As promised The Old Dairy is open by appointment between Christmas and the New Year (Tues 27th – Thurs 29th).
Given the timing of the appointments we’ve decided to keep The Old Dairy open in between so why not take the opportunity to pop in and see us?
Although it’s far from a trivial instrument, our #TuesdayTrivia is about Baritone guitars.
They were first used in classical music as, with a larger body, stronger bracing, and longer scale length it reaches the depths other guitars cannot reach.
Unlike regular guitars, the baritone can be tuned in a variety of ways; a perfect fifth (A D G C E A), an augmented fourth (Bb Eb Ab Db F Bb), a perfect fourth (B E A D F♯ B), or a major third lower (C F B♭ E♭ G C).
Electric versions became popular in the 60s but they remain a niche instrument and hence we now have an English-made one available for you to try. What’s more, just to make it even more niche, we’ve a fan fretted one! You can check it out here.
