PREFACE TO “THE PERFECT FOURTHS – using the G and B strings
The discrepancy in the ⒼⒷ tuning, frustrating at first, soon proves advantageous, both in the fingering of barrés, and the ability to play chords in different keys; tune the guitar in fourths (E – A – D – G – C – F), try playing a few chords in several keys and you will immediately feel the negative impact of tuning exclusively in fourths.

Welcome on (finger)board! As you are joining the surfing later than others, I would suggest that you take your time and spend about a week (or more) on each set. Publishing the course weekly has the advantage of making it impossible for followers to “jump the gun” (a favourite and highly detrimental activity among guitarists). In my early student days, being given a book or method, I would complete it, regrettably, before the end of week one, having gone through EVERYTHING and absorbed absolutely NOTHING. Then, I was made aware of JW’s edict: “Always learn little over long periods”
. How right he is! It takes a little longer but goes so much further!
