That tuning would be a humongous pain to get strings for.
Me and my band have been experimenting with B F# B g b e on our sixers. It's pretty epic, you can get some interesting chords out of that.
that a killer tuning for as is c#
which drop B is a variation off C#
Just c# with a low b
On topic, I've been wanting to try all diminished fifths
A Eb A Eb A Eb
open B on my ibanez,
drop A on my 7 string
Open E on my ibanez acoustic
i prefer open tunings for some reason...
Do you do open B Devin Townsend style? (BF#BF#BD#)
Fans of Mortal Kombat (or the Sumerian band) may appreciate ABACABB.
I wonder what it would be like to play in those tunings.
In mine, I would expect the answer is "painful."
Assuming it would even be possible to make anything good with them
My six is in E-C#-F#-c#-E-e.
The lowest E is the same as the 4th string of a standard tuned bass, tune the C# to the 9th fret of the E, tune the F# to the 7th fret of the C#, tune the c# to the 5th fret of the F#, tune the second E to the 3rd fret of the c#, and tune the final e to the 12th fret of the second E.
Simple, and fun as hell to play in.
That's pretty cool. Any recordings in that tuning?
Not yet, and I'd make you some but that guitar is currently 2 hours away. :/
No problem, I can wait.
I'll be living where it is in about 20 days. I don't think I'll be out there until then. As soon as I am, I'll write some stuff with it and get it recorded.
Man I wish I was old enough to get a real job so I could buy some guitars and try out all these ideas I have floating around in my head. :/
Hee hee, the guitar in that tuning is a six string bronze BC Rich Mockingbird
I think I have... *counts* 7 guitars right now. I paid a total of around... *adds* $600 counting the ones I received as gifts/traded for some other gear not of consequence.
My advice: have more birthdays or friends who are into the bartering system.
But I want my fancy guitars D:<
Before I sold my dean 7 to this one guy, I tuned it to F-A-G-B-A-G-D
In other news, I love open tunings. B-F#-B-F#-B-D# (my band uses it)
I've also taken that half a step and a full step lower.
Or on 7's I've also tried A-D-A-D-G-A-D. It's the fancy dadgad with a low A. I think it sounds killer.
