@ Guy, sorry no TAB or sheet music done, the arrangements are all in my head!
@ Ian, yes churches are great for playing solo guitar in, they let the guitar ring out more than any other kind of venue. Makes it seem a lot louder than it is!
hi all, I'm new here. I only play in tunings other than 'standard', it suites my musical sense.
Heres a link to what I play
Great job Dave! I've thought we must get extra inspiration from playing in a Church, I'd love to have the opportunity!
@ Dave, do you have tablature for songs like the one you posted?
Thanks Guy. :-)
@ Dave, very nicely done.
I've just joined the forum.
I hope some of you might enjoy listening to my music
Here's a clip of me playing an Irish reel live in Dublin using DGDGAE tuning, I call it fiddle tuning because that's what it's based on!

Check out YouTube and plug in "Kyser K-Lever" to the search box. You will find a number of demo videos that you might just like. Here are some of them.
If any of you will be at the Winter NAMM Show this week please come by the Kyser booth and say "hi". We will have plenty of K-Levers there. thanks, Greg
Guy ... It seems to go over well at open-mike for me. I have a limited ability to hammer on/pull off like Neil, but it still sounds impressive in that double drop "D" tuning.
Old Laughing Lady is a great tune, I think the trick with it is to keep it light and personal, like you're just playing in your practice space all by yourself. A similar tune in the same tuning,albiet a bit depressing, is "Don't Let It Bring You Down". This can be found on the HyperRust website as well.
