Very cool, Roy! Who knew? In lieu of a steel, I grabbed my Tele for a quick run through as its already almost in that tuning. Been also meaning to try your tuning Bob. I've experimented a little with ...

Brian, that D9th tuning I posted was just an example targeted to that person's question and not a good place to start cold. As others have said, when first moving from guitar an E major tuning is a gr ...

Very well explained, Nic!

FYI, Sand lays out in a very cool way in D9th. I usually use B11th for Nuages because of that rich dominant sound on the bottom but your version was very nice, Mike.

I am also in the camp that steels aren't inherently brighter but the amp settings also have a lot to do with the sound. Roll off the highs and boost the midi and lower mids if a thicker, darker sound ...
