Guys and gals smile.gif I have the pleasure and honor of sharing this great video that our own Capn't Cael or Caelumamittendum as some of you may know him, or Ben biggrin.gif has done so well. He presents the Cminadd9 tuning which I find particularly interesting! Check it out:



What tunings have YOU experimented with, so far?

Sounds awesome and very inspiring, Ben. The progression that start at 0:58 you should use in a song because it's sound really cool smile.gif
You know how I see this in my mind?
Put an effect sound from a storm or a blizzard and play that progression but without any drums. After same bars when drums and bass start I will definitely prepare a part with a little amount of distors (agressive sound but not muddy).
This part is so inspiring that melodic idea it will come by itself wink.gif

Hey Cosmin,

Thanks for sharing my video smile.gif I hope others can get something out of it as well!

And thank you, Monica! I have something on mind for a song using this tuning, but I have not yet come around to recording it.

Fantastic video Cael! I love the progressions and sounds that you can get from this tuning! It sounds completely fresh for me. Both the clean progressions and the distorted riff are very interesting. Thanks for this video. smile.gif

I made a mini-lesson about Open G tuning here:

It is very fresh indeed! The open G tuning is more bluesy/rock'n roley - out of what i know it can also be used for slide playing, right?

I experimented a bit with the one step lower version of the DADGAD, namely, the CGCFGC

Nice lesson! It sounds very cool. What bands or popular songs use that tuning?

DADGAD or any of it's intervallic cousins is fairly common. A lot of players will use it on a song or three.

Stones (also a lot of open G), Zeppelin, Simon and Garfunkle, Sevendust (though down tuned) Joni Mitchell, Ani DiFranco, Davey Graham, Bert Jansch, Andy McKee, Pierre Bensusan, Richard Thompson, Trey Anastasio ...

DADGAD is a very interesting tuning which was inspired by a style of music that most probably neither of us would expect smile.gif (except Ken - I think he knows biggrin.gif) -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DADGAD
