Today we find ourselves in familiar territory - Open C#m Tuning. I played in Open…
The notes of Open G7sus tuning are:
F G C G C D
Today’s video is a song called “Drivin’ Mine” that I wrote while jamming in Open G7sus tuning. I really like the intro riff, but I’m pretty spent tonight so I didn’t really develop the idea like I would have liked.
I do add the note A to the scale.
Below are 6-string fretboards that show some of the scale notes, numbers, scale degrees and intervals of C Natural Minor in Open G7sus 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…
