[MUSIC]
Okay, on that song,
I did a couple little different things,
I did a lick there going from the A.
I did,
[MUSIC]
So what that was,
that was a little A six there,
[MUSIC]
So that's like your A shape.
[MUSIC]
And almost like an F sharp minor shape
[MUSIC]
which is the sixth of A so.
[MUSIC]
So that's like
[MUSIC]
A7.
[MUSIC]
And then A 6
[MUSIC]
down to the one, so
[MUSIC]
I'm just taking these three notes and
I'm striking them, I'm pinching them
with all three things here in my pick,
and these two fingers.
So
[MUSIC]
So that's
[MUSIC]
these three.
[MUSIC]
Like a little F sharp minor.
[MUSIC]
To E minor
shape, so
[MUSIC]
To D.
So I think I hit another bend here too.
When I went to the G
[MUSIC]
That's a,
[MUSIC]
So a,
[MUSIC]
And you might notice I'm doing
a few of these little things that
are like [COUGH] a little kind of,
I'm kind of like hiccuping
a little on the string.
Where I'm going like
[MUSIC]
I'm really just, kind of,
man, you've got to think of
this as like, kind of like,
the groove of the song,
like your shoulders are almost doing this,
where you're like going
[MUSIC].
Now that was a little sloppy, but
it's almost being sloppy but not.
So you're kinda
[MUSIC]
What I'm doing there is I'm kind of.
[MUSIC]
I'm just shortening the length of these
notes by going
[MUSIC].
So I'm kind of like not pressing
down all the way when I do
[MUSIC].
So that turns it into
[MUSIC].
So what I'm doing is I'm hitting the note.
[MUSIC]
And
I'm really just releasing it really fast,
[MUSIC]
so it has this.
[MUSIC]
It's got this real staccato sound so.
[MUSIC]
And then the other finger
the middle finger that I'm
using to pedal here,
[MUSIC]
It's mainly just an accent.
[MUSIC]
So that's
a little style too.
[MUSIC]
So
[MUSIC]
So, I'm just hitting these
keynotes to make this kind of funky.
[MUSIC]
So that's a little technique too and
I can elaborate on that
some with you too but
we're starting to cover
a lot of stuff here.
So let's move from Mama Tried
to Lonesome On'ry and Mean.
And we'll do a couple other
little ideas here, and
then we'll move on to some other stuff.
All right, thanks a lot.
[MUSIC]
