trent uses a guitar with all of the strings tuned to a D, but for the live show I developed this tuning:
as a way to use the guitar for more than just "swarm". my idea was to have a volume pedal at the foot of the Aclam floating stand so I could walk up to the swarm guitar while still wearing my main Parker, step on the volume pedal, and "swarm away"!
of course I will apply the idea to some performance of my own when I can tour again next year.
it takes at least 4 to 6 months to start over and organize a decent tour. we are working toward that now.
