E9 tuning is a common tuning for steel guitar necks of more than six strings. In particular, it is the most common tuning for the far neck on a two-neck table steel guitar or pedal steel guitar, most often combined with C6 tuning for the near neck, and also a popular tuning for single neck instruments of eight or more strings.

The E9 tuning has evolved to support optimal chord and scale patterns across a single fret on the 10-string pedal steel guitar.

Corresponding tunings for a six string lap steel guitar are the E6 tuning E-G-B-C-E-G, or E7 tuning B-D-E-G-B-E.

A popular E9 tuning for eight string table steel guitar is the western swing tuning E-G-B-D-F-G-B-E, low to high and near to far.

The standard Nashville E9 tuning for ten string pedal steel guitar is B-D-E-F-G-B-E-G-D-F.

"Nashville Tuning" can also refer to the practice of tuning the wound EADG strings on a standardly tuned six-string guitar an octave higher. This is usually achieved by replacing the standard-gauge string with the equivalent octave string from a 12-string set.

The Pink Floyd song "Hey You" from the album The Wall and the Kansas song "Dust in the Wind" from the album Point of Know Return are notable for using this form of guitar tuning. In "Hey You," David Gilmour actually replaced the low E string with a second high E (not a 12 string set low E octave) such that when he tuned the low E, it was actually 2 octaves up.
