Steve Baughman
Steve Baughman's comments on the Orkney tuning.

All the information on this site is free. But if it is of value to you, I appreciate a tip.



 First Edition


Name: Orkney Family: Modal Root: Voicing:

I have adopted this name given by Steve Baughman to the tuning C G D G C D. If you want to know why it is called so, go to his website. It is a modal tuning, closely related to the popular DADGAD tuning.
