Buster B. Jones Teaches Back Porch Boogie
Okay, that was skippy. Now, I think you probably noticed that it was not in standard tuning. It was in an open A-minor tuning. So, let’s go ahead and get our guitars tuned. What you need to do now is take your first E string and we’re going to take it down a whole step. Okay, we’re going take the B string down a half step. Now, the way to check that is to put your first finger on the first fret there and make it sound like an A chord.
Now, let’s take the five and sixth down the whole step as well. And you just go across it and it should sound like a G-minor. Just a couple of things about skippy, you’ll see that obviously when you’re playing on an open tuning, you can use just a straight bar like that. But what I'm doing is manipulating it obviously a little bit more than that. For instance, in the beginning, you’re hearing. Now, if we take a look at the chord here with the left hand, it’s basically a one note chord. Then you had the melody. Now, concentrating on the left hand, here’s the next chord. The second time, throw it out like this. And here’s your big horn, moving up a bar.
Now, that’s really about it, the chords and everything that I use in that song skippy, there is no big secret. You have to check the tab but I think you’ll see that they’re all pretty academic. The big trick behind playing this song is playing it with enough aggression and fire and energy. So, the thing I think we should now is just jump in, head, hands and feet and see what happens. Let’s split screen and I'll play it for you slow.
