Tunings that differ from the standard EADGBE pattern have along and honorable history. From the pioneer blues-men to Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Bert Jansch, creative guitarists using unconventional tunings have been able to create unusual sounds, difficult or impossible in standard tuning.

Until recently it was assumed that standard tuning was best for the beginner. But as Stefan Grossman points out, there are many other tunings which have special advantages: for example, there are open tunings, in which the strings are tuned to produce a complete chord, making the work of the left hand significantly easier. There are many that can immediately help the beginner feel more at home with the instrument.

Whether you are an all-thumbs beginner, or an advanced guitarist looking for new scope, in The Book of Tunings Stefan Grossman shows you how to make the guitar’s adaptability work for you. The tunings are presented with right-hand fingerpicking techniques, and the songs are a wide assortment of blues, ballads, bottleneck dance tunes, and medieval instrumentals.

The book includes a discography and bibliography, and a special theory section by Larry Sandberg.
