Open G tuning for guitarists

Open G Tuning


Open G Tuning

To change to open G tuning we only need to detune 3 strings, the 1st (thinnest), 5th and 6th strings.

Tune the 1st string down a tone to D – check it against your 4th string (which is a D). Do the same for the 6th string, down a tone to D – check it against your 4th string. Then finally tune your 5th string down to G – check it against your 3rd string (which is a G).

If you have a Line 6 Variax guitar you can program both tunings into the guitar, which means you can change tunings at the flick of a switch! Very handy indeed!
