Further Adventures in DADGAD (Beginning-Intermediate)

taught by Sandy Shalk

Arranging tunes in DADGAD lends itself to fresh approaches to tunes we have come to love. The arrangements of its pioneer, British guitarist Davy Graham, make clear that playing in DADGAD is a way of making the familiar seem new. There is a rich heritage of tunes arranged in this special tuning, but there is still much territory to be explored for the fingerstyle guitarist.

In this lesson, Sandy Shalk teaches an eclectic mix of tunes arranged in DADGAD including jazz, Celtic and fiddle tunes. There are two tunes from the legendary George Gershwins Porgy and Bess (It Aint Necessary So and Summertime). Sandys arrangement includes the melody and improvisational sections. Fats Wallers Aint Misbehavin was voted one of the 365 songs of last century. Fats claimed the song was written while "lodging" in alimony prison, and that is why he was not "misbehaving."

Over the last 20 years DADGAD has been widely used in arranging American fiddle tunes and Celtic melodies. Sandy teaches four examples with Roslyn Castle, Farewell to Whiskey, Colemans March and Snowbird on the Ashbank. Level 2/3. 1 DVD (121 minutes). Tab/music material is on the DVD.
