telling you baby I'm through with you hi baby just because baby just<font color="#E5E5E5"> because</font> I baby gently <font color="#CCCCCC">I like</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to talk about intros and endings</font> and country songs because there's

there's that standard intro that everyone uses I guess when you did the luxury liner record with<font color="#E5E5E5"> Emmylou Harris</font> the tune my<font color="#CCCCCC"> San Antonio's has that real</font> stock country intro maybe you could show us how that one<font color="#E5E5E5"> more</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> time I actually</font>

played that with it with<font color="#E5E5E5"> the steal oh</font> really<font color="#E5E5E5"> its twin with the steel 341 yeah</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">there as you say it's kind of a stock</font> kind of intro yeah but it's neat because um when people who haven't played <font color="#E5E5E5">country when they find themselves on a</font>

country kick it would be all to do stuff like that are there<font color="#E5E5E5"> are there any other</font> tunes that you could<font color="#E5E5E5"> think of that we</font> have something<font color="#CCCCCC"> like</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that huh</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> well I</font> don't<font color="#CCCCCC"> I can't think</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of any that have</font> that an identifier identifiable<font color="#E5E5E5"> in troll</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">area but you could fit that kind of</font> intro to you know to any kind any secret true that's good let's flush mount one more <font color="#E5E5E5">okay that's the same okay beautimous</font> it's his variations on the scene they're

all good you<font color="#CCCCCC"> know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it's neater it's need</font> to do those great variations because I <font color="#E5E5E5">figured that the more people study the</font> different<font color="#CCCCCC"> variations where they can</font> combine them and<font color="#E5E5E5"> then come up with</font> something of their own let's do one more

maybe you can do it somewhere up in the neck two three so maybe<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can also show us some</font> endings because there's like these classic cadenza riffs<font color="#CCCCCC"> ooh especially in</font> E and Angie that well yeah there's like

<font color="#E5E5E5">I know there's like this real great pull</font> off<font color="#CCCCCC"> flick that you do and get that kind</font> of thing yeah there's when you doin G where you use<font color="#E5E5E5"> Williams open that's great</font> yes I<font color="#E5E5E5"> would that fit in the context of a</font> tune obviously more of a slow at you

<font color="#E5E5E5">okay sure</font> is there one that maybe spans the neck a little bit where<font color="#CCCCCC"> you can go right</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font> kind of thing very good yeah let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> do it</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">again fun too</font> I<font color="#CCCCCC"> noticed again did you do that that</font>

minor major third thing where you're playing the<font color="#E5E5E5"> C natural here over</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the a</font> and then you go into<font color="#E5E5E5"> the C sharp would</font> she do that a lot of<font color="#CCCCCC"> your claim look</font> I've got I've got a good one for this is right when I did at the<font color="#CCCCCC"> end of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> Salt</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">Creek great in my album their way it's</font> the<font color="#E5E5E5"> same length killer i'll be able to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">remember that I'm noticed in your</font> soloing that you sometimes do a real neat rhythmic figure where it's kind of a quazy chicken pickin move where you<font color="#CCCCCC"> uh</font>

you swallow three notes and<font color="#E5E5E5"> then and</font> then play a full one like kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font> something<font color="#E5E5E5"> like</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that yeah if</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you could uh</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">oh uh p yeah i've incorporated it</font> incorporated out a lot over the years yes nothing he<font color="#E5E5E5"> cam I got it from Don</font>

rich buckaroos you know he did it I think I think<font color="#E5E5E5"> the track the school</font> chicken Pig so what you're doing is you're approaching the bottom know you're playing sixth and you're approaching the bottom note

chromatically and using it<font color="#E5E5E5"> as</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a with a</font> triplet you're<font color="#E5E5E5"> just basically running kind of a</font> scale down but yeah that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> it simplified</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">ray yeah so what do you do with your</font> right hand to give it that that rope

