Whether guitarists are new to open-tunings or already working with them, fingerstyle specialist Jim Goodin offers a progressive look at the popular D-based harp-like tuning. Classical, Celtic, blues, folk, gospel and several original compositions are represented in the 15 notation/tablature arrangements each arranged proportionately to offer beginning, intermediate and advanced fingerstyle players opportunities to grow their technique. Interspersed with the song arrangements are sections featuring major and minor scale studies and popular folk and jazz style chords. Includes a 15-track CD produced at Will Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studio where the book's arrangements were recorded. To round out this robust offering Jim includes thoughts about the origin of DADGAD, the songs, his technique with special how-to features such as one on playing natural and harp style harmonics and recommended listening CD's to expand listening knowledge on this tuning.

After pursuing a variety of musical directions including woodwinds during his youth and college years, Jim Goodin settled on the guitar as a solo instrument and compositional tool. In the early 80s he studied classical technique but after a short time went his own way, developing new techniques and working in alternative tunings. During the early 90s Jim studied composition with Frederick Hand and, briefly, fingerstyle technique and arranging with El McMeen. Originally a native of Arkansas, Jim moved to New York in 1991 and now performs throughout New England. In the late 80s, Jim became engrossed with Celtic music, particularly the works of the 17th 18th century Irish harpist, Turlough O'Carolan. Working with O'Carolan's melodies strongly influenced Jim's own compositional style but his more recent compositions also reflect the influence of Michael Hedges, Will Ackerman, Alex de Grassi, and Ralph Towner. The imprints of composer Steve Reich and jazz pianist Bill Evans can also be felt in Jim's music. Jim endorses Headway Electronics Partners of London and is a clinician for GHS Strings.
