Open C Tuning

C major is probably the first chord that many guitarists learn. With Open C tuning, your guitar will naturally play the C chord without you having to touch any string. All you have to do is to tune the Low E to C, A to G, D to C, and B to C. The high E and G string remain the same. This unique arrangement gives an awesome and wholesome tone that’s pleasant to the ears.
