldays. but i don't think i'd be able to join a choir for a number of reasons. i completely pass as a woman in terms of looks & voice BUT my range is completely male (A2-C5) except with a female timbre. i never had to do any kind of voice training i just sound naturally like a woman, even back before i transitioned.
anyway, what i want to know is...in a choir what would i be able to do? i can barely sing C5. i can sing a bit higher if i strain but i doubt i'd be able to hit those notes musically and in a song. my natural break is around E4...would i be able to sing alto or would i be elaine stritched and stuck with the baritones?
So I've been wondering what kind of voice do I have. I'm almost certain I am not a bass as I generally have hard time singing in low 3rd octave but I'm probably not a tenor too, as my voice is quite thick. Could you name any singers with similar voice?
I’m a second year music major at a university in Texas, and I’m looking for one more piece to round out my rep for this semester. I’m looking for an English love song, either art song or aria. Preferably no higher than an Eb4, lower range isn’t an issue.
I like singing but I always sing as high as F#5. I sing in a fake falsetto girly voice. I’m naturally a baritone. I’m pretty sure I have nodules. I’ve been singing Mariah’s songs for years and think I have damage because now singing is getting harder and harder. Wondering what are you guys thoughts on this?
Hey guys! So I just received my Chapman ML1 Pro Modern Baritone yesterday and I'm super happy with it. Craftsmanship is excellent and it plays like a dream, except for one thing. The lowest string is CRAZY unstable.
I have the guitar set up in drop A (A E A D F# B), and the low A is so hard to keep in tune. It'll basically go either flat or sharp (usually sharp) after like 10-15 seconds of chugging/riffing. Anyone know why this would be? Just a bad string? Nut issue? All of the other strings are stable as can be. I haven't tried swapping the strings out yet, will try putting a new set on asap. Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue before!
the drumline has
I am currently trying to build a wither skele farm on a survival server my friends and I play on, but I am extremely overwhelmed with having to spawn proof a 256x256 area. I tried just automining the whole thing with baritone but I realized even then it would take weeks. Is there an easy method using baritone to slab the area potentially?
Anyone else experience the weird days? Where you wakeup and it feels like you have absolutely no higher voice?
Some days I wakeup and its like I never built my mix or have my floaty flageolet or anything, other days I wakeup with all parts of my voice active. I need the latter to happen more!
Today has literally been that weird. Im cracking around G4😂 and having to use a lighter mix to navigate cause it feels like Im gonna need sooooo much energy to get into my full mix😭
Make it stopppp😿
So, could a tenor sound like a baritone by lowering his larynx etc.? I can sing like a baritone sometimes, but my voice sounds light when I sing with a band (when I feel I have a neutral larynx position, cause I have to project my voice a lot more). I know for instance Paul McCartney could sing some low notes and he's clearly a tenor. Also, after a bath I sing a lot higher and my voice feels less like I have a cold, so maybe it's a sinus thing? I don't know.
I'm an intermediate player I'd say. But man. I have big, big hands. Like skinny fingers, but just big hands. I know short scales exist, but I'm just looking for something with a longer scale, if it even exists. Plus a wider nut with more space between the strings.
Overall, Jazzmasters tend to feel best. The Squier Vintage Modified felt great when I had one. But the thing is, it's not much bigger at all. Maybe it had a thicker neck so I had more of my hands behind the fret board? No clue.
My hands hold me back, I think. Make my playing sloppier than I'd like. A longer scale or something would be great, without it being a baritone. If it even exists. I know the 3/4 scales exist or course
If anyone has some good tips, I'm all ears. Especially some Fender style guitars. Thanks for any input on this!
If yes, how can he do that?
I went online to see if I could find an answer, but all the articles I found only mentioned cleaning the mouthpiece of the instrument. I considered just using a disinfectant wipe to clean the outside of the instrument, but I’m afraid of damaging my horn. Do I only clean my mouthpiece, or is there a way to fully disinfect my horn?
I have a tenor (low-g) and a baritone (dgbe). The baritone is obviously a deeper sounding instrument, but I like the scaling of the tenor better (I find it easier to play chords on the tenor).
While switching back & forth between the two I have, I did notice something else: The baritone vibrates a LOT more. I feel the vibrations on my chest, not just hear them.
This got me to wondering - is it the larger baritone body I'm feeling or the deeper chords - some combo? Is it the type of wood (tenor is solid maple, while the baritone is cedar top w/acacia side & back). The strings (Worth Brown on the tenor, Living Water on the baritone)?
I might go test out a Ohana BKT-70G or 250G (a Baritone base with a tenor neck). I've asked if anyone owns one in another thread, but no replies.
Can anyone with more experience then me shed some light on this? Is it all going to come down to personal preference? Kind of wishing I could borrow the Ohana for a couple weeks w/low g string - test everything out - THEN somehow go back in time & just get the "right" instrument with the "right" strings for me :)
I play sax for fun when I’m bored, and I currently own an Alto (Late 40’s Buescher Aristocrat) and a Tenor (Yamaha YTS-62), but I am interested in buying a baritone now. I don’t know which one I should get, where to get one, or even how much I should budget though. I don’t know anyone that owns one either, so I’m hoping y’all can help me out. I obviously do not have a ton of money to spend on a baritone, but I know they are significantly more expensive than my other instruments. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I normally play trombone, but am starting baritone in marching band. I just got my horn, but the valves are sticky. Can I use my slide oil on them?
I did one of these posts for basses/bass-baritones now I'm going to do baritones. I'll do another post for baritenors and tenors in the future.

I'll admit most of these are very contemporary, so if any of you have any more suggestions for out baritones friends feel free to share!
I know that it's common to someone think they are baritone, but in reality they are some kind of tenor.
It doesn't make sense to me, don't you hear that his voice is deep or light when he talks? For example if i now walked to opera teacher he would clasify me as a baritone and i wouldn't even have to sing. I just have deep ass voice.
I know that some baritones like Mike Shinoda sound tenor-ish when he talks, but for the most part you can hear that he is baritone just by his talking, right?
Btw, sorry for my bad english, thanks!
Hey i brought Future and wanted to use Baritone and have also seen people use both. Do you know how?
For my fellow baritones disappointed with the lack of rep, here are some roles that we often overlook! A lot of these may be a bit out there, but I can assure you can and have been sung by baritones. I tried to list roles that don’t go above a baritone high A (with the exception of Jesus). Most of these require a strong G, with the exception of the bottom three. If anyone has any questions I’d be happy to explain my reasoning. Or let me know if there are others I should add!
Jesus - Jesus Christ Superstar (rock high baritone with mix)
Pippin (pop light high baritone in original version)
Burrs - Lippa Wild Party (rock/pop high baritone)
Anatoly- Chess (legit/pop high baritone)
Marius - Les Mis (legit light/high baritone)
Anthony - Sweeney Todd (legit light baritone)
Leo Frank - Parade (pop/legit light baritone)
Tommy - Brigadoon (legit light baritone)
It is DGBE, and I dont know what brand/type to buy as the e string is fraying. I think theyre either nylon or the nylgut/nyltech. I dont know whether they are d'addario or Aquila, are there any differences? Here is a picture of the strings, if that helps. I would rather get the same strings as I have now, however all suggestions are helpfull
