About This Course
 
Alternate tunings can create beautiful guitar sounds that are impossible in standard tuning, and make some things easier to play. You’ll learn to play fingerstyle melodies in a variety of popular alternate tunings, including favorites like dropped D, DADGAD, and open G, as well as more unusual tunings.

The first alternate tuning you’ll learn is probably the most common, and just involves tuning the low E string down to D. Doug talks about some of the advantages of playing in dropped-D tuning and shows you how to get into dropped-D tuning.
