Huh, I must have deleted it since nobody showed interest. I re-uploaded it and here's the linktkoehler1 wrote:Hi, I went to look at your video, but it's not available any more. It's been a while since your post. I'd like to see your invention if you care to post it again.
I tend to agree with what you say. Nowadays I have my 10-string tuned like the Romantic tuning except up a whole step, as if putting a capo on the 2nd fret. Also, I play mostly pieces in B major and that makes the 10th string, normally A#, now B# (C). This tuning sounds really good. It's not too low and I don't repeat the basses like A or D (now they're A# and D#) ... well actually up a whole step they're B# and E#.attila57 wrote:In my experience damping becomes an issue only if you use low basses like B or A, and especially if you use diatonic low basses. The A string can be really annoying, because lots of harmonics tend to appear on it.
That's why I prefer to stay above C, even with 10 strings. I don't like the deep basses anyway, because in my opinion it is impossible to get a decent low note with 650 mm string length.
My basses start with C or D, and so I have much less to worry about.
It might be interesting to you that I've done some experiments with scordatura tunings a half step up, too, to achieve better string tensions and overall resonance.soltirefa wrote: Nowadays I have my 10-string tuned like the Romantic tuning except up a whole step, as if putting a capo on the 2nd fret. Those really low basses make the guitar sound too muddy.
