Orkney Tuning One Hour Immersion
by Steve Baughman

Trying out a new open tuning is a great way to spice up your playing. Open Tuning refers to a technique where you retune your guitar so that you play chords with minimal fingering because the strings have been tuned to the chords already.

Orkney (CGDGCD) is a great place to start because it is very intuitive and accessible. This will be a total immersion experience targeted to early intermediates through advanced players in which we'll get in the tuning and then proceed to play for the whole hour. By the end of the class you'll be accompanying simple songs in the tuning, OR YOUR MONEY BACK! Chord charts will be provided. Bring guitars.

Steve Baughman is a Rounder Records recording artist. He has published five guitar books on Mel Bay and he appears with Pierre Bensusan and Martin Simpson in the Celtic Fingerstyle Series video/CD put out by Rounder. He lives in San Francisco near an N Judah stop.
