Answer #7

The most standard tuning is E A D G B E but it can be tuned lots of ways.

When kids have toy guitars I usually tune them for bar chords where they can play Major chords open or by baring up and down the neck. Usually E G# E G# B E.

There are many alternate tunings that have one advantage or another over standard tuning. Some are easier for players of other string instruments to adapt to; some make certain riffs or chords that are difficult or impossible with standard tuning easy. Tuning guitars flat or even transposing them down half a step to several steps produces a darker sound. Eb tuning with each string half a step lower is common and to get even darker sounds guitar players have tuned their strings even lower; sometimes down to Bb. Down tuned guitars gives heavy metal it’s characteristic dark ominous sound.
