Standard Tuning (E.A.D.G.B.E)

The familiar EADGBE tuning is called the Standard tuning. Some tunings are named for the chord that is sounded when the open strings are played (Open G, D Minor). Some are named from an instrument that tunes in that same way (charango, dobro, cittern). Some are named for the structural relationship among the strings (the All Fourths, Minor Sixth). Others are named after a song which uses the tuning (Admiral, Four and Twenty). Everything needs a name.
