Sometimes, the usual way of doing things isn’t enough. For example, take a guitar: a few centuries of music have been written for the standard tuning, and among that music there are masterpieces.

But at the same time, there is some music you just can’t make unless you re-tune the guitar strings into a different configuration — a dropped-D tuning, or an open one — in order to reach fingerings and harmonies that otherwise would prove too difficult. These are altered tunings, offering slightly off kilter ways to look at the familiar.

Altered Tuning is a boutique publisher of games, recordings, and books under the names Altered Tuning Press, Altered Tuning Records, and Altered Tuning Games.
