You can change the tuning either from the drop down box, or by using the + & - buttons above the fretboard.

 

Now -that- is most excellent.

 

Thanks, Trucks!

Or just use the same voicings as usual and move the top two strings, if played, down a fret.

 

Hmmm. In theory that is absolutely correct. In practice, when you are barring 2 or more strings with a finger, or your fingers are already stretched/squashed into position.. It's not easy to just move back a fret. A lot of the time, you are more likely to find it easier to use a totally different voicing.

Open string chords? What are they? Do people use those? :eek: :-) hehe

 

I don't particularly mean 6 string chords though.

 

Like a dim7. I would barre with my index finger

Becomes a real PITA to use the same voicing

Not a finger bender, by any means... But as a passing 1 beat chord or such.. It makes it trickier than it needs to be.

 

There is probably a much easier, similar sounding voicing for 4th's tuning... Not that I would tune to 4ths.. But by having a quick butchers at the diagram I could immediately try out a whole handful of voicings (some of which may not have occurred to me straight away) :-)

 

And lol erm to address the "ask a bassist".... most bassists have 4 strings tuned to 4ths.. and so do I. :grin:
