You will noticed that the tuning for this song is DECEIVING!!! because you think that
your guitar was already tuned correctly!!! the fact is I am one of the persons who
discovered that the Tuning for the guitars of this song should be higher than E but
lower than F in the first top string. It means you have to tune up 1/4 step first.
For 1/2 step, it's only sharps(#) and flats(b) except E and B then F and C.

Tuning: Irregular; tune 1/4 step E+ A+ D+ G+ B+ e+ and a CAPO ON FIRST FRET of your
guitar just like standard but higher a little. What is your interpretation to irregular
tune? As I mention why I place + symbols after each note beacuse there is an irregular
tune that is higher than E but lower than F.Yes It's true!!! As I tune my guitar, these
irregular tunes won't equalize to neither E or F at your sixth string and the other
below strings too!!!! Still confused?

here is a little chart for irregular tunes and their equivalent.

C+=C#- such that + means upper the tune while - means lower down.
D+=D#- or Eb-
D#+ or Eb+=E-
E+=F- is used in this MICHELLE BRANCH song BREATHE
F+=F#- or Gb-
F#+ or Gb+=G-
G+=G#- or Ab-
G#+ or Ab+=A-
A+=A#- or Bb-
A#+ or Bb+=B-

hey!!! let's start the song now!!! I think I explained it a lot for you guitar players!!!! Trust me!!! I'm telling the truth that the standard E A D G B e tuning is not enough to play this song because you will say that your guitar is too low for tune even your guitar was already tuned correctly.Here it goes! MICHELLE BRANCH ROCKS!!!!!! Again tuning: E+ A+ D+ G+ B+ e+ then Capo on first fret. Actually if you don't want to use a capo, you can still play this song but still using an irregular tune for F+ A#+ D#+ G#+ C+ f+ so in mathematical expression from E to F is 1/2 step up then F to F+ is 1/4 step therefore 1/2 + 1/4=3/4 step up is needed without a capo while E to E+ is only 1/4 step up if you need a capo on first fret. Clear? Now I promise you that the tuning 1/4 step will sound very excactly as you hear the song and pardon me for my redundancy. Here it goes!!!
