I wish I could see the look on your face the first time you tune down to Open G and give the open strings a strum. Pure Magic. Even the open strings are an incredible sounding chord.
Some of the most compelling guitar riffs are in Open G tuning. You need to tune your guitar down into open G, and join the party! It’s amazing how easy it is. The techniques, chords, and scales are much simpler. It’s almost like an “easy” button for the guitar!
If you’re a fan of the Stones, you’re fan of open G tuning. Keith Richards from the rolling stones is quite famous for playing in Open G tuning. There’s just something about the tuning that makes chords, and riffs way easier. More natural sounding as well! Keith Richards would often remove his low E string when playing in open G, but you don’t have to. This is something I would recommend experimenting with if you have an extra guitar you can keep in Open G at all times.
I might be a little far fetched here. But I honestly feel like open G should have been the standard tuning for a guitar. Especially if you like to play the blues. Get ready to have fun, and make amazing music with half the effort!
