DADGAD tuning is a modal tuning closely related to the “Mountain Modal” or “Sawmill” tuning used on banjo for Appalachian tunes. In this workshop, Al will demonstrate his unique approach to playing this compelling style of music on fingerstyle acoustic guitar. Attendees will learn some valuable techniques that will allow them to take the most advantage of the tuning in a couple of key positions and even get close to the sound of a “clawhammer” banjo.
