This is a very challenging technique and style that is the next natural step from last week's lesson, Harmonizing With Open Strings. This again, is a style I picked up largely from my late friend, the great Danny Gatton, and if you spend any time listening to some of his improvisations you’ll be sure to pick up on some of these banjo-like runs.

Open G is one very flexible tuning, and the possibilities for slide players are endless. The open positions offer a great deal of open harmonies for that very Dobro-like effect so often employed by players such as Ry Cooder, Lowell George, Bonnie Raitt and Lee Roy Parnell. They also, however, require a good deal of slide accuracy.

The positions of open G tuning are surely unique, but one of the best uses of this tuning are the endless open and closed position harmonies that can be created. A good right hand is really important here, especially for the “splits”, and the muting that must occur if you want a clean slide sound.

This is a technique I’ve long been known for, and I sort of picked it up by listening to the late, great Clarence White. When I was just a kid loving and learning from White’s playing on the Byrds’ records, I was unaware that he had invented the B-string “bender,” which is a mechanical string-pulling device that had been built into his guitar. Instead, I started emulating this effect by bending the strings with my fingers, while still recreating the mechanical pedal steel-like sound.

This style is equally suited to electric as well as acoustic playing, but clearly owes its origins to the acoustic players of early country music. We will work strongly on the right-hand patterns that help to establish the foundation needed to execute these licks properly, and it’s a great workout in “jumping” strings in a flatpick style.
