Guys,
I am close to finishing my second 4 stringer. My first is tuned GDgb which I like but my playing style seems to better fit a GDG tuned 3 stringer. I can't decide between DGBD or GDgd for this one. I mainly play blues usually with a slide. Any suggestions would be appreciated .

Thanks for the response Stumblecol. I tuned my 1st 4 stringer from GDGB down to GCGC and it is a cool tuning!
I think I will end up tuneing the new one DGBD. By the way I love the video you posted today.

Jim

Hi Jim DGBD will give you the option of using that 4th string to do lead runs on and also walk the bass lines. It,s one of my Favorite tunings .
