A thorough guide to the most widely used tunings! Tunes and exercises that illustrate each technique are written in tab and music and played on the CD featuring 50 demo tracks. These essential fretboard patterns are roadmaps that all guitarists need to know and use to play in alternate tunings. Learn to: solo and play backup in Drop D, Open G, Open D, DADGAD, Open A, and Open E tunings; play a variety of lead guitar styles and songs (acoustic and electric) in open tunings; play chords and progressions anywhere on the fretboard, in all keys, in many tunings; and more. Each chapter presents a fretboard pattern and shows how to use it, along with playing tips and guitar insights. An absolute beginner can follow the diagrams and instruction from the beginning. Intermediate and advanced players can use the chapters non-sequentially to increase their understanding of the guitar.
