THE MAGIC OF ORKNEY TUNING LESSON SERIES
Presented by Steve "The Old Man of Hoy" Baughman
ORKNEY TUNING = CGDGCD (You may want to get in tune before starting the lesson.)
Total immersion in this amazing tuning, beginning to advanced. We start by getting in tune and then proceed to making music. I recommend taking THE FIRST FOUR of these lessons in order. After that you'll be a pro and can do whatever you want. I provide chord grids in the videos and tab is available free at my website for other stuff. (If you come up with something cool in Orkney, send it to me and I will post a link at the Orkney Tuning Clearinghouse page at my website.)
The opinions expressed in this series are probably no longer mine, and maybe never were. I just say whatever comes out of my mouth, and often regret it afterwards because it is stupid, if not dumb. Those who may be offended by my silly comments should assume that I have matured beyond them. (Probably a false assumption, but thanks for making it.) As for my facts, they are mostly wrong. Sorry. Also, I have never been to Orkney, or Scotland, or Botswana. Even so, the important stuff, the Orkney Tuning teachings, will change your life if you take the first four lessons to heart. Guaranteed! Or your money back. Most important,... have fun! Most important, never let the prevailing winds decide how you will tune your guitar.
Get tuned up now! CGDGCD
