Well now we're gonna apply those harmonics
to a song that is a very cool little song.
It's called Silver Bells and I'm assuming
the Silver Bells refer to the little
harmonics we're gonna use here in this
But it also is a nice application of some
hammer-ons and pull-offs.
So the main part of the melody is the
hammer-ons and pull-offs right here.
I'll show you what the first phrase sounds
So that's the first little bit it's
a little tricky, it's a little hammer-on a
I'll try it one more time slow.
And then the next
part is my favorite part.
Sort of a little answer to that melody and
harmonics and the harmonics are 5th fret,
[SOUND] 7th fret high string, [SOUND] 5th
fret high string.
7th fret, 2nd string.
[SOUND] 2nd fret high string.
[SOUND] 7th fret, 3rd strings.
So, [SOUND] and then.
[SOUND] That's how it ends.
That's the whole phrase.
I could go through it one more time slow
the whole A part.
Now with this tune, it's a little
different than some,
anything we've tried before.
It actually modulates for the B part.
So the B part actually modulates to the
key of C.
So the whole A part is in the key of G and
the whole B part is in the key of C.
So one easy way to do that is [SOUND] when
we end up here on the 12th fret,
we just go down and play a flat 7 chord, a
A G7 chord, I should say.
By doing this little chromatic lick down
to the 10th fret.
[SOUND] And what's that's going to do is
lead us to some notes in the C chord.
[SOUND] So the way the whole thing happens
to modulate, it sounds like this.
here we are at the C.
So that's the first phrase of the B part
right there in C using a C chord and an F
chord up on the 10th fret.
And it's really just a role the way I play
it, so of Dobro afied version if you will.
So the first role is.
It's one forward roll.
And then a reverse roll and
then [SOUND] a 4 string forward roll on
the 10th fret.
And that little lick,
which is pretty nice.
Back to the C and
then the last chord would be a G
[SOUND] with a little reverse roll.
And once again.
And then to modulate
back to the G, you do this.
You take it from a C chromatically up to
a D, which is the 5 chord of G.
It's gonna lead you back there.
then we're back to the original melody.
So we'll go ahead and
try this with the back-end tracks.
