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 Gershwin's Porgy and Bess (It Ain't Necessary So and Summertime). Sandy's arrangement includes the melody and improvisational sections. Fats Waller's Ain't 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, Coleman's March and Snowbird on the Ashbank. Level 2/3. 1 DVD (121 minutes). Tab/music material is on the DVD.

Titles include: It Ain't Necessarily So, Summertime, Ain't Misbehavin', Roslyn Castle, Medley: Farewell to Whiskey/Coleman's March and Snowbird on the Ashbank  DVD is region 0, playable worldwide.
