    Hmm... I've run into the CAGED threory of chord construction before, but, well... I've always considered it a product of standard tuning, not standard tuning a product of it.

    I mean, however you tune the guitar, you're still going to essentially have five basic "voicings" that you can base the remainder of your chords on, right?

    I think CAGED just comes from tertiary (triadic) harmony applied to a 6-stringed (coursed ;)) instrument, and not vice versa.

    Just a gut feeling though, I could be wrong. ;)

    I agree with you. If we had a different tuning standard, it could be, like DBAFE or the BGFDC system or the whatever the hell the basic chord shapes come out from on that. I mean, you dont hear people who play piano and violin or any other classical instrument talking about the thing.

    HB- thanks, bro, I was afraid I was going to have to invent a tuning before people would start agreeing. A little tricky, with no guitar in hand. ;)
