Free Hands Friday #43 – Tunings

This week’s episode of Free Hands Friday features Greg Howard, and is all about tunings for the Chapman Stick and related instruments manufactured by Stick Enterprises.

We’ll take a look at some of the more popular and current set of tunings offered by Stick Enterprises: Classic, Baritone Melody and Matched Reciprocal. We’ll also delve into some history on the reasoning behind the unique tuning of the Chapman Stick and the natural evolution of the Free Hands methodology around it.

If ever you wanted to understand all the options available to you, regardless of whether you play a 10-string, 12-string, 8-string bass or NS – well, now you can!
