LET'S MANGLE THE OPEN G TUNING AGAIN!!! Let's retune just one string and make the fretboard FRESH. This is a G major tuning, a tin pan alley version of the blues tuning. If you're in Open G, simply retune the middle string down to a B. That's it!
Check out the Susquehanna Folk Festival at http://julyfolkfest.org . I'll be performing there on Saturday, July 28.
