    Craig Korth

    This is an absolutely glorious tune that was requested by a Tunefox user. The artist that composed this tune(Craig Korth) uses a very unique tuning, and combines Scruggs, Melodic, and Single String technique. The tuning uses here is aDADE. Your 5th string is spiked at the 7th fret, G string tuned up to A, B string tuned up to D, and unwound D string tuned up to E. It's a lot of tension, so be careful if you haven't changed strings in a while!
