Some ten months ago, or so, i bought 4 keith tuners.
I use them, (2&3) for earls tunes, use them ala pedal steel , use them for tuning changes ( with moderate success, ie even when set correctly, 1-2 key changes and the often need to be tweaked). Daad, daf#d, open g, Open c

Fwiw, i use and experiment with a lot of open tunings

I have had greater challenge in using the 1&4 tuners, and am asking for help, ideas.
I use then for C variations, crank the 4 up to E, 2 to C. But, i find im not really getting an idea on how to really use these as much as 2&3. i did figure out auld lange syne using all 4, per Beacon site.

Thoughts please. Im sure theres some obvious tunings key changes im missing.

Try "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" in G tuning and drop the fourth string to B at the part where the word "when" is in the lyrics. Run it back up to D at the word "she".
