Merritt guitar workshop concept - long (33) RE: guitar workshop concept - long 12 May 03

Yeah, I've got those liner notes too. As noted above, am offering He'eia as an introductory sample of what one can do with Open D vs. teaching the tune. That said, am pretty well convinced by comments above and early guinea pig responses that it's better to let the students dig right in at the beginning of the session.

He'eia, with it's simple melody and 1/5 chord structure, works nicely in Open D, dropped D, dropped A, open G. Slightly different flavors on each. I've never tried C Mauna Loa tuning, but, whatever flavor Kamakahi's using sounds nice to me.
