"well depending on how big you made it, surely you could acquire or make a big sound hole cover with a highly decorative design carved into it."

Uncle John replied to Matt's discussion GDG or EBE tuning
"I got here late, but will give my 2 cents worth.   CB John's answer was likely a good one.   Sounds like you were tuning one or more strings too high.  Okay, in the header, you ask EBE or GDG.  EBE (or DAD) sounds…"

Blind Boy Fullers replied to Matt's discussion GDG or EBE tuning
"I love a nice low EBE tuning for rockabilly, country and Mississippi hill country blues. I use Chickenbone John's Med balanced tension G-D-G strings (46w, 30w, 22w) tuned down - sounds a treat and you can bend notes to buggery. Sounds…"

JL replied to Matt's discussion GDG or EBE tuning
"In Guitar mode the tuner only knows the notes E2 A2 D3 G3 B3 E4 and won't show the other notes. you're after G2 D3 G3, and the tuner only knows G3, one octave higher than G2 - and KAPOW Same with the E2 B2 E3 tuning you want, D string…"

Grandpa replied to Matt's discussion GDG or EBE tuning
"  For EBe tunings, I use the EAD strings from a 6 string pack, .042/.032/.024. on a 25" scale. This gives a lower tone, which is how I like 'em. "
Aug 24, 2017
ChickenboneJohn replied to Matt's discussion GDG or EBE tuning
"You are obviously trying to tune the low G  an octave above what it should be. Also with that other tuning, taking that "D" string to to a B, you are trying to take it 9 semitones higher than it is intended, that's why it's…"
