Tuesday Minor: Bottle, Knives and Steel
Level Beginner to Advanced.
From Blind Willie and Robert Johnson to Bukka White, Elmore James and Duane Allmann, the mysteries and majesty of playing slide guitar in Open D tuning have seduced many a player. In this class, we’ll look at the grittier side of this tuning and how the old masters made it sound like sometimes there were two or three players going at once. We’ll look at how to slap and snap the strings with the right hand like on Bukka on Aberdeen Mississippi Blues and examine how to chord and slide at the same time. Bring your slide weapon of choice!
