One string washboard bass strung with a black tape wound low B tuned up to G. it sounds better when you tighten up the bass string for slide

I tuned my 4  into a seldom used tuning this morning (DGa#a#) and watched the godfather documentary the double a#a# having a kinda Italian mando sound. its a minor tuning but the double strings give it an interesting twist.

thanks Uncle John

This is a pretty basic intro into Sawmill tuning on a mandolin.  There should be some carryover to a guitar tuned the same notes an octave lower.  Fun tuning and pretty easy to learn - especially if you play a IVI 3 string.
