Intro to Dropped-D Tuning, Part 1
 
Dropped-D tuning is a great tuning for beginning fingerstylists because it gives you two low D notes on which to practice your alternating bass. And it doesn't take much retuning to get into dropped D: just lower your E (sixth) string down a whole step until it's the same note as the open D (fourth) string, but an octave lower. In this lesson, Stevie shows you how to find the melody to "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" while playing a steady alternating bass on a D chord.
