Knowing you may be reluctant to head into uncharted territory, Martin has made a lesson that takes the "fear factor" out of retuning, showing you how to see the tunings and understand them in intervals, bringing a variety of tunings into focus: open G, open D, CGCFCD (his personal favorite), CGCGCE (banjo double-C) and DADGAD. You'll learn to recognize similarities with the set-up you already know, and how, once you get used to the idea of altered tunings, they are actually easier to play. Plus you'll discover your own ideas through an exploration of some of Martin's favorite pieces: "Come Write Me Down," "The Green Linnet," "Icarus," and others. Early intermediate. Note/tab included as PDF on the disc. 90 min.
