Nick Drake tuning? Open G? Unlock new sounds on your guitar by exploring the 5 alternate tunings that changed acoustic guitar history today!
Alternate tunings on acoustic guitar can truly expand your sonic vocabulary. If you’re feeling fatigued or tired of playing the same things, spend some time exploring one of the 5 alternate tunings I offer in this episode of Acoustic Tuesday.
You get a chance to hear very popular tunings like DADGAD and Open D Maj while also learning how to play on the fretboard with them. With each alternate tuning, I’ll provide some basic chords or picking patterns that can be used with each alternate tuning.
Each one of these alternate tunings can take your guitar playing to places it has never been before. And that’s a good thing! Hearing your instrument make new sounds you didn’t think were possible is truly inspirational!
In addition to exploring alternate tunings on acoustic guitar, I also want to share with you the inspirational story of a veteran who overcame PTSD by learning to play guitar — oh, and he went on to teach other veterans how to play guitar, too!
Last but not least, you’ll get my roundup of the latest headlines in the acoustic guitar world. This week, we’ll take a look at three different YouTube series that are designed for guitar geeks of all interests!
As always, you can catch Acoustic Tuesday at 10 am every Tuesday.
