Shantymanuk Guitar tuning DAGDAD (76* d) RE: Help: Guitar tuning DAGDAD 19 Jan 02


When catspaw says you need special glasses, all I can think he means is those of the guiness variety that give musicians in Ireland and the world over such inspiration. When I was experimenting with tunings for a non-theoretical guitarist a couple of years ago, I used a program called "Guitar Chord Buster". It is shareware, gives you a 29 day trial, and costs about 40 bucks to buy after that. I needed this as I don't play guitar myself. It is still available (about 2.5Mb)for download - I found it easily this morning by searching for the title. (use quotation marks as above). You can input any tuning you like, and it will work out all the chords and alternative fingerings for you in that tuning, and will play them back through your pc to see if you like the sound, as all inversions sound quite different. All I can say is it will cost you nothing to try it. By the way, I have no connection with the author of this program, I just found it incredibly useful. Let me know how you get on.
