Hi, this is Dave Anderson with Onlinelessonvideos.com. Today we’re going to talk about backing up the pedal steel with the band or behind the singer. So let's get started.
Okay, so let's take the backing track that’s in four-four time, the slower version and we’re just going to give you some different examples of what to play as the chords change. Unfortunately you’re not going to hear me sing on this you're just going to hear the chord changes but you'll get an idea of where you want to play within the chords and kind of how to stay up with the way of other people in the band.
So, let's take this as some of the examples of what I just did. I mainly stayed in two positions stand on the third fret and then move into that six with the A and left note leverage. Try not to play too busy starting from there and then we’ve go in to that sixth fret between the first beat and the third beat. And then with land back on to my fourth change which would be my C chord right on the one B. That’s kind of the key if you want to come as slow in or work in when the chords happen on the changes so that’s right on the first beat of each measure.
To just send back down into the one chord or the G chord I was playing from the C into a minor, okay. So let's just go in down so that’s going from C to B minor and that’s just left knee letter N or left knee level right. So that’s on the same fret as the C.
Left knee level and I pull that to the first fret which would be my minor and then back to G.
So, that would D send back in other chord, you know.
And while I'm demo like playing two strings I might be playing on the fourth and the fifth, and the fifth and the sixth. I want to get too busy I want to leave space and I want to leave room for the singer to sing.
For the solos to play, I don’t want to get on top and then we’re getting front of that. I think that’s probably the biggest part of the lesson is hold back the lesser is smaller. But you’re playing a lot your distracting from what's going on. You want to imbalance the chord and just kind of slow we move in to each change and whether we backup what's going on the band.
