Several years ago we published the Complete Book of Alternate Tunings. It received rave reviews and became our best-selling book ever, thanks to folks like you.
We joked in the intro to that book that we should have named it the Impossible-to-Complete Book of Alternate Tunings or some such, since new tunings and new uses for existing ones are being invented every day. To that end we have added this section to our website.
Over the next months we will regularly post outtakes from the Complete Book book on our website database. The listings will include pages and pages of information that we just didn't have room to fit in the book. Plus, I have been compiling new information weekly on the use of tunings in the guitar realm. That information will find its way into these listings as well.
Have fun with this information. Remember, in the Complete Book of Alternate Tunings there are 40 pages of listings like this. We would be happy if you checked it out.
