Folky Fridays #43 – Comparing arrangement options in DADGAD and EADGBE

In this week’s Folky Fridays free online guitar lesson live stream from Folk Friend I will be responding to a request from channel regular Brian who wanted to have a look at the slip jig Fig For A Kiss and examine how arrangement options would differ between standard EADGBE tuning and DADGAD.
