E 9th-10 Pedal Steel Guitar Tuning Chart.

This chart is showing what is called "sweetening your tuning".

Hank Ruf's - My recommended chart for beginner/novice players

F# - 440 (.012)----- G# 438

Eb - 438  (.015)----- D 440

G# - 438 (.011)----- A 440

E -  440 (.014)----- Eb 438----- F 436

B -  440 (017 or .018)--- C# 438

G# - 438 (.020 or .022p) ----A 440

F# - 440 (.026W)---- G 438

E -  440 (.030W)---- Eb 438----- F 436

D -  440 (.034W)----- Eb 440

B -  440 (.036W or .038W)----- C# 438

The above chart is to make it simple for the beginner to get started and not be overwhelmed. You may want to make changes as you become more familiar with your steel.

7. 437 - - 438
8. 440 - - 440
9. 438 - - 440
10. 439.5 - - 436.5

I sound better in tune with the rest of the band this way.

Jerry,  I don't tune my steel using the basis tuning chart either .  This is the way I recommend a beginner to start.  It will give them a start and less confusing.  They have enough to think about.

Hello Hank...

I agree with that Hank, it can be rather confusing sometimes This has been a hot topic for as long as I can remember.
