Alt Tunings Thoughts
by Harold on 2013-01-13 17:47:16.1680

Has anyone had luck with alt tunnings at bedroom practice level not hearing normal tunning to.

Or does one need to be at gig level or band practice level to not hear it. Tune to standard tuning of the

guitar It is really noticable but if i tune the guitar down a half step then use alt tunnings not nearly as

noticable. I am kind of sure part of it is you feel it from playing the guitar

Next if you have someone close to you I assume they will hear alt tunning and reg but will they hear

it at a distance from you or only the alt tunning. Hope this makes sense.

Wonder how loud they are on the line 6 videos when they record them. Like Deans alot.

Try closed-back headphones.

Are you refering to isolation headphones.

No, just regular closed-back headphones should do the trick - no need for fancy noise-cancelling or isolation, just something that covers the whole ear. This is what I use:
