Well, we've been talking about some
minor keys and minor scales in some
previous lessons.
Now I wanna give you another song that's
in a minor key,
the song Wayfaring Stranger.
It's in the key of B minor.
[MUSIC]
It's a great key on the Dobro to play
a minor, because you've got this minor
chord [SOUND] that
you can play just [SOUND] playing the 4
4th fret [SOUND] and
leaving the high 2 strings open.
[MUSIC]
Get a really nice B minor chord there.
So this is gonna be a good exercise to
learn inflection and
to learn how to let notes sustain cleanly
and to play in this minor key.
So a lot of this is gonna be the B minor
pentatonic scale.
So, lets just go over that real quick.
So, that's gonna start on the low 6th
string, [SOUND] 4th fret.
There's your B, so.
[MUSIC]
That's the B
minor pentatonic.
[MUSIC]
So that right there is
really the basis for most of this song.
There will probably be a few chromatic
notes.
At one point, it plays these notes in
succession.
[MUSIC]
So going from this E, F, F-sharp.
[MUSIC]
But if you have a good grasp on the B
minor pentatonic, you're gonna do fine
with this song.
So I'll go ahead and play it one time
slowly with a backing track,
so you can get an idea of how it sounds.
[MUSIC]
