[MUSIC]
All right.
Now we're gonna do the same thing with the
Nine Pound Hammer.
Great classic bluegrass tune, we're in the
key of G.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
So again, this kind of a bluesy thing.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
So how am I doing that?
Following that voice.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
The word hammer gets slid into that
G note.
Fifth fret.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Sliding into the B.
Pulling off on the B flat.
B, A, B.
Sliding backwards from the G.
A, B.
Then sliding back into the G,
and up into the E.
Really vocalizing that melody.
[MUSIC]
And sliding into the B.
[MUSIC]
Let's try it with the guitar once.
[SOUND] Key of G.
I think we're at 60.
A one, two, a one.
[MUSIC]
And up to the high D note.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
You do it now.
I'll play rhythm.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Slide into that.
