Edmund Tuning to a 5 tone scale (9) Tuning to a 5 tone scale 07 Aug 03


I would like to record (for the grandchildren) a few Chinese songs I learned 50 years age (WWII) but don't know how to tune my guitar to the Chinese 5 tone scale.

Any suggestions    would be appreciated. Also how do you position the fingers to make chords in this tuning.

I am a musical idiot so please keep any suggestions as simple as possible.

Many thanks for any help ... Edmund
