#4 Play Acoustic Guitar In DADGAD Tuning
Maybe you’ve wanted to look into DADGAD tuning but felt it was this elusive thing, or maybe you’ve never heard of it at all! Well, this lesson will help you not only get started but also playing in this tuning today!
#3 What’s On the Turntable This Week?
This week’s featured acoustic artist is Eric Skye, who comes recommended to us by Acoustic Tuesday listener Trent S. from La Crete, Alberta, Canada. Trent says, “What I love? Everything. I love his fingerpicking, and I especially love his Flatpicking. His album June Apple is absolutely fantastic, and it’s not lighting fast so it’s awesome to sit down and play along with. I just recently did a lesson with him, he’s super kind and explains things so well. And he’s got 50 fiddle tunes up on his website in standard notation for the true music geek!”

#2 Eric Bibb’s Favorite Guitar
I want you to think back (AT Episode 66), where we featured an artist named Eric Bibb. Eric is a fantastic blues player and a torch bearer of the folk tradition. He had just released an album called Global Griot. We heard from Eric right after our feature so we of course hit him up for his responses to three burning questions we had for him. Check out his video response!

#1 Harlem Street Singer Review
This movie is something I think everyone should watch. This is the story of Reverend Gary Davis, from when he grew up in the deep south. He was an integral part of the 1960s folk scene. You’ll agree it’s a must watch documentary.
