Watch the E m11 Tuning online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from Essentials: Open Tunings

Even though this etude employs a really strong, full strumming pattern, tune in with your ears and make sure you can follow the melody line that we're picking out on the 4th and 5th strings. Feel free to embellish that melody any way you like with hammer ons, pull offs or simply by adding notes that are within your reach. Again - one of the joys of open tunings is that we can often find many color tones or additional melody notes within our reach and it's just a matter of picking them out and emphasizing them.
