Theme From Adventures in Paradise
(tabbed as recorded by Jerry in 1961 using the amazing "C Diatonic tuning")

Listen to Jerry Byrd: Theme From Adventures In Paradise

If you are a steel guitar enthusiast like me, you might be surprised to learn just how much Jerry loved and used his newly discovered C Diatonic tuning. From studying Jerry's beautiful heart-warming music over the years, I have really come to appreciate the hard work that Jerry invested into his music and the versatile C Diatonic tuning that he discovered. Wow! Jerry Byrd was truly a gift from God, in my humble opinion! Don't be afraid of the C Diatonic tuning, it is brilliant. The diatonic tuning did feel awkward to me, and I abandoned it for several years, until Jerry's music renewed an interest in my soul to spend some time with the tuning to catch Jerry's vibe for it. Here goes, have fun and make others happy!
