4 Tips for Using Open G Tuning with a Guitar

Here are a few tips for playing and practicing when using open G guitar tuning.

1. Learn rolls. Open G tuning sounds best when it's used with fingerstyle picking, so learn a few rolls (patterns of fingerstyle picking)--you can use classic banjo rolls. Do a search on Google for banjo rolls, and learn the patterns. Practice them at increasing tempos to build up your speed and sense of rhythm. You'll hear the kind of fast, rhythmic sound that banjos are known for if you're doing it right, but the tones of the guitar give it a warmer feeling. Rolls are great for use with bluegrass and country music.

2. Gradually add chords. As you may have noticed, playing a guitar in open G tuning means that you'll have to learn a whole new set of chords. A chart of some of those chords is available here. Once you get a roll or two down, start adding in the chords one at a time, and like you'd done when you'd learned chords on standard tuning guitar, try to move between them quickly without breaking up the roll that you're doing. Learning as many chords as you can helps you become more versatile on the open G guitar, but don't add more than about three a day, or they won't be in your long term memory.

3. Don't ignore the lower strings. It's easy to get into the habit of just picking the top few strings of the guitar, but make sure you give equal time to the lower strings, as they'll build bass lines for the songs you play alone, and it'll balance out the sound of the instrument more. Be aware that open G tuning gives you three D strings, so it's always good to be doing something interesting on at least one of them.

4. There's no shame in a capo. It's called open G tuning for a reason; it gives you a lot of power when playing in G major. You've probably been able to see in your own practice how many chordal combinations you've got at your disposal. By capoing up, you can keep those possibilities. Above all, remember to explore, make an effort to know the notes you're playing, and have fun.
