Baritone Guitar Chords

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I just purchased an Ibanez MMM1 mike mushok baritone guitar. It is tuned B-B (B E A D F# E).

 

Does anyone know of a chord chart for this tuning? If so it would be extremely helpful.

 

Thanks,

 

Eamonn Connor

Chord shapes would be the same, it's just a lower tuning.

 

If you have to know the chord name then that's beyond my expertise.

The chord shapes are played the same but they are a fourth lower on the baritone. So if you play the chord shape that is an "E" on a standard guitar it would be a "B" on the baritone. You should memorize the circle of fifths and transposing will come easy since a fourth below is the same as a fifth above.

 

Just memorize this:

a fifth above A is E

a fifth above B is F#

and so on

(figure out the rest yourself)

E is B

 

A is E

 

D is A

 

Basically you'll have to transpose everything.

 

Or give up and just capo at the 5th fret.

 

That would fix things. :thu:
