Thanks for that.

I believe the 10th and 9th F and G are re-entrant, notes like those on the 6th string.

Okay, there is a way of notating this using letter and number, such as G2 D1, etc. Or lower case for reentrant notes. The former is not always memorable, and most people don't know what the numbers refer to. So I would think perhaps this is an easy method: EBGDAE DBgf# Thoughts?

Macaluso's "Clair De Lune" tuning. First six are standatd E-A-D-G-B-E
7th....D
8th....B
9th....G
10th...F#

This is what he had noted on the arrangement. Vince also did a fantastic arrangement of the Beatle's "Yeaterday" for standard guitar with a D-G-D-G-B-E tuning written with two flats

What a strange posture she has. I had to shut my eyes as I found the camera work distracting. Very nice playing, though.
I wonder if she was a cello player...
