Class Description

Continuing our dive into Joni’s open tuning, we will learn a song in a variant of open C tunings. Please tune in advance to open C Major Add 9, 11 (C-G-D-F-C-E) low to high, and bring a capo. We will be learning the song “Ladies Of the Canyon”. This song is fingerpicked, and played with a capo on the second fret! Please note: strings that are not especially new can break easily when de-tuning or re-tuning, especially the unwound high strings. Be sure to have spares handy!
