We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris:
This week we're closing out Whiskey Before Breakfast in it's proper key of D, but sans capo! Whiskey feels tailor made to be played out of an open C position, but open D makes a lot of sense too, particularly because you have open strings corresponding to all of the different chords in the song (D, the 1; G, the 4; A, the 5; and Em, the 2). If you're not already comfortable playing out of D, I want you to use this week to explore the key and position. This particular tune lays out pretty well on the fingerboard in D. If you get this one quickly, try transposing some of the other songs we've learned to D.
