I play with alternate tunings on my guitar. I've noticed several things.
No matter how I play it, the key of the song will be whatever my tuning is. Open C tuning leads to the song being in the key of C.
There are certain picking styles I've used. If I attempt to change this style, more than likely it sounds off.
What I'm trying to get at is that I'm having trouble figuring out new finger picking styles. Finger picking styles don't translate directly from standard tuning to alternate tunings well IMHO. What are some ways to learn new finger picking styles for alternate tunings and break old habits?
