VIDEO LESSON: Awesome G7 slide tuning for 4-string cigar box guitar

Shane Speal is back with another free cigar box guitar lesson.  He breaks down a cool new tuning in a simple, easy to follow video.  Want to get some killer Hound Dog Taylor sounds out of your four string cigar box guitar?  Tune it up to this G7 tuning:  GDFB (low to high)

Shane shows a simple blues riff to get you started.  Expect to hear this tuning on his upcoming album!

I tried the F7 tuning for awhile, but I'm liking this G7 tuning a lot better. Thanks Shane.

"Thanks Shane"!!!, I normally tend to struggle a bit with 4 string CBG's, but have found this great Blues Riff and Great Sounding Tuning Tutorial easy to play, and will now look at my 4 Stringer's in a different light :-D   

Thanks Shane. Good lesson. I will try it out.
