Q: hi sterling I think your great, could you please tell me the tunings you use most on your guitars, thanks hmetal321@yahoo.com
A: thanks for asking, interestingly enough I use standard guitar tuning (though 1/2 step down) on all my lap steels with a Low B on the 8 string and a double high E on the first two. I have been fooling around with a bit of E7 tuning my second string E down to D and we also do some drop D tuning but mainly my tuning runs (string1 through 8) Eb, Eb, Bb, Gb, Db, Ab, Eb, Bb.
