Started this discussion. Last reply by Don Stachovak Mar 26. 3 Replies

Started this discussion. Last reply by the anonymous pick Feb 14, 2017. 2 Replies

Don Stachovak replied to Jim Saraceno's discussion Keith Richards Plays in open G....
"I love 4 string CGB tuned GDGB. You get the full open G experience on 4 strings. Also, many RL Burnside tunes work in that tuning. Plus, just don't touch the D and you've got some Seasick Steve going on."

Grandpa replied to Don Stachovak's discussion Playing standing up.
"Yes. And it is weirdly different...different pressure, different hand position, different method. I suck, but less than before. It's like all the rest....practice, practice, practice. Keep going, get better. Maybe even good!"
