Guitar Alternate Tuning


Here is a BIG List of alternate guitar tunings I found:

If you’re a guitar player then you don’t need to just limit your playing abilities to the standard E tuning. There are virtually hundreds of different tunings for the guitar and interesting ones are being discovered everyday. But for those who want a fast start to alternate guitar tunings, here’s a list of sweet tunings to try. As a tip, if you try one of these, you might want to have a guitar tuner standing by so that you can tune back to standard E.

 

This is for standard tuning. It will help you get your guitar back in tune if you do not have a tuner handy.
