Subject: RE: Help: Guitar tuning DAGDAD
The practice of changing the strings of the Lute for an easier playing is as old as the instrument. Lots of references can be found in the Arabian Nights.
I remember a short piece by Paganini for guitar in G major, very difficult to play at first, but easy when I changed the strings to GHDGHD (up).
