Watch the C 6 add 9 Tuning online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from Essentials: Open Tunings
(*Naming: This could also be called C6/9). Being on a tropical island, hearing the ocean’s gentle waves hitting the shore, seeing blue sky, feeling the warm breeze tickling bare skin, taking a deep breath and a sip of my margarita.
That’s what this tuning evokes in me.
There’s that same tricky interval of a major 2nd between the 4th and 3rd strings - so beware and expect some awesome surprises when you play around with single note lines and scale patterns! It also makes it easy to play those two strings together and get the unison. This can give a 12 string kind of sound - play around with the tuning to get slightly out.
Songs of mine: Impossinova –(Outside the Box and Live), Longest Night, What’s Going On (Marvin Gaye), Eleanor – (Up Close & Personal), Joy To The World (Merry Christmas).
