Open D Guitar Course

The Open D Tuning Master Course is a video course specifically designed for our audience of guitar enthusiasts by the first and only site dedicated to the study and mastery of Open D Tuning. Here’s how it all came together:

First, I surveyed over one-thousand guitar players just like you to better understand the key pieces you want to learn MOST.

Second, I recruited two excellent teachers: a Grammy shortlisted producer to help you hit the ground running from your very first lessons, as well as a Professional Educator with a degree in music who will take you in depth on the theory and details.

Your knowledge and mastery of open guitar tunings will reach new heights.

If you’re ready to become a better guitarist and musician right now, simply purchase this course and you can access it forever. There is NO subscription and it doesn’t have a time-frame. Learn on your time whenever you want and come back to the videos whenever you need to.

We heard a lot of feedback on what guitarists actually wanted to learn about open d tuning and we created our course around those very topics. With these open d lessons you will learn:

  • How to play Open D Slide Guitar
  • How to fingerpick
  • Open D Chord lessons
  • How to Transpose into Open D Tuning
  • Understanding Open D Scales
  • Guided Open D song lessons
  • & Much more!

I also know from speaking with many of you that your time is important. Between work and family, many of you have no more than a few minutes at a time to spend how you wish. Each lesson is “bite-sized” for those with a busy lifestyle (which is pretty much all of us!). All videos are under 20 minutes and the average length is 14 minutes. These are easily digestible concepts so you don’t get overwhelmed.

By now, I know what you’re thinking:

Why not learn from a local guitar teacher?

First Reason: There are a variety of reasons for choosing to take video-based guitar lessons over personal lessons. First, finding a quality instructor who knows how to convey information properly can be quite a challenge. Finding an instructor like this who is affordable and has availability is even more difficult.

Additionally, very few instructors have much experience with open d tuning. It took some digging before I found two quality instructors from different parts of the country that I felt comfortable working with for this course. You’ll be learning from two pre-vetted professionals.

Second Reason: Consider what your time is worth. As Benjamin Franklin famously said, “time is money”. Do you have time to load up your guitar, drive across town, sit in traffic and burn fuel all for a 30 minute guitar lesson from some stranger you met on Craigslist? Some of you might, but I know from the feedback I’ve gotten from my readers that not all of you do have that luxury.

For some of you this process might even include inclement weather. Personally, after growing up in Montana, I’ve learned that when there’s a blizzard outside NOTHING can get me to leave my house.

You can avoid all of this inconvenience by taking these concise video lessons from the comfort of your own home.

Third Reason: Personal guitar lessons have fixed times, meaning if you want to review something it is going to cost you more time and money. You can’t pause, rewind, or replay what your instructor just said or did without it taking up extra time that you’ve already paid for. If you are stuck on one concept or lesson, it is bound to cost you more time and money to get through that sticking point.

However, you can access the Open D Tuning Master Course anytime you want.  You can replay lessons or parts of lessons. You can come back to lessons to sharpen your memory and skills months after you first watched it. You’re under no time restraint or deadline to finish the course at any specific time, it is yours to access for life.

Fourth Reason: Affordability. The average price of a guitar lesson in the United States is $40 per lesson. By the time you are on your tenth lesson you’ve just spent $400!! That doesn’t include how much you’d spend filling your tank up after driving to lessons.

Instead, you can access all ten videos in the Open D Tuning Master Course whenever you want for less than the average cost of ONE lesson. Imagine if you could find a professional guitar instructor who would teach you for under four dollars a lesson. That’s what I’m offering. You would never find a deal like that anywhere else.
