After reading this article ... -to-432hz/ I tuned my ols Sanchez guitar to 432Hz and-lo and behold-did a fairly good first run through the Cantabile without the usual nervous breakdowns.Consistant with the patterns of the universe. :wink:
On my terz guitar this scheme didn't work out so well, the strings were a bit slack, so I tunded backto 440Hz
Same with my Guitalele

The 432 version sounds very relaxed and well, thank you!

I very much liked the first version with the lower tuning. You seem to have played it more relaxed and gentler.

I may be mistaken, but were the second and third videos identical? I couldn't tell a difference between them?
