On Monday, Serptember 11th, 2023, I was fortunate enough to play the first of many corporate performances. To commemorate this special event, I asked my friend Michael Blow(ski) to come along and lend a hand with tuning my guitars.
Typically, my guitar will be tuned in Standard D. This tuning is exactly like E Standard and tuned in 5th's. The notes are D, G, C, F, A, D. Using this tuning, allows one extra whole step on top of my vocal range. Sometimes I will use alternate tunings also. There are some other songs I perform like, Come N Go Blues, by Gregg Allman, which is in Open G. As a result of the D standard, this tuning is called Open F.
Also, the nature of my style incorporates bending strings while playing leads and as a result, the new strings tend to require a lot of extra adjusting between songs. Excited to have a guitar tech along for this performance.
Update: The Gig went great. Michael's assistance turned out to be essential. We almost got rained out! Stay tuned for more.
