Strumming In Open D

We will explore strumming techniques, chords, and use of harmonics in open D tuning on the acoustic guitar. You will learn the standard chord shapes used in this tuning to create the unique blend of fretted strings and open strings that produces such a resonant sound, whether played on a 6 string or 12 string guitar. This tuning has figured prominently in the songs of Joni Mitchell, Dan Fogelberg, Ry Cooder, and Leo Kottke. If you’re ready to create new sounds with your guitar by exploring this wonderful open tuning, be sure to tune down (we’ll show you) and join us!
