ACDEGA - Pentatonic

Description

Pentatonic A minor: Also nicknamed the viking tuning this tuning is both limiting and liberating as it s tough to play many modern melodies but also easy to play 4th and fifth intervals with a nice octave. Historically-informed musician Ben Bagby uses these intervals for his performances of Beowulf.
