Devise of Alternate Tuning for Guitar which can Play both Major and Minor Triads by Only Barre Fingering and its Practical Use
support for beginners
Standard guitar tunings usually defines the string pitches as E, A, D, G, B, and E,from lowest (low E) to highest (high E). There are however various kinds of non-standard tunings called “alternative" or “alternate" tunings. Recently, some alternate tunings haveattracted the attention of schools and music therapy since they make it easier for a player to accompany simple songs. Based on the same interest, I devised an alternate tuning which allows the playing of both major and minor triads by only barre fingering. I believe this particular tuning has not yet been employed. This thesis outlines this alternate tuning I devised and offers various supporting methodology. I think the employment of this tuning is a good way for beginners of guitar to accompany simple songs.
