So right now, we're gonna do this little
drop D tuning lick that Junior Brown I
heard him do probably for the first time.
And it's just gonna be a little tune
using your tuning key on the fly,
your low E string.
And this is totally like a bar room trick.
I mean this is like kinda a crowd pleaser.
And it's something that people
love when you do it but
it is kind of a gimmicky kind of lick.
But I just want to run over it real quick
because it is part of some things you can
do on some of these songs, especially
like a good old honky-tonk song.
So if you're in A,
and this is where this lick works
the best.
And I'll try to get this
as in tune as I can here.
So if you're
in A,
and that wasn't
perfect but
that gives you
the idea.
And what you're doing is,
when you go down to the four chord,
you go right down to that D.
You can go through the whole chord.
You can go down to D,
and try to get it as in tune as possible.
I mean that's really
kind of a goofy lick but
that's just part of,
part of some of
the tricks that you can do.
