which tuning?
« on: January 18, 2010, 10:32:13 PM »
I have a real nice Vega.  I now have it tuned to Gdae.  I like this , but I also have a mandolin.  tuned the same.  I was wondering if changing the strings back to a "CGDA" set would further my experimentation. What tunings do y'all (read you all), tune to, besides CGDA?
-Thanks,
Eric

It is a 19 fret?  If so, it can accommodate different tunings (may need to research string guages) GDAE. CDGA, DGBE, CGBD, DGBD,  etc.  :Hustle:  Here is a link to a website on tunings:  http://www.irish-banjo.com/instruments/tenor-banjo/tunings.html
