Carnatic guitar



This is a song in open tuning I wrote in the nineties ; I just discovered that its tuning is used in carnatic music, so I had to re-record it ! Rhythm guitar recorded with the piezo pickup of a PRS hollowbody, tuned (from high to low) in E-B-E-B-E-E. Solo improvisations with the Sustainiac pickup of my new Schecter Sun Valley Super Shredder, tuned in Eb.
Recorded with firmware 16.02

Can you say more about the chord forms that you are using over that tuning? That is very interesting.
When I first tuned my guitar like that, back in 1991, I just experimented to see what works. The most used shape is two fingers on the same fret, one string apart, like 5th fret on strings 2 and 4
