I am pretty sure he was an high baritone in most of his career, in fact on first album he even sound like low tenor, also mby on second. But soon after he is def high baritone until i think at least in the eightees when he got darker voice on oh mercy

There were G#4s on 'All Along the Watchtower" and at least one more song on "John Wesley Harding".

The man's got an abundance of upper 4th octave notes. It's when you go past G4 that they become rarer. Hence why the A4's in Dirge should be included.

I'm aware of how weird the video title is for this but a solid high run from what I believe to be F4 to A4 at 3:07

The song is Goin' to Acapulco

Bob Dylan a baritone?

Post  dlaport on Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:46 pm

Are you sure he's a baritone he sounds at least like a high baritone or a tenor.
