First part is tuned GDbd from standard tuning tune the D&G down 3 steps to G&D and the E one step down th D. Hope that's right. I have never seen a tuning on 6 sting with G note on the 4th sting.

2nd part Van. on scrap guitar. recorded this after I built this guitar but forgot the fills on the later parts. so I didn't post. But my heart just grew 3 times bigger.

Excellent singing and playing RTZ! Love Van. That guitar sounds like a winner and a good alt tuning.
