Getting Started

On this website I will be focusing mostly on accompanying fiddle tunes. For accompanying fiddle tunes, I tune my tenor guitar GDAD, low to high, similar to an octave mandolin, except with the high E string tuned down to a D. This is also how some bouzouki players tune their instruments.

If you are new to the tenor guitar or want information on buying an instrument, check out the page on Buying a Tenor Guitar.

If you already have a tenor guitar tuned GDAD, head over to the GDAD Lessons Page.

If you are interested in learning about tenor guitars tuned CGDA, check out the
