Lesson notes

In this lesson, we’ll explore a way to tune your guitar known as Nashville Tuning, or “High Strung.” A Nashville-tuned guitar can be played just like standard tuning, but because the lower four strings are tuned an octave higher, the tuning creates a unique sound. We’ll explore the tuning, strings needed, history, and look at example applications, including doubling rhythm guitar parts and playing a fingerstyle arrangement of Scarborough Faire.
