Got Alternate Tuning?

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I specifically chose this DVD because I know that Chris Proctor is one of the few people who looks at the 12-string as a unique instrument. By this I mean that he goes beyond the approach of playing "songs that sound good on a 12-string" to look at techniques that you can only use on a 12-string guitar.
My disappointment is that the DVD focuses only on material with alternate tunings. As a player who has started later in life, I just don't have the time or energy to focus on anything but standard tuning. Unfortunately this leaves little concrete material to make use of.
For players who are comfortable with alternate tunings and own a 12-string, this is your DVD!"
