Merritt guitar workshop concept - long (33) RE: guitar workshop concept - long 09 May 03

You guys are great! I'm really learning a lot here!

Mark, bouncing off your "Aloha," one of the tunes I thought I'd pick for them to introduce the musical universes found in Open D tuning is He'eia. With only 2 chords (the way I play it) it's as simple or complex as you want it to be. I want to convey the idea that altho' there's value to eventually learning and using different tunings, every basic tuning contains worlds of pleasure and interpretation.

Oh, and the "long" reference was to my opening piece for the thread; it goes on for a while.
