I don't like that one.

Can we try another tuning please?
















Just kidding!

Thanks for making our minds up for us!

BTW,
Is that low to high?  (like E-A-D-G-B-E)
or is it high to low? (like E-B-G-D-A-E)
Looks like high to low to me.  (or left handed)

If I invert it, it would be C G D# A# D# G# which makes more sense to me without actually stretching strings to find out.

Je ne comprende pas...Sad

Excuse my lack of musical knowledge here, but does this mean:

e--> down four steps --> C
b--> down four steps --> G
g--> up five steps   --> D#
d--> up five steps   --> A#
a--> up six steps    --> D#
E--> up four steps   --> G#

So...um...I'm just completely lost.  There's no way that's what you meant...

It has four sharps, so just in the key of E?  I have no idea...

So, Bivouac, I may be wrong, but (low to hi) D#, G#, C, G, A#, D# would work.
There could be many others...
Someone please correct me if this is wrong...

i assumed that tuning was written in standard format, high E to low E.

volthause will have to clarify as it was his tuning.

Ok, there's just no way you can do that tuning on a normal scale guitar...

You just have to lower your pickups... to the southern hemisphere.

I took it to mean...

e--> up 2 steps --> G#
b--> up 2 steps --> D#
g--> up 1 & 1/2 steps --> A#
d--> up 1 step --> D#
a--> down 1 step --> G
E--> down 2 steps --> C


Is this incorrect?

stop being a bunch of cry babies.  we already agreed that if you can't hang, you can dial it up a step.  that will get you D on your low E string.

don't you guys listen to kyuss?

that's A

7 string kits are great for this stuff without having to adjust yer geetar... and you know you're gonna need that extra high E at some point

edit: how did i miss the mooninites until now??
