Aloha Adam and welcome to TaroPatch.net! There are dozens and dozens of tunings for slack key guitar. The most common is Taro Patch (hence the name of the site), more commonly known as open G (DGDGBD from low to high). Click on the LEARN button in the blue bar at the top of the page for an extensive list of resources for learning this wonderful style...you won't be sorry! (Ozzie Kotani's book is one of the best places to start.)
P.S. You're not an idiot...idiots are incapable of learning. You're just ignorant (a transitory state that we've all passed through).
Craig My goal is to be able to play as well as people think I can.
