  • Country blues guitar players have often favored open tunings, as they are an easy way to achieve a rich, full sound with minimal effort. Esteemed musician and teacher Stefan Grossman has created a lesson that explores this approach of tuning to a full chord, addressing the most popular country blues tunings: the open G, or Spanish tuning, and the Open D, or Vestapol tuning. He also covers the Crossnote tuning, in which the guitar is tuned to an open Em chord. This technique was espoused by Delta guitarists such as Skip James and Bukka White. Seven great tunes are demonstrated using a split-screen presentation that allows students to observe both hands up close simultaneously. Grossman explains bottleneck techniques as well as Delta blues ideas applied to open G tuning in a full exploration of the material. The song list includes: "Vestapol," "John Henry," and "If You Don't Want Me" in open D tuning; "Working On The New Railroad," and "Special Rider Blues" in open G tuning; and "Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues," and "I'm So Glad" in Crossnote tuning.
