I really like this site and seem to find anything I need to find here. Last week a friend asked if I knew of a site that could do something and I found this one lacking in one area. He was looking for a site that could give him the chord formations for open tunings. I thought this site provided that since we have the scales for any tuning you want to make but I found that is not true for chords. I will be moving in that area myself soon and it would be nice to have the ability to look up a chord in any tuning I choose. Anyway, when you have nothing else to do, maybe you could add that.

Wishing everyone the best,

Gil

That is good idea, but when you can tune your guitar's six strings to 12 different note, result for "any tuning I want" is quite an task to accomplish... but addition to guitar chords tool to have it in a few most used tunings is not bad idea at all, and I think its doable with quite an easy coding... but believe me, this Admin can surprise people everytime ;) So lets see if he takes up the "challenge" :D

I think it's fair to say that once you actually reach that level - it's extremely important that you learn this yourself. When you first pick up a guitar the first thing you should learn is every note on every fret for every string. Now, when you change a tuning - you then need to adjust what you already know and it should be simple from there.

This site provides a lot already - but guitar isn't something that should be laid out for everyone step by step - I think it's extremely important for anyone who wants to be a good musician - to be able to do things like this for themselves. Hard work pays off, if it's shown to you as simply as it is on here then you'll soon forget.

But if you sit there and think about it everything will fall into place and become a lot easier.

I'll still have a word with the Admin, but I personally don't think this should happen on here.

Beginners are allowed to enjoy open tunings! I think?

You are very right dear Missy, but if we look it from pedagogical point of view, theres a fact that everyone learn things in different way, some people learn by listening, some people learn with writing things down and some people learn by seeing things visually.

Like me, a little simple when I am, I must see things and I remember when I first hit this site years ago, I was amazed by these tools, after my arrival theres been an additions to tools like circle of fifths tool that helped me a LOT, you know... isnt that the same thing, that shouldnt I learn that by myself? :), yeah... I did, with help of that awesome tool.

Anyway, as you mentioned this site provides lot already no doubt, and being an extremely good site on the net, its no shame to head into perfection, in tools as ourselfs.

Lets wait and see :P

Jazzy is old school. Learn the hard way and it will stick. I agree with this philosophy however I also like to use technology. Technically, the capo is cheating. It's technology. It was invented a few hundred years ago but the guitar was around long before. Many tools have been invented since and have made learning and playing easier.

There are many chord charts for alternate turnings out there on the Internet but it would be cool to have a tool on this site.

Often open tunings are only used in a few songs so a site where you could look up chords would be very helpful to me. I could figure them out but it would be like relearning the fretboard and it would certainly take a lot longer. What if you wanted to play an A9 in a drop D tuning? I haven't tried it but if you could see it on a chart, you may find that it is not practical.

I have no idea how complicated it would be for the programmer but after I saw that they we could find scales in open tunings, I wondered how complicated it would be to add the code for chords. Who ever does the programming for this site though is amazing. I rarely look at other sites now.

Understanding different tunings in the most simplistic way, is really just study of intervals and being able to transpose notes successfully.

If you look in the scales section, you will find yourself with the ability to select open tunings. Chords, as you know, are built from scales, therefore, if you understand what your chord looks like as part of a scale and you can literally visualize it with the scales tool on this site, you should be in good shape.

Check out my lesson, Music Theory - Turning Your Scales into Chords for reference.

Rock on!

You are certainly correct about that Guitarslinger but in open tunings sometimes certain notes are out of reach and it may be easier to reach another note in the triad. One option may be to draw a guitar neck and write out all of the notes in an open tuning. I think the combinations would be more visible. It would be a handy tool if it were not too difficult to add to the site though.

Guitarslinger, would you mind looking at a question that I put in the theory section of the forum and give me some feedback. I think I wrote, Some questions...like everyone else or something like that. Anyway, I have a question regarding scales that you can probably help me with.
