GUEST,Larry Leadbelly's strings (40) RE: Leadbelly's strings 01 Jul 04

Hello Bobby, The other guys are right, but I have an idea that I am currently using on my Hohner 6-string dreadnought. Try tuning down a step below concert pitch. I will show you what I mean from the 1-6 strings. 1. d
         2. a
         3. F
         4. C
         5. G
         6. D             This will make it easier to get a halfway "Leadbelly" sound out of any 6er. It is also easier to coax out "Irene" in Bb.

Just trying to help, Larry
