New Standard Tuning Setup :: 1986 Ovation 1867 Legend [5.1 lbs]
Have you ever heard the term, "New Standard Tuning (NST)"? I hadn't either until a couple weeks ago. This involves tuning the guitar to all fifths C-G-D-A-E-G (standard tuning is in 4ths). This NST tuning was popularized by Robert Fripp (King Crimson) in use of his "Guitar Craft" classes. Students attending this class all employ this tuning to remove familiar patterns and well-played riffs. The class then can focus more on basic techniques and a renewed relationship with making music on guitar.
