Classic Open G Tuning

In this tutorial we'll take a break from the key of D, by exploring the classic open G tuning. This is the same as the open A-tuning, only down a whole step. It can also be tuned down a whole step to be an open F-tuning, but for now we'll keep it to G.

As always, the idea is not to adapt everything you already know from standard or any of the other open tunings for that matter. Instead we'll once again meet this new tuning with a beginner's mindset by exploring all the cool sounds that we have easy access to within it. Once we've broken down the basics of it all, we'll put it all to work within the context of a practice tune.
