sounds good ;p
Neat. I never new any of this. Does this count as "theory"?
kinda sorta. If anyone wants me to post some basic theory on chord contruction or scale construction or anything, just say ;p
Consider it said.
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.
