South America

These collected alternative tunings for the guitar are those from the area that is a border region between Peru, Bolivia, North Western Argentina and Northern Chile.

Caution one should use a normal to light gauge string set for nylon string classical guitars or steel string acoustics when experimenting with these tunings.  Some of the pitches higher then F# may require the changes of a single string or entire set.
