++++ One of the attractions of the tenor guitar is the variety of available tunings. Tenors are typically tuned in fifths (usually CGDA, similar to the tenor banjo, mandola, or the viola), although other tunings are also common. 'Guitar tuning,' 'Chicago tuning,' 'baritone ukulele tuning,' 'Irish' or 'octave mandolin' tuning and various open tunings for slide playing are also commonly employed on a tenor guitar.
