Because we get asked this a bunch via email or in person, I thought it might be helpful to throw up the tunings for all of our songs. It includes songs that are on our new, unreleased (for now) album, but sadly, not Ghost Cat, Thumbs, or At the Pool, because I can’t remember them right now. Hope to find them soon. All of them are from lowest (thickest string) to highest (thinnest string). Sometimes mix-matched gauges of strings will help with sustain/tone. Have fun:
