Lesson notes

War Of Man is an acoustic masterpiece by Neil Young that first appeared on his 1992 album Harvest Moon. It is played in Double Dropped D Tuning, like many of his songs, and features his signature style of strumming with his fingers, sometimes focusing on a couple strings, as well as picking out clean, single note melodies. This can be done just as easily with a pick, and that is how it is played in the lesson.

The lesson covers the techniques and chord positions with a little talk about the advantages of the tuning.
