Hey, this is John with Learning Guitar Now. In this little YouTube video, I’m going to give a slide guitar lick that you can play, use the open E tuning in the key of C, so it looks and sounds like this.
So it’s a pretty kind of snaky, the way an old man sounding, It has got some really cool aspects to it. In particular, the beginning of it has really like a kind of Derrick track style when you slide into a note and you slide backwards real fast. So the first part of it, on the B string you slide into the eighth fret on the B string [demonstration]. Now the pre must, the trick to doing this lick is sliding the up and down, up and back really fast, you’re going on eight [demonstration], then eight to six [demonstration], but you don’t want to make it sound like that, you want it [demonstration].
There’s no way to make it play slow and sound like it supposed to sound, so slowly you would sound like this [demonstration], and then you slide in to the eighth fret on the G sharp string and the eighth fret on the E string [demonstration]. Slowly [demonstration], then you get to slide up into the eighth fret on the E string [demonstration], hit the eighth fret on the B string and slide backwards [demonstration].
Now, you slide back up on the eighth fret on the G sharp string [demonstration] and you hit eighth fret on the E string to end the note, the C note key. So the whole lick slowly is this. It just doesn’t sound right if you play it slow, but slowly as this [demonstration]. Regular, [demonstration] that’s a really cool lick and you have to do something else like they call the hop technique. It’s hopping between switch strings when you’re muting back and forth at first, so you’re going to go between the D, E with the E string here [demonstration], to the octave, the high E string, the octave begin the C note [demonstration], same note [demonstration].
Eighth fret on both Es here. You need to back and forth those notes. You’re going to have to mute the strings in between and that’s kind of pretty much what I teach in slide guitar method one open E tuning as well as a standard tuning DVD I put out. And this is kind of the stuff you’re going on with the DVDs. If you want to learn more about muting and raking, and all that, I’m doing much of rakes to mute, and you can check out the DVD full explanation of how to rake all the strings and you precisely hit a note [demonstration]. And just make it sound accurate and precise and, instead of [demonstration] because that’s definitely what happens a lot of time when you start playing the slide guitar, check all those notes we’re ringing out everywhere—you don’t want to.
So anyway this lick slowly once again key of C start it on the B string, eighth fret slide into it [demonstration] and one of the key things you want to do at the beginning is do that up and back type motion [demonstration]. So that’s how it’s supposed to sound. If you play it slowly, [demonstration] it’s like that, but it’s impossible to play slow so you’ll have [demonstration], backwards, up, back [demonstration], just a real kind of Derrick track sounding thing.
But, it’s a really cool lick and if you want the tab to it, just follow the link on the right there and you can click through and check out the tab for this lick.
