I play with big fat .12 strings, tuned down to C# (altogether, C#-F#-B-E-G#-C#). So it's thickness for jazz, lower tension for blues bending, and the detuned thunder of Black Sabbath. At that tuning, .12 strings bend easily enough and yet they *KRANG* like a piano.
So, uhhhhhhh... if I pick any chord from the, say, the E section...
...will that chord necessarily register as a C#?
Or is it anyone's guess? :confused: Would there be some chords that somehow translate as an F# or an Eb for whatever reason?
Stated otherwise, will every chord in that book register at precisely a whole + half step down (you know what I mean) every single time?
That's why thus far I'll only practice chords with a guitar that's strung with .10s and tuned to standard. But I would rather use my main axe, which is detuned to C# with .12s.
Could be a stupid question. I don't know. :confused:
