FREEBIE SELF-JAM GUITAR LESSON for ALL GUITAR SCHOOLS
Since I've been slammed with stuff, , I just videotaped a fun lesson for beginners and intermediates alike, self-jamming, alternating between lead & rhythm, using a "drop D tuning" which opens up great use of open strings while playing rhythm themes and lead alike. I think you'll enjoy it. This is a great tuning which is used for the Neil Young classic, "Cinnamon Girl", which I show most of to you in this lesson.
