Martin Carthy Youtube Open Tuning Guitar Tutorial

Recently I’ve posted about a number of British guitar players, todays acoustic guitar video article is about Martin Carthy, a very good open tuning guitarist.  The song is called the Siege of Delhi (not a very nice piece of British history), it is a march and is in the tuning of CGCDGA,  it’s in 2/4 time and uses a lot of alternating thumb work.  Martin plays a lot of traditional music, but his ability to adapt it to open tunings on guitar separates him out from other players, his tunings are highly unusually and are a long way from the standard D,  E , G open tunings.  The first part of the video he plays the tune, then he dissects it.

for another great player on video check out Don Ross
