Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

ADDENDUM TO THE POST OF Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:36 pm (above): Since the non-bent notes in that tuning are best suited for melodic play in the key of F major, I will re-cast the diagram in terms of the Fmaj chord being the I chord : https://www.brendan-power.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=view&id=522
