Double C

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Masciale Apr 30. 13 Replies

I keep hearing about the "almighty" double C tuning. What exactly is the attraction? I can play in C, granted without the low bass C, in standard G. And maybe I haven't adjusted enough to it, but…Continue

Converse Thumb Lead

Since The Convergence, I have jumped into the yellow Converse. I'm struggling with the thumb lead. I've stopped trying to cheat the walk around. I've really been working the exercises and using the thumb more when noodling too. Essentially, I'm breaking the Briggs habit. Any other ideas?Also, I need to start the Buckley 48 (Paul suggested that as a good place to start) and teach myself how to read the music. But, that's a different animal.See More
