On that,
some very similar stuff
that I've been doing.
I mean, we're getting to where we're
kind of playing about it as advanced as
we can on some of this stuff.
Throwing in about everything and
the kitchen sink.
So what I'm doing here is
when I go to the four chord,
I'm playing over this G9 chord.
Which is I see this part of that
chord being a D minor, because of this.
So when I'm playing over this chord,
I'm going into this position.
And what that is,
is I'm playing out of the G7 shape.
But I'm thinking this nine on top and
then resolving to my major
third out of this chord.
So this whole time I'm thinking G9,
G7 here and
then D minor and their resolving.
So the position,
the lick i'm playing is.
that's all over G.
right to the D minor.
So when I go to A9.
I'm playing right out
of that scale that we did,
the flat seven major scale.
But resolving to that A.
So when I go to that A chord.
So I'm kind of getting away from the song
that we just played,
Lonesome, On'ry and Mean.
I went to the one, four, five.
But [COUGH] with that intro lick
that we played, I came in in C.
So that song goes C,
[SOUND] G diamond, D.
So what I did is while this
band is doing the diamonds,
[SOUND] I did this little lick
that we have come up with before.
So then basically,
we're playing blues stuff over that.
Now I did do another
lick here where I went.
Where that is.
And then
I did another one.
I forgot to show you that bend earlier.
But so this one is right out
of the E grip right here.
And then this is pretty hard.
I'm bending
up on the C note all the way up to.
Up to that [SOUND] and then that
adds a little, that's a seven there.
And then out of this D7 shape,
I'm bending this A.
To get that sound,
I'm bending up to that A.
So that's.
you gotta use all the muscle you can for
But you can do it there.
And then you can do it here
in G when you go to the four cord.
So that's a great little bend for
that too.
There's other bend I'm doing,
I'm bending also out of this D7 shape.
I'm bending down.
So I'm prebending the C to the D.
that lick is.
steel guitar
bend there.
There was a few concepts for that song.
Now, we're gonna move on
to some other lessons here.
