Open E Tuning

As a teenager I learned to play guitar in a style that has served me well. I have since written a book of lessons on this alternative style of guitar playing. It is without a doubt the easiest and fastest system of learning you will ever discover.

I was also shown Open E tuning as a teenager and I now own 7 guitars and 6 of them are always tuned in open E. 5 of them are 12-strings.

Hi gene here:

finding minor chords is easy. You just flat the third string on the bar chords. There are many various other places to find it on the neck.

I am presently revamping my book on the open E method. There is not much on line about it. Contact me if you want to learn more

I love open tuning and was able to finally play "She Talks to Angels" the right way once I got into Open E.  My only problem with open tuning is trying to figure out how to play minor chords and other chord variations while open-tuned.  Any advice?
