Perhaps I wasn't clear. I have a KLIQ tuner and I don't have all that much
trouble getting the guitar actually tuned in either tuning. -- but I'm
playing two Bach works: the boureé and the prelude from the first lute
suite. The first is in regular tuning , the second in dropped D. It is
trivial to switch tunings [harmonic 12 against either 4th string or 1st
string] but I haven't figured out a way to quickly get the guitar stable
after I switch.
I know that better [and richer :o)] guitarists than I am just use two
guitars, appropriately tuned.
For dropping down I'll try the go-low and then tune up to D. I guess I can
try the reverse for the other direction: go-high then tune down to E. I'll
fiddle with it.
