This week we brought back our old buddy Jack van Breen and took a look
at an unusual triple-necked instrument (more than just a guitar). Be
sure to check out the video on the Mermer, which happens to be for
sale at Guitar Showcase.

This week’s update also included a few answers to recent questions and
discussions on our Forum, with particular attention to the problem
tuning the B string, and understanding intervals across the strings in
general.

Our Target songs this week featured stuff in the Dropped D family of
tunings, Mr. Soul by Neil Young and A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall by Bob
Dylan. As such, I played through a few other examples of songs and
explorations in Dropped D.

We finished up the week with Student Reviews n Mood For A Day and
April Come She Will, and another episode of the set of lessons that
Beaker took last Spring. This section focused on Outside Woman Blues,
a tune Eric Clapton originally recorded back in his Cream days and
carried over into his Unplugged era.

On a closing note- see what you can come up with in an improvisation
in Dropped D, starting with just playing melody notes on the third
string and keeping a steady bass pattern going.

See you next week,

Neil
