    Upon listening to Morphine the other day I was inspired to try some alternate tuning using fifths to figure out just what Sandman was doing. I tuned the 4-string fretless to CFCG. I found the ability to play a number of different open chord variations with a great growling slide sound. Give it a try, you'll have a blast.
