so it's drop C... but with that weird 2nd string G ?? cool.

Yeah! Having the second interval is great for playing unison lead bits and slightly dissonant chords

So I watched an interview with Keith Richards last night:


I was intrigued by how he described his 5 string open G tuning, which is apparently a common saying of his:
All you need is 5 strings, 3 notes, 2 hands, and one asshole

Longish story short, I decided to try it out on my resonator, but I didn't want to lose the 6th string, so I tuned it GGDGBG. It's actually super fun to play and rather drone-y with all the Gs. Going to keep it tuned that way for awhile I think.

The band I play guitar in is just regular drop C but I’m thinking about switching to DADGAD in C or something similar to get more drones on the high strings with leads. Not quite sure how to find panic chords and dissonant stuff as easily though?
