Today marks tuning #101 since January 1, 2016. Today’s alternate tuning is Open A9 with open string notes:

E A C# G B E

Tonight’s song/idea is titled “Above and Beyond” which was written while I was improvising in the Key of D Major.

Here are the chords I’m playing including a D9 chord which is out of the scale by one note (C).

May these daily alt tunings continue to inspire you as you explore songwriting beyond the limitations of standard tuning. If you’d like to learn more about making alt tuning a part of your songwriting, give me a call at 888-7-GUITAR or reach out to me here.

Until next time…
