B tuning (5 down)
« on: January 03, 2005, 04:12:09 pm »
from the other thread about the tuning of soundtrack to the rebellion being B tuning (5 down)

how do you make your strings not be wobbly and difficult to play because of the wobbly looseness ?

even my thicker strings get wobbly, what gauge do you use for this tuning ?

0.13g would be the high E being 0.13.  Just go to a music store and ask for some 13 gage strings, they'll know what you're talking about...  Or they should.

My friend who tunes his guitar BEADGB buys sets of Baritone guitar strings for his.  I'm not too sure on the details, though.

ive been told by soem people that if you want to tune really nicely to B tuning that you buy a set of strings for a 7 string guitar and then just use the 6 thickest, or you can find out the guages of the thicker ones and then get singles, i dont think any company makes a super heavy 6 string set. You could try some ernie ball bulky slinkys or such. I like B tuning but i prefer the type of tuning in flames uses C F A# D# G C. enjoy!
