You've undoubtedly found yourself with a bit of free time amid the recent pandemic. Instead of binging on TV shows or scrolling through endless walls of social media, why not take this opportunity to cultivate a new hobby, like learning how to play guitar, bass, or even ukulele? To get you started, our friends at Fret Zealot are giving away three LED guitar lesson systems that will help you master the guitar and all of its intricacies.
I've been playing guitar for over half of my life at this point, and I still love to try new things - new pickups, new amps, new strings, new picks...you get the idea. Of all the things to try out on a guitar, one of the easiest is a new tuning. Assuming you have a set of strings that can handle the tuning you're looking to check out (I wouldn't, for example, suggest trying out Drop A with a 10-46 set), it's pretty much just a task of tuning up the guitar and seeing how you feel about it before actually committing and doing a full setup.
