Thread Name: OPEN D TUNING
Subject: RE: OPEN D TUNING
Ah, Lucius ...

"Guitar strings have memory. I use a tuner attached to my guitar, but I often find that halfway through a song my strings want to return to their original setting."

I can envision this occurring during a particularly difficult tune and creating performance havoc.
