Standard Tuned Guitar
I have always admitted to be in favour of guitar players who provide tasteful backing on a standard tuned guitar (ie EADGBE). I think it is more interesting than all of that open tuning. I don’t hear it being used to much effect that often and mostly because there aren’t that many players I know of that use it. I believe Gavin Ralston is one but that’s all I know of. Most other players use DADGAD and drop D.
Could someone please recommend guitar accompaniments who use standard tuning to good effect please? I probably have recordings of some but wasn’t aware they used standard tuning. Does John O’Connell (the Offaly man who I haven’t heard recorded on any CDs) use standard tuning? I think he may and I like his backing.
