Thread Name: OPEN D TUNING
Subject: RE: OPEN D TUNING
RiB, I know I'm flogging a dead horse here but I've been tuning up to pitch for a long time and it works but I do it to prevent the string (or perhaps the tuner) from slipping to a slightly lower pitch, which in the case of low E to D would have the string moving in the opposite direction than you would suppose it's "memory" would dictate. This is just my experience and I'm not trying to devalue anyone else's, just curious.
