Watch the Melody in Open Tunings online guitar lesson by Peppino D'Agostino from Acoustic Poetica

In this segment you will hear and see the difference between a melody in the upper register and chords played in standard tuning and the same musical phrase played using an open tuning. The open tuning is: C#G#EF#BD# and is the same one that I use on my original composition "Nine White Kites" which I'll perform later in the course. Having lowered the sixth and fifth string respectively to C# and G# adds harmonic richness to the bass arpeggio and a different flavor due to new chord voicings.
