CGCGCE tuning

open C guitar tuning CGCGCE
Dan’s principal guitar tuning is Open C (CGCGCE) and this unusual tuning contributes to his unique guitar sound.

Dorian, Aeolian and Mixolydian are popular modes in Dan’s folk repertoire, which add variety to Open C tuning, without the need to change key.

Rather than the even temperament of a chromatic tuner, Dan tunes his guitar using a natural temperament. The result is a powerful sound with sweet, natural intonation.

The combination of Open C tuning and natural temperament give Dan’s guitar a beautifully resonant sustaining sound.


‘‘it was wonderful to have the opportunity of working with such a superb guitarist"
