    First off, I'm not sure if this is in the right forum, but ah...I'm too tired to consider that.

    Wootens adaptation of that tune is tuned in tenor bass - ADGC. I myself cannot retune my strings like that...So i'm going to play it in standard. It's not too much of a challenge, except when it comes to the harmonics. I've developed a chart of harmonics...But seem to have misplaced it...Does such a thing exist of the internet? Also, what tips do you guys have about tapping high up the neck and still producing an audible sound, without overkill of the volume?

    Any suggestions? Harmonic related or otherwise.

    When I play it on standard tuning, I use false harmonics, it's easier that way :)

    When I saw him play Norweigen Wood Live during
    a clinic, Wooten was just using his regular
    Yin-Yang 4 string Fodera with standard tuning.
