Alternative Guitar Tunings

The largest database for alternative guitar tunings on the internet. GTDB has been gathering information, chords, scales and tabs on different guitar tunings for over 5 years.

Use the "Search Tunings" to find your tuning.

Currently boasting 584 tunings, 173448 chords, 64240 scales and 273 tabs.

Custom Chord Sheets & Chord Maps

Chord maps are a way to find chords you already know in the Standard EADGBE tuning, then translate the chord shapes you already know into any tuning you want. For instance you may know C Major in Standard, but but playing a C in another tuning requires relearning chord shapes.

Take any chord map in your favourite tuning, choose a few notes from the map that look within reach and you'll have a tonally different sounding chord but it will be C Major you was looking for.

Scale Sheets

As with chords above, an array of scales have been worked out to correspond with your favourite tuning. From Major to Minor to the more obscure scale like Major Hungarian. From the nut up to the 18th fret scales notes are morked in black with the root marked in green.

Each alternate guitar tuning has 10 scales.

  • Harmonic Minor
  • Locrian
  • Lydian
  • Major
  • Major Hungarian
  • Major Pentatonic
  • Melodic Minor
  • Minor
  • Minor Locrian
  • Minor Pentatonic
