Try Nas hville tuning
If it’s good enough for the Stones, it’s good enough for us...
Nashville tuning duplicates the higher set of strings on a 12-string. It’s great for breathing new life into even the most simple parts and is lots of fun to play alongside someone in standard tuning. The Rolling Stones’ Wildhorses is a great example. Here’s how it works:
1. Remove your guitar’s sixth, fifth, fourth and third strings (E, A, D and G respectively).
2. Replace them with the ‘octave up’ E, A, D and G strings from a 12-string guitar set.
3. Tune them to E, A, D and G, you guessed it, an octave higher than normal.
4. Be careful of the third string. This will be pretty tight, so tune up to pitch slowly. It can help to tune your guitar to E A D G B E instead of EADGBE.
5. Strum and enjoy!
