    'Brazilian tuning' on the seven-string.

    Has anyone else tried it? Basically it's CEADGBE, like the top seven strings of a ten-string classical (GbAbBbCEADGBE). Apparently Brazilian guitarists use it as their standard tuning.

    It's wierd, but pretty cool, and makes it a lot easier to play songs that were originally written in C standard.

    I actually have messed around with that before. But, it's been so long I don't even remember what I thought about it. I'll probably go fuck around with that tonight.

    So all you're doing is tuning the low b up to c? I'll have to try that out.
