I guess I'm too stuck on dear old EBGDAE
Hi Aucaman, I noticed that your reading your strings from high to low, I go the other way,
my standard tuning would read EADGBE, I hope your not tuning open D upside down,
But Yes, this is the tuning he uses most of the time, sometimes open G, (DGDGBD) two very common tunings used by folk guitarists. It seems standard tuning is a bit difficult for his arthritic fingers. It’s fun noodling around with these tunings maybe get the old bottle neck out and play some blues.
