#FACFAF. Curtis Mayfield «Black Keys» Open F# Guitar tuning (F#A#C#F#A#F#). Quick reference guide.
Possible reasons to use this tuning
- You want to think of playing guitar in a different way (and, of course, sound differently).
- You want to play as fewer strings as possible for a specific chord
- You like to play chords on piano
The purpose of this book
- Lets you try this tuning without counting intervals in your head. Just change the tuning, grab the chord diagrams and try to play some songs with them.
- Makes regular switching between tunings easy. Lets you quickly refresh this tuning in memory.
Required level: None.
- Really, this book is just about a tuning, not the musical theory.
- You can either just place fingers the right way and explore different chord forms without any idea of what is happening. It will sound interesting, anyways.
- Or you can think of how chord structure changes in comparison to standard tuning — then all the digits here are for you.
- When you need something that is not covered here, for example, Cm7(♭5), you should play Cm7, and flatten its 5th yourself. As well as add9, add11 and other modifiers.
