Thank you Kid for your reply. Of the three basic open tunings that you can reach easily from standard tuning, Vestapol - 151351 /  Spanish -515135 / Open C - 151513, the last one is the least popularized. Although, with the same interval arrangement you prefer on the 4 highest strings. 15(1513). As you may know, I am very fond of the 513 tuning for 3 string. As far as movable chords go, everything falls neatly in place. extending into 4 string like you did, makes perfect sense to me. Enjoy.

Thank you Kid and Sam for sharing.

Yes, if you use an open tuning with a minor third, it is easy to fret that note to return to a major third. This is what the old Blues masters called "Cross note tuning". Instead of Open D (DADf#ad), they tuned Open D minor (DADfad). This gives you the same advantage as standard tuning, when playing for example  an E chord. The open third string is the minor third  - G, playing the chord adds the major third - G#. By playing between them, you create that typical minor / major tension found in the Blues.

As for three string CBG, I found a 513 works out really well for movable chords. This is the subject of my instructional video #6.

A 153 tuning is actually quite unique in regards to the usual open tuning tone arrangements.

Thanks for sharing some more of the endless possibilities. Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee
