I wasn't sure if this should go in Guitar and bass basics or here... But i'm i have a little problem

I was trying to figure out the tuning of a japanese band Last Alliance.

I figured 3 of the strings out, but i can not figure out for the life of me what the guitar is tuned in. Perhaps it's pretty much impossible to find out? A custom tuning?

6th-X
5th-X
4th-G
3rd-X
2nd-G#
1st-D

Appreciate it, sorry if this is the wrong place once again.

ummmm....

I'm psychic so I can tell you exactly what those other 4 strings are tuned to.
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...


...You're still disappointing them...

The the problem is that X isn't a note.

You're thinking of yellow. You have to turn the other strings to yellow.

Ughhhh I learned about something like this in theory. Eastern music has different letters for some notes. H is like a B or an A or something.

This reminds me of when Michael burned his foot on his George Foreman grill.

Stop acting like an imbecile. At least post a link to the song so someone can listen and then give you their input.

Rude much?

X stands for the string i DONT KNOW. I was thinking maybe someone was familar with those certain string tunings.

During the solo that's how i've tuned the specific strings.

I believe that the X's are unknown to him and he is asking if anyone familiar with the band Last Alliance is knows what the correct tuning for those strings should be.

Exactly, either that or if anyone has seen a tuning similar to that. I'm glad someone read it right.

The song was Shissou
#13
any of these?

Open G: low-high; D-G-D-G-B-D
dobro Open G: low-high; G-B-D-G-B-D (occasionally adopted for ordinary guitar, but requires lighter fifth and sixth strings).
Russian Open G: low-high; D-G-B-D-G-B-D (the standard tuning for the Russian seven string guitar).

ghostnineone; I'm sure the 5th is G# so no. It's really weird you'd think a band would choose a certain tuning. I've never really heard of a famous band with custom-tunings.

Alaskan_Ninja; Agreed. lol

Asus2: low-high; E-A-B-E-A-E (very rare)
Asus4: low-high; E-A-D-E-A-E

B modalLow-High); B-F#-C#-F#-B-D#

Crossnote G: low-high; D-G-D-G-Bb-D

oh and

With five possible tunings for each string (+2, +1, 0, -1, and -2), there are as many as 15,625 (5x5x5x5x5x5 or 5^6) possible tunings for a six-string guitar.

The thing is i used the music video and it shows the part of the solo clearly. So i could see the frets and tune accordingly. Those have to be the correct string tunings, there's no way i could have done it wrong right? 0_0

So i take it i'm screwed? xD

if you tuned to the pitch of the fretted string...

what you posted isnt the open strings notes is it?
you brought a hooker to church?
#19
no it's the open strings, i just tuned it to the same pitch of what he was playing, then when i had the strings tuned i used an online tuner to see which notes they were.

if that makes sense... 0-0
