Here's a common three note slant.
So, [SOUND] you're basically just adding
one note to the two note slant.
If you've got this one in C, then you go
up here [SOUND] to the seventh and sixth,
where you can also play the third string,
right there on the fifth fret.
[SOUND] So you've got, actually an F chord
right there, same as these notes.
So you can do the whole three note slant.
So you're going from, you know, fifth fret
on all of them to fifth fret on the third,
sixth fret on the second and seventh fret
on the first string, so
it sounds like this.
So that's going from a one chord to a four
chord right in that same location.
So, you know,
if you've got your four chord here,
up a whole step, will be your five chord,
or a G chord.
Now, once again, it's a little tough to
get these in tune and one other thing
you'll notice sometimes,
you'll hear sort of a,
sort of a sizzle on the highest string,
[SOUND] that's pretty common, and it's
tough to avoid so
don't worry to much about that, if you're
getting that sound.
You just, [SOUND] if you don't play,
if you don't pluck as hard, that sound
will be a little less pronounced, so
you don't have to play these real hard.
So the cool thing about the slant is,
it gives you sort of a pedal steel sound.
Now there's a, one more three note slant
that I'm gonna show you, and
this is really one of my favorites, it's
just a really neat sound.
And it's this one right here.
So, let's go to the tenth fret, the F
And, [SOUND] we've got three different
strings we're gonna use.
Number one, number three, and number five.
So just grab those,
should sound like that.
And what we're gonna do is we're gonna
slant the bar so we've got,
the tenth fret of high string,
the ninth fret of the third string, and
the eighth fret of the fifth string.
So that's a C chord right there, and
then you slide it up and straighten your
And you get the tenth fret, F chord so you
can go from four [SOUND] to one to four,
then slide down to your C chord, and
you get a really nice pedal steel effect.
So that's just a few more slants to add to
your bag of tricks, and give you a few
more different unique sounds.
