Unique Tuning 1 – 2 fingered Chords

Email Marketing by Benchmark

Unique Tuning 1 – 2 fingered Chords is a series based on a song called “Valley View” which uses a unique tuning that makes it possible to play a sophisticated sounding song much easier by using 1 and 2 fingered chords.

The focus of the lessons (yes, there’s more to come!) can therefore become right hand technique (specifically a good workout for the thumb.


Lessons go as follow:

1. This Lesson – Intro into this Fingerpicking pattern, tab, sheet music and Tux guitar file for beginners (or whatever speed you want to move at). AND… the sheet music for lesson 2 (in case you want to move ahead quickly.

Big thanks and a big “thumbs up” to YouTube for providing anyone the opportunity to share with everyone.

Happy pickin’ !!  Bob

      Hi Mary, great to hear from you and yes,,, I am way overdue for more lessons. I’m working on a new website where all this signup stuff and getting material to my group will be much easier (in other words, moving to the 21st century.. ha ha..
      I haven’t been feeling so good lately and have been on “the doctor tour” but so far, it’s just a bunch of stuff that I can correct myself. I’m hoping to be back asap in the first of the new year.
