This DVD provides the answer for guitarists who want to begin to explore the world of alternate tunings. In this lesson Pat Kirtley presents simplified but highly musical and playable arrangements in four different tunings. The arrangements presented where chosen for advanced-beginner to intermediate skill level, and to illustrate the differences and unique features of each tuning. This is an excellent first step into an interesting aspect of contemporary guitar playing. Pat shows you: how to tune your guitar to each of the tunings; how to get into the tunings without need for an electronic tuner; the pros and cons of alternate tunings; complete instruction for each tune including full explanations and split screen versions showing both hands at once; harmonic "chime" techniques; right-hand fingerstyle techniques. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
