hi, im a noob, if a guitar is tuned in 4ths and 1 3rd, then why in baritone and 8 string tunings is an F# used?...why not just the natural F note?

You gots something against the F#?! Bit too out there for ya is it?!

Nah I'm just kidding man lol
Well in a baritone guitar, the second string would be an F#, cause since baritone guitars are tuned a fifth down, an F# is the fifth of the B.
Quite simple really.

F# is a 4th below B, which is a 4th below E, which is why it's used on 8 string guitars.

That would be the case if it was tuned a 4th down. While it is a 5th ABOVE B, it is a 4th below it.
