    I've had a Mushok bari for years but am just now accepting that i do not have the patience to learn to play BEADGB.

    So i tuned it to BEADF#B and my world changed :rolleyes:

    Wow. Shake my damn head!

    Oh yeah, I tune in Std A and Std B on my two baritones. There is next to no use for BEADGB on a six-stringer. (For me.)

    Now, on a 7 stringer, you can choose BEADGBe or BEADF#Be depending on how you want to approach your chording - a regular six stringer with a low B, or a down-tuned six stringer in B Std with a high e?

    Well the good news is that i have so little skill to distribute across 6 strings that spreading them out over 7 is completely out of the question :D
