"Dan Crary used to use a custom baritone Taylor often. Gives you some more tonal options. If I remember correctly he was tuned D to D, and would capo at 2 for standard tuning."

Baritone Guitar for Flatpickin/Bluegrass

Martin recently began making a Baritone Guitar tuned B to B.  Looks interesting.  Has anyone had a good experience using a baritone for flatpicking or bluegrass?

Hey, Andrew,

Thanks. I don't know if I'm as advanced as you might think. I've been playing a long time, and I have messed with some fiddle tunes here and there. But mostly I've been a strum-and-sing guy. I've only just recently started focusing any real effort on flatpicking.

I'll give you a ring after the holidays when my schedule gets back to something hopefully resembling "normal."

Hi again, Andrew,

I am indeed interested in following up on getting together to pick. I'll send an email to the address you listed in the discussion thread.

Music Software

Can anyone suggest a good audio or music slow downer? I bumped into this software called Song Surgeon but I still want to compare other software maybe there is a better one out there or this could be a good one already.See More

Performance Setup

Hey fellow pickers.  Recently I have started playing solo gigs around San Diego where I live.  As it continues to expand, I find the need to expand my setup more to control my playing volume between rhythm and picking.  Watching the Pros, i have noticed that a lot of them use a volume switch of some type, either via a volume pedal or a stomp switch, to increase and decrease volume from the setup depending on the playing mode. Does anyone have any feedback they can share on these types of…See More
