I'm just curious.
Does anybody knows any band or songs tuned higher than E Standard?
Thanks.

Whats the point you could already hit all the notes any way? unless you mean some sort of open chord tuning i dont see any point in it at all

Anyone that uses a capo.


Also, "Little Guitars" by VH is done in a higher tuning (on a smaller guitar, as the title would suggest).

You capo the first fret in E-Standard, which is basically F-standard tuning

I don't think that's possible without getting the string so tight that it doesn't vibrate (and thus makes no sound) or without snapping the string altogether. But I have heard of tuning all the strings other than E one step up. But even then, it's still technically tuned to E. Dave Mason does this for "We Just Disagree."

A set of 8s would easily handle F standard.

I believe Alex Lifeson tuned up to F or F# for The Big Money on Power Windows.

Why bother tuning up when you can just use a capo?

because open strings sound different. if done on a recording, tuning up can make it sound exactly the way the artist wants. then using a capo live for that song so you dont have to worry about having a guitar strung with 8's or whatever.


one song i know of tuned up is audioslave's "like a stone," which is tuned a step and a half up.

This. They also tune the first and second strings in unison.

E#(E sharp) would be better playability than F. the tighter the strings are the more supceptable your guitar is able to break strings.

Fender American Stratocaster

Some Burzum is tuned up to either F or F#, afaik.



Most of the early Burzum songs are tuned to F, fueling Varg's insatious appetite for treble. Black Spell of Destruction is a good example where this tuning works well, because of the arpeggios
