‘Solfeggio’ frequencies

The Solfeggio is a term often given to a collection of frequencies which when played release healing, wellbeing and restoration amongst other benefits. In actual fact this comes from the word Solfege which is a system for singing a scale. Despite that they do seem to have an effect and I believe they are a divine alternative to the modern 440hz tuning that has been made a worldwide standard.

These frequencies are:     396hz, 417hz, 528hz, 639hz, 741hz, 852hz, 963hz

Tuning for guitar and keyboard

In order to play and release these frequencies you’ll need to change the tuning pitch of your instrument from 440hz. Due to the constraints of the modern world you may find it hard finding a guitar tuner/keyboard with the necessary tuning range. Regardless, here’s a tuning guide along with the appropriate keys.

(‘Tune to’ = tune your A reference pitch)

      Hi Rachel

      No it’s not possible to tune the open guitar strings to those frequencies because they are so high. So you have to tune your guitar as instructed and play the appropriate notes in order to get those frequencies.

      Best wishes

    So I could set my tuner to A444 and follow the tuner through the eadgbe pattern for the strings and i would be playing in the 528 hz range? Are the chord shapes and scale patterns the same? If not then i think an in depth YouTube video is a must

      Hi James

      Yes – tune to 444hz and tune all strings

      play a C as follows:
      B string 13th fret
      E string 8th fret

      This will give you 528hz.

      Yes all chords etc are the same but you’ll only play 528 when you hit that high C
