January Blues - composition in Open G minor
« on: January 26, 2013, 11:15:44 AM »
After exploring this tuning for about a week, I came up with a tune that incorporates many of the licks, chords and double stops that I discovered. The fingering could be a bit cleaner and more fluid in spots but anyway, here's where I  am with it. Thanks for listening!

Good on you, Nate!  There are a lot of different sounds to find there, aren't there?  It's exciting to get started working in a new tuning.  Well done.
All best,
Johnm

Cool! :)

Thanks guys and there sure are John! It's kind of of like discovering a  new world and learning to build a house out of new materials.  I like the fact I can't rely on preconceptions of muscle memory to navigate what amounts to a musical wilderness. There are a lot of unusual trails of sounds to trace and extract. I have intentionally avoided deciphering the chords and progressions and instead just listening to the tonal relationships. It's a cool and versatile tuning!
