Re: Share your alternate tuning ideas
i use NST with a crappy paul copy of mine, and i must say i like it alot, the range is wonderful - the reason i use it with a poopy guitar is that i dont want to mees up any of my good guitars, haha
to use NST you need a completely custom set of string gauges and a guitar that can handle it, it tends to twist up necks and guitars need some time before theyre "used to" NST some say even a year of playing a guitar in NST prepares it for the tuning.
Overall the tning is great, it lets me be creative without playing what i'm used to playing.the other thing is the chords, theyre incredible! all the voices with the wide range will just blow you away
