Whether guitarists are new to open-tunings or already working with them, fingerstyle specialist Jim Goodin offers a progressive look at the popular D-based harp-like tuning. Classical, Celtic, blues, folk, gospel and several original compositions are represented in the 15 notation/tablature arrangements each arranged proportionately to offer beginning, intermediate and advanced fingerstyle players opportunities to grow their technique. Interspersed with the song arrangements are sections featuring major and minor scale studies and popular folk and jazz style chords. Includes a 15-track CD produced at Will Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studio where the book's arrangements were recorded. To round out this robust offering Jim includes thoughts about the origin of DADGAD, the songs, his technique with special how-to features such as one on playing natural and harp style harmonics and recommended listening CD's to expand listening knowledge on this tuning.
