I tried the F7 tuning for awhile, but I'm liking this G7 tuning a lot better. Thanks Shane.

"Thanks Shane"!!!, I normally tend to struggle a bit with 4 string CBG's, but have found this great Blues Riff and Great Sounding Tuning Tutorial easy to play, and will now look at my 4 Stringer's in a different light :-D   

Thanks Shane. Good lesson. I will try it out.
