One word.
Thank you Dave for the lesson and to Dave and Matt for the encouragement.
No looking back now.
Thank you, Kenny, for making my evening! :wink: Glad that you took the plunge!

Again, thanks to all for the encouragment of using alt tunings.

So tonight at work, I've been practicing the song and I love it, still got a ways to go to get the right strumming, but having a great time.

Which lead me to the question of soloing. I am guessing (because it doesn't sound right, when I play), that I can throw out the thought of using any pentatonic scales, with alt tuning.

So I tried looking for something on the internet and I found this:

It might prove useful for the more advanced guitarist (or adventursome), but it's way over my head. But still I downloaded it for future reference.

By the way, when I googled "open c# tuning scales", number four on the list is an article by David Hodge from 1999 on this site. :)

Nice Lesson David thanks. I've still got to tweak the tuning a bit to get it spot on. I really like Coldplay too, looking forward to Don't Panic lesson, meanwhile hope everyone's got 'someone to lean on' (feeble attempt at pun) :)
