Session One (tuning to A on this page)

Session One includes help getting to "drop D" tuning, and a tune in Drop D tuning for the beginner, that introduces an "independent" right hand thumb.
The second and third songs, The Cuckoo and Candy Man, both in standard tuning, will also work on the right hand thumb and it's independence, but in a completely different way.

First, tune up the guitar!



TUNING to the A tone.
This A tone is provided just as a reference to get in tune with Erics guitar on the MP3s in this site.
You will hear an A note played followed by an A minor chord.  Tune your 5th string to this note and then all other strings relevant to that A note (5th string).  

HERE IS AN MP3 WITH THE TUNING TONES
