Dropped D Guitar: Bach to Blues provides in-depth strategies to help the seasoned beginner to intermediate guitarist gain familiarity with the patterns of dropped D, utilizing a series of hands-on exercises for playing in dropped D tuning. Actual music is provided (no scales here) in the major keys of C, G, D, A, and the minor keys of Dm, Am, and Em. In addition, the guitarist is given a wide-ranging source of music, in a variety of musical styles and keys. There are works written by classical masters, traditional music, and early blues—all arranged for fingerstyle guitar in dropped D tuning in both standard notation and tablature. Background narrative is given on musical periods, composers, and the music to add to the reader’s understanding and interest. All instructional and solo material is played by the author on the accompanying CD.
