Today’s tuning is Open G 7sus with the following open string notes:
D G C F G F
Here is a video of a song/idea titled “Harder Now” that I wrote today while improvising in this tuning. The song is in the key of F Major:
Below is the chord chart for “Harder Now.” The orange highlights indicate where to put your fingers. You’ll also see the notes are written as numbers.
It’s late in Alt Tuning Land so I’ll just end with a big THANK YOU for reading, sharing and most of all enjoying these alternate tunings.
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…
