When you listen to some of those early 60's pop records like The Rolling Stones, you can hear the guitars out of tune! (In the days before tuners).

I'm guessing that this question goes here, although it's more of a string question. Does anybody know a brand that makes thicker gauge for 7-strings? Except Daddario Chromes, they're a bit expensive here in Sweden.

Just order them from Musicians Friend. They're only like 12 bucks compared to the 30 they run at a shop and are pretty friggin heavy at .65. I don't go quite that heavy on my strings so i get Kerly Sinister Strings Heavy which are 11-58 and cost 9 bucks which is about half what they normally run.

I use a few weird tunings for some of my genius music and was wondering if there are actually proper names for them or if I'm just some sort of fuckin' maverick mould-breaker. Here they are:

Tuning #1:

E -- D# [down ]
B -- B
G -- F# [down ]
D -- D
A -- A
E -- E


Tuning #2:

E -- E
B -- A [down 1]
G -- F# [down ]
D -- D
A -- A
E -- D [down 1]


Tuning #3:

E -- E# [up ]
B -- A# [down ]
G -- G
D -- D
A -- A
E -- E


Regardless of whether or not they can be named does anyone know of any music that may have employed them? I'd be interested to hear what other people do with these tunings.
