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!
see www.daveflynn.com for more info.

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.
@ Jud and Ian, Well getting closer on Old Laughing Lady, might play publicly in the next couple of weeks. Played it with a friend at work and he thought I played it great (still no Neil Young on those beautiful base runs but closing in). So thanks again for the tips you two gave me. Besides thanks I just hate the lack of posting to this topic. I've got a good rep locally as the open tunings guy and just love playing them.
Merry Christmas all! I happened upon this tuning several years ago and posted my first YouTube video using it on Silent Night / Silver Bells. I finished this arrangement on the eve and just got around to posting it on my AG groups today. Anyways, I thought it appropriate for this group. Hope you like it. DGCGBD kicked up a half step on my new custom Yamamoto Talus.
@ Jud and Ian, thanks for the tips. I just downloaded tab, looks great. This is what I think the alternate group should be doing, helping each other to learn new (well in terms of our playing) songs.
