My guitar tunings -

I've had many ask about what tuning I use when I open tune my guitar to play bottleneck slide. The tuning used on all of the open tuned guitars on this recording is an open E form, or a modified version of the same. By modified I mean that though the key may change from either tuning the guitar to a higher pitch or down to a lower pitch, I'm still using the same open E form.

If that sounds a little confusing, think of it like this. If you've tuned your guitar to open E (low-EBEG#BE-high) but desire to play in an open G, you could simply add a capo on the third fret. This then is essentially like creating a barred G major chord and looks like this: (low-GDGBDG-high). From open G you could move this tuning up to Ab by placing a capo on the fourth fret etc.

I don't use a capo when I'm in open tunings and playing bottleneck slide. Instead, I prefer to tune all of my strings up or down to the pitch desired. So, that means that when I play a song in open G my strings are tuned like this (low-GDGBDG-high), if in open D (low-DADF#AD-high), in open E (low-EBEG#BE-high) or open C# minor (low-C#AbC#EAbC#-high) etc.

If this explanation is as clear as mud, try searching for open guitar tunings online. There are many helpful sites.

Happy pickin'!


My recently released song, "Wall Street Bail Out Blues", received worldwide attention via an article written by Robert Tomsho that made the cover of The Wall Street Journal February 6th of 2009, "No Dough In The Do-Re-Mi". I must be doing something right!
