Re: Question about Easy 3rd / Do it!

From Seydel's website (note, in German, the B natural note is written as H, and B flat is written as B): Easy 3rd / Do it! (by Dale King) This tuning is the ideal alternative to play pieces in minor keys, because you can easily play pieces in the third position without the need of intonating the dou...
