Okay, you'll have to excuse me if this is a dumb question but I'm struggling to find info on three string scales in open E tuning. Is this because all I need to do is use the six string standard tuning and utilise the E, B, E strings information? I ask because, well because I don't know and before I get stuck into the lessons of learning them today I'd like to know if I'm doing the wrong thing haha. Is it different for a three string? The chords would obviously be different because there are less strings but does that also mean the scales are different?
Also, I've found on cigarboxguitar.com a list of chords in open G that, I think, was written by Gitty himself. Does anyone have a link to something similar? I've looked all over the net this morning, including images, but found nothing. I'd be mega appreciative if someone knows where I should be looking.
Thanks and have a great day.
Well I never knew that! So I can just use the GDg scales I've got but transpose them starting on the right fret. Interesting and massively helpful! Now all I need is a chord sheet for the EBE tuning haha.
Thanks times a trillion, Wayfinder. I really appreciate that.
Wayfinder calls it. One of the nice things about open tunings is that they often -not always play the same. IVI tunings: GDG, AEA, CGC, EBE - all have the same string relationships and play the same.
I have just discovered how much I like open "A" EAE on 3 string & EAEAC#E on six.
Check out wiki link & note of open E for slide & the reference to open G.
All sorted with the scales. I should have mentioned I meant EBE, sorry for the confusion. I've copied the pattern of a GDg chart so all is fine it would seem. I hope! Haha
If anyone has links to chord charts for EBE I'd be massively appreciative.
Thanks all for the help too. You're all superstars.
I have posted a bunch of free lessons in Open E (EBE) here: https://rickmckeon.com/cbglessons.html that you might like.
Apologies for not replying sooner Rick. Thanks a billion for the link. Great information, really helpful and a wonderful teaching manner you have too. Thanks again.
You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed it! Rick
Definitely enjoying it but also finding it really useful. I sometimes (often) struggle with doing one thing and then losing that one thing when I start thinking about the next part. Your methodology in teaching the steady bass line is challenging but because I can instantly see the benefit I've got the determination to keep trying. Hugely helpful. I'll try and get a donation in the tip jar come payday too BTW. More than worth it and thanks again.
