Tenor Guitar - CGDA vs GDAE tuning?
I recently purchased a tenor guitar that came from the manufacturer tuned CGDA like a tenor banjo which I intent to play at traditional Irish music sessions along with my mandolin.
The tenor guitar can be tuned to GDAE with the proper set of strings allowing me to play tunes I know with the same fingering as a mandolin. Thus avoiding go through the re-learning process to play tunes with CGDA tuning.
What is the most common tuning of a tenor guitar - CGDA or GDAE - for Irish music? How do you have your tenor guitar tuned and why?
Your input will be greatly appreciated.
