    ALTERNATE TUNINGS WORKSHOP: Use tunings to expand the guitar’s tonal palette, create fuller sounds through open-string voicings, and enable modern fingerstyle techniques (two-handed tapping and harmonic slaps) that are difficult to achieve in standard tuning. Tunings include Drop-D, DADGAD, D-Minor, G-Minor, Gsus4 (“Orkney”), and others. Students will learn how to apply their existing knowledge of the fingerboard to alternate tunings, with specific exercises and several of Teja’s original compositions and arrangements.
