Here at Strings Direct, we've created some custom gauge sets inspired by the Joey Landreth's preferred Open C Tuning.

Like us all, Joey started out in standard tuning but quickly developed a taste for alternate tunings, influenced mostly by his interest in slide guitar.

 

He switched to open tunings in order to really commit and delve deeper into the possibilities of slide, settling on the following tuning which is somewhat of a variation on open E and a baritone principle.

In terms of intervals it is exactly the same as open E but is tuned down 2 whole steps.

To quote “It’s almost a Baritone tuning because it’s a half step above B”.

Joey's Open C Tuning - C - G - C - E - G - C

A further point of superhuman ability is the fact that Joey has re-learned how to play guitar within this tuning so his vocabulary has adapted to play songs normally played in standard... there is no end or limit to this man's talents and ability.

Unlike other artists that are able to utilise off-the-shelf strings Joey has very specific requirements. Something to be expected of course from such a complex and in-depth player.

Okay take a deep breath and check this out! Joey has his guitar setup with the following gauges

 

.019, .022, .026, .039, .050, .064 (**We have substituted a .039 in for Landreth's usual .040 as this is unavailable in the D'Addario EXL range)

For most players who think in standard tuning, this gauge sounds absolutely terrifying. However, put into perspective how far the tuning is coming down from standard, it starts to make a little more sense.

“Tension wise I think it's equivalent to a set of .013s in standard tuning.” (Excerpt - Total Guitar, Interviewer Chris Bird)
