  • Getting along with Nashville

    Posted by Timbothirroul on March 16, 2022 at 3:40 am

    Today is the first day of using Nashville tuning (the bottom fours strings are an octave higher) I did the daily challenge of “getting along with others” (Pinky workout)

    Weird and interesting. One benefit is that it makes vertical navigation easier. When I hit the octave change I know what string I am on!

    I had to look up Nashville tuning. Sounds pretty interesting. This is when having multiple guitars to tune differently comes in handy. 🙂

    @Cadgirl Theres a difference in strings too. Cool tuning @Timbothirroul . You’ll have to let us know how you like it.

    Thank you @Cadgirl and @Loraine for your comments.

    I first heard about it on Acoustic Tuesday 174 around the 6 minute mark.

    It is a challenge and after mucking around on it for a while I will move the strings from my main workhorse to a spare guitar that someone lent me.

    They are the high strings from a 12 string set. There is a nice vid on AT 174 of a cool performance with the tuning.

      @Timbothirroul , I was just watching some of the older Acoustic Tuesday shows, not as far back as 174 thou. But, I just put it on my notes to pull up. I have missed a lot of them and Tony usually has something that is totally interesting. Good for you for trying it out.
