NEW CIGAR BOX GUITAR LESSON: GBG Tuning - Further Adventures in Mangling the Open G

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!
