About This Class

Hey Rock Star!

In this class I teach you the basics of "drop d" tuning. First I show you how to tune to drop d and then we learn how to make your own riffs. After this class you will have lots of ides and a great foundation for the tuning.

This is a good primer for drop D tuning. I have never used this so it was good to get some pointers. To get the drop D tuning, you should lower your 6th string to match the 4th string-the D string. That was not mentioned. It would have been nice to have had a short acoustic demo too.

In his words, he describes his joy “Teaching guitar is more than sharing experience for me. I feel like I´m really refining my skills as a teacher, but more than that, there is no greater joy than seeing my students’ faces light up after playing something that they thought was never possible for them”.
