Reviews - What do customers think about Open Tunings Chords, Tuning Charts and Scales?
A Handy and Solid Sourcebook. May 27, 2008
This little tome pretty much has it all (including a good price). I haven't seen any other similar product that does it any better. If you want to wade into alternate tunings -- a good place to start. I keep it as a reference for when I want to try different variations and expand on my standard patterns. Recommended.
