Steve Baughman - An Open Tunings Christmas for Guitar
Steve Baughman An Open Tunings Christmas for Guitar PDF. This is the first book ever of Yuletide music arranged for solo guitar in various "open" or "altered" tunings. In this genre of guitar music, the instrument is re-tuned to create a voicing ideally suited for each particular song. This book contains ten Christmas tunes and covers five open tunings that give voice and life to the music of the Yuletide season. The arrangements include old standards, like Silent Night and Joy to the World, and a sprinkling of more obscure tunes, such as Am Weinachts Baum die Lichte brennen. All are beautiful, time-tested songs.
There is a mix of familiar and lesser known international tunes, which are not only set in an array of different tunings, but stylistically have different approaches; they don't all sound the same.
The CD that accompanies the book will be enjoyed for the beautiful renditions of seasonal music, in addition to its instructional value.
