  1. Hey man, good morning 🙂 I recently discovered this tuning and I’m enjoying it. I appreciate that you drew out the major scale notes but I was wondering if you could depict the minor scale notes in that same tuning, please? I appreciate your time if you have any to do this for me, thanks a bunch.

    1. Hi, Eric – I’ll send you an email about this.

      Thanks for reaching out!
