It’s Friday night in Alt Tuning Land. I hope your work week is over and the weekend includes lots of alt tunings!
Today’s tuning is Open Bm add4 with the following open string notes:
E F# D F# B D
These open string notes are identical to yesterday’s tuning except String 5 changes from A to F#. This changes the open chord from B m7add11 to Bm add4.
Today’s song is called “Swindler” and is in the Key of B Natural Minor:
Here are the scale notes, numbers and intervals of B Natural Minor in Open Bm add4 Tuning:
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…
