John Pearse #7380 Hawaiian Lap Steel, C6 Tuning

C6th is the most popular tuning for lap steel, largely because of the ease of playing both major and minor chords. There is a lot of instructional material for this tuning, which was often called Am7 in older literature.

The John Pearse gauges feature a heavy plain G (.024), which matches tones nicely between the minor chord on strings 1, 2, 3, 5 (A minor) and the major chord on strings 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 (C major).  Some people raise the low C to C# to include a 7th chord in the tuning (A7 on strings 3, 4, 5, 6).
