On this easy exploration for novice players, Mary teaches tunings that will help you play beautiful songs and instrumentals almost immediately. She helps you work out songs for each tuning, starting with dropped D tuning and a basic fingerpicking version of "I'll Fly Away." You'll then learn open G, G6, D and D minor tunings, how to embellish using various chord positions, scales, harmony lines, hammer-ons, pull-offs and other techniques. Songs include: "Spanish Fandango," "John Henry," "Amazing Grace," a "carnivalesque" tribute to Bo Carter, "I Shall Not Be Moved," "Do Lord" and "Jesus is on the Main Line." Note/tab included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 75 min.
