EADEAE - Pipe

Description

EADEAE is an alternate tuning that offers some interesting sonic possibilities to guitarists. This somewhat unusual tuning was apparently discovered by English guitarist Martin Carthy who used it as a “pipe tuning”. Although the tuning can produce a droning sound that is useful for Celtic music it is a versatile tuning that has many uses. I have found that it works well even for delicate pretty pieces.
