Here I'd like to talk about a few other
tunings that we can use to get some
So right now, I'm just in the key of G.
[SOUND] So I'm gonna show you how to real
quickly get to a neat
tuning that I can use, to get some swing
So what I'm gonna do is change from a G
tuning [SOUND] to a D6 tuning,
and all we have to do to get a D6 is tune
this G string,
[SOUND] the third string down one half
So I'm gonna go ahead and turn this down.
One-half step to an F sharp,
and all of a sudden, I've got a nice D6.
So, [SOUND] I've got my D strings.
[SOUND] Now with this F sharp, I've got
the third of D,
[SOUND] and then a B which is the sixth,
So with this tuning,
you can get sort of
a lot of cool swing
Generally when I use an alternate tuning
that's like this that I don't
use all that often, I'll have something
specific worked out for it.
Sometimes when you change to a different
tuning it's hard to just improvise,
although some people may be able to do it.
When I go to this tuning, it's not one I
use all that often, so
when I do, I have something worked out
that I know will work.
So we've gone over a couple of interesting
So, what I like to do is,
ask you if you'd like to send me a video
using one or several of these tunings,
and I'd like to see what you came up with
using these tunings.
So, there may be some other videos related
to this, you can check those out for
some more information, maybe your question
If not, feel free to send me a video,
happy to look at it and
give you some feedback.
