So recently I've started learning the Comfortably Numb Solo - When I looked at the tuning for the acoustic guitar playing in the background it said it was tuned to Nashville tuning....

What I have gathered so far is you put lighter strings the bottom four string of your guitar and tune them up an octave?

So...Out of curiosity can this be done on an electric?

And anyone know any songs that use this?

Cheers

Nashville tuning from I understand, I usually done with two guitars...One using the "normal" gauged (I guess) strings from a set of 12-string guitar strings. The other guitar is strung up using the octave strings an octave higher than the other guitar. In comfortably numb, what I believe he did was use the octave strings (is this the right term?) to make it so his guitar is what is often referred to as "high strung"; meaning the 4 lowest strings are up an octave than they normally are. Now, Unless you've got a 12-string guitar set of strings lying around, I don't recommend doing this with normal 6 string acoustic strings. Just wait for Obeythepenguin, he'll clear up everything here.
