Changing the guitar tuning from EADGBE to DADGAD, this unique set of chords demonstrates a creative way to utilize the tuning. The progression is rooted in Eb, but harmonically travels chromatically in and outside of the key. The strong composition also benefits from finger picking the chord in a similar motif to The Beatles' "Blackbird," while also utilizing percussive techniques with the right hand as well. This piece also makes strong use of open strings throughout chords of different key centers.
