DAGDGC Tuning?

Y'all come on in and sit a spell. All things Slide and alternate tuning. Celtic, country...whatever. Get your fill of DADGAD, open G and whatever tickles your fancy. Strictly on topic please.

DAGDGC Tuning?

Post by JoeHempel » March 31st, 2009, 10:49 pm

I was going to learn a fingerstyle song that was by Uli Boegershausen, but this tuning I've never heard of, how do you tune your D string to G, or the G string to D for example. When I listen to it it doesn't sound like it's in a weird tuning.

It just seems wierd.

He probably substituted a G string for the D and a B for the G.
I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

You mean like the actual string right? Hmm...

Here's a link to the video that I saw

I can't tell if he switched out the strings or not.
