B Tuning (B-E-A-D-F#-B)

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.

B Tuning (B-E-A-D-F#-B)

Post by Ian_390 » December 14th, 2009, 5:36 pm

ok so i've been wanting to tune to B Tuning. I normally play in C Tuning (C-F-Bb-Eb-G-C) with Ernie Ball Skinny Tops/Heavy Bottoms (10-13-17-30-42-52). my question is will i need heavier strings to tune to B Tuning? Any advice or tips are appreciated.

I've used this for years to figure out the best string gauges for any tuning:
