A tweak from experience

I've been fooling with the 8-string copedent on the back neck of my Williams. I discovered that the B to A lower doesn't sound at all like at A to B raise, and the raise is that "country sound". Here's the update:
   LKL LKV LKR  P1  P2  P3  P4  P5  RKL RKR
F# +G +G
D +D# -C# +E +E
B +C +C#
A +B -G#
F# -F +G
D +D# +E +D#
B +C -A
G -E -F#
Chuck's still building the guitar. It's been 4 months since I ordered it.

Hope you get your guitar soon... my Zum had a 9 month gestation period. I know what it's like to futz with tunings while waiting.
