First, I'll show you how an altered tuning sequence will look to a lesson user (and what said user must be told about the differences in musical examples between an altered tuning lesson and a standard one), and then I'll show you how to put one of these babies together.

To hear the sequence below, don't push the 'play' button! At least not yet! You'll get a mess... Here's what to do:

Do you see where it says:
For playback, include: [] Main Sequence [] 2nd Sequence
Uncheck the "Main Sequence" box. Then push play.

Another important thing to remember to tell your lesson readers is that with these altered tuning lessons, the composer does NOT display the proper tuning on the left (the sideways EADGBE). Make sure to explain the tuning you're using (preferably with the "Insert a Chord Chart" feature) and that it doesn't match the one shown, even if it's something as common as open G, since new players may (and probably will) be unfamiliar with the standard tuning, let alone alternate ones.

That's it. That's all there's to it on the user end. Just make sure to tell your lesson readers not to ask questions about the method so as to avoid headaches =). Or just send 'em on this way.

Alright, so now that we've got the user end covered, let me explain how to actually create one of these. It's not that tough, but it ain't that easy either, and it takes a bit of patience.

A Noodle in Open A

NOTE: Turn off the Main Sequence before hitting 'play'!
