Default Alternate Tuning (the beatles)


"Sleepwalk" is a bad example because lap and dobro players often use
open G tuning.

I guess "Rain" by the Beatles is the 1st alternately-tuned song
(Spanish 6-string) that I know. There must have been some earlier
ones, though.

Default Alternate Tuning (tuning)


Keith Richards made a career out of odd tunings. He plays an open G on
"Street Fighting Man," "Brown Sugar," "Happy," "Start Me Up" (among
others) and an open E on "Prodigal Son," "No Expectations," and "You
Can't Always Get What You Want," among others.

Ditto Joni Mitchell. She uses dozens of alternate tunings, many of her
own creation.

Neil Young was a big fan of the drop-D, and Bob Dylan uses an open E
on much of "Blood on the Tracks" (we're straying out of the '60s by
now, but you get the point).

Also Joni Mitchel for the most part.

Default Alternate Tuning (tuning so think)


You mean the guitar is using an alternate tuning? How do you know, or why do
you think so?

Default Alternate Tuning (tuning steel guitars)


They were playing Hawaiian steel guitars (like in country music, not sure
if they had pedals), not regular "Spanish" (i. e. 6-string) guitars.

Or a D tuning. Console steel players usually use E6 or C6 tunings or both.

Default Alternate Tuning (tuning the band heart)


Keith's open G tuning is the heart of the band's sound.

"Monkey Man" and "Wild Horses" are also open G. Most Stones tunes
transcribe well to bluegrass banjo; "Wild Horses" is a standard for
bluegrass bands, most notably Jerry Garcia's Old and in the Way.
