Hi all, first of all, sorry if this question is in an inappropriate area of the forum.

here is the video:
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=9O_nFJpFoYc&feature=related


and I want to know, what is the model of the guitar (sunburst) ?
the headstock kinda suggests a washburn but, not really sure..
I know it's difficult to find out the exact model, the make will do

and also if you don't mind, what tuning do you think he is playing in, because it kinda sounds different to my ears

thanks in advance

I'm pretty sure its a Guild. No idea on the model or the tuning, as I don't currently have sound on this computer

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

well all i can say for sure is that they are playing in the key of c# minor. most commonly, or at least with bands i know, they would be playing in drop c# (c#, g#, c#, f#, a#, d#) but they could also be in c# standard, which would be c#, f#, b, e, g#, c#

I think it's actually a Guild. The headstock is too skinny to be a Washburn

It's DEFINITELY a guild. You can see the headstock at 1:02. But yeah... guilds of today very very commonly come in that kind of burst.

Holy crap, I was right!

Oh, and I wasn't patient enough to watch it for a better shot of the guitar beyond the point that I was like "Hmm...Guild?"

Mmmmm.....Guilds......

I actually really like the HUGE Guilds headstock. Lots of people hate it though.

(And just for the record, the lead singer is playing an Ovation.)

As for their tuning- they're a Turkish band, so they might be using something traditional to the region...or something that makes playing traditional tunes easier.

See if you can narrow your search by linking it to Turkey in some way.

For instance,

Oud, a Turkish instrument, may be tuned:

Turkish style: D G A D G C
Standard Egyptian/Arab: D G A D G C
Old Turkish Classical: A D E A D G
New Turkish Classical: F# B E A D G
Turkish/Armenian: E A B E A D
Turkish/Armenian Variant: C# F# B E A D

My guess? They're playing in something along the lines of the last one.

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

what about the chords played, how do I figure out the way to play the chords on one of those kinds of tunings?

thanks

My guess?

Unless you can find a Turkish/Armenian teacher (or a consummate pro), you going to have to try trial and error... plus watching a few more band videos very, very, very closely.

That's how I had to go about learning NST (C-G-D-A-E-G), since I don't know of any Guitar Craft teachers in my area.

thnx very much,

found this guy playing in that tuning you said
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=A_AHXRYB7Pw

and it sounds very very similar

eafan, you've just repaid whatever debt you thought you'd owe me- until that link, I hadn't even thought of searching youtube for exemplars of NST artists beyond King Crimson, California Guitar Trio, Tony Geballe or the League of Crafty Guitarists.

Most of their stuff is prog or quasi-classical:

as opposed to that folk/blues approach in the link you provided.

Thank you!
