Justifying the Taylor Baritone 8 string - the video! By Steve

When I first heard the Taylor 8-string Baritone guitar around a year and a half ago, what immediately attracted me to it was the 'otherworldliness' of the sound it made, with its deep rumbling bass notes and shimmering, haunting double strings. The tone seemed to be almost primeval, hinting at hidden depths and half-forgotten memories, and I instantly fell in love with it.

We now use it on several tunes, including a solo piece called 'Justify', which is in two parts, a slow ethereal section followed by a faster reel. We thought it would be fun to make a short video to accompany the first part, so the start of May saw us filming in the depths of Shropshire, trying to produce images to match the music (and making ourselves dizzy in the process!) You can view the results below:
