This 8-string tuning is a split tuning with descending fourths and ascending fifths like the interior strings of a 10-string Stick in Matched Reciprocal™ tuning. This tuning opens up new scale positions by creating more space between the hands for familiar right-hand scales, thus enabling a strong new scale position when the hands are close together. Because the melody strings are a whole step lower than the Interior 8-String Classic™ tuning, the lettered melody notes match in stacked relationship with the bass on any given fret, descending in 4ths as the bass ascends in 5ths.