clucking sound well I'm you mute<font color="#E5E5E5"> sup</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm</font> using<font color="#CCCCCC"> them using those I'm letting the</font> top note ring and you and I also noticed that you're plucking the top note with rather than with a pic yeah yeah which makes your lap you know with a little

finger with a little finger how would <font color="#CCCCCC">you use this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> approach in your own style</font> where you could combine it with with some other things and like a run uh a spin<font color="#E5E5E5"> soccer i will use in</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> rock singh</font> occasionally yeah i see i tend<font color="#CCCCCC"> to if i'm</font>

doing<font color="#E5E5E5"> wrong I'll tend to do it more on</font> one know what warm more on one note just too good that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> really neat accent</font> to them and you<font color="#E5E5E5"> do the same thing and</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">you pluck the the top note with your</font> maybe you can run that knows<font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> riff</font>

up again like Oh I've also noticed in some of your playing that you use tenths which is you <font color="#CCCCCC">you would play a bass note and then a</font> third an octave away and run scales up

and down you show<font color="#CCCCCC"> that yeah I'm always</font> like sound of that ad yeah ever<font color="#E5E5E5"> since I</font> heard shit i can really yeah let's look at the shape some of the shapes that you play there there's a basic a chord and then when you play

<font color="#CCCCCC">okay so there you're</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> playing the be with</font> your first finger on<font color="#CCCCCC"> the fifth string</font> and the D natural with your pinkie on the second string and are you you're picking that low notice with a pic and the high note is with mm-hmm when my

ring finger with your ring finger great and then you just move that up a whole step and you get a c-sharp minor sound and there you get a d-major sound and that's you're playing the<font color="#E5E5E5"> D with your</font> first finger in the f-sharp with your

fourth finger same fingering each time you know the exit right and there's an e that's an F sharp minor well actually<font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font> see I<font color="#E5E5E5"> think of that as a d is it oh</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">really over the decoys oh great okay</font> Sally right so that would be a d over an

<font color="#E5E5E5">f-sharp base because that there at that</font> position that the third is in in<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> base<font color="#E5E5E5"> is innovation so ya de being again</font> and then you play and then you play Annie using that same fingering with the third the base in this<font color="#E5E5E5"> case you sharpen</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">your base right and then there's an A</font> with it that's great could you run<font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font> down again please thank you but so that's just a major scale harmonizing yes yeah you can get<font color="#E5E5E5"> some really nice</font> neither for ya check used to do a lot of

that yourself yeah it's a master of that yeah you did kind of something in ito were you uh yeah I'll carried on Dan all right yeah so what we have there we haven't that's that's an a so yesterday and that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> the same thing</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in a with a</font>

g-sharp with a third and a base yeah and then there's a d with the third and abase also with the<font color="#CCCCCC"> f-sharp</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is that how</font> you<font color="#E5E5E5"> see it or</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> DS yeah yeah I'm thinking</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">of that as a decoy as an E chord right</font> so let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> just take that up your scale</font>

there and on<font color="#CCCCCC"> the lower court</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> okay</font> skyline e CA and it's a B C sharp minor <font color="#CCCCCC">too</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> okay it's the same thing as on the</font> the middle two strings would you do it on the on the Ian on the<font color="#CCCCCC"> g string let's</font> let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> run that slowly again so that's</font>

okay right now you see that<font color="#E5E5E5"> as an a with</font> a c-sharp in the base<font color="#E5E5E5"> right and then</font> there's a<font color="#CCCCCC"> be with a d sharp in the base</font> and<font color="#E5E5E5"> there's a neat that's really neat</font> where would you use these kind of voicings and over a ballot or yeah

usually<font color="#CCCCCC"> yeah</font> I probably wouldn't play a whole thing a line like that but I just occasionally I'll just slip it in yeah in the context of you know it's good you know just something using in passing

<font color="#E5E5E5">uh yeah I don't stick around on one</font> thing for too long our minutes I'm gonna <font color="#E5E5E5">that's good or</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> bad you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> know it makes it</font> too I tend not to play too many signature licks that<font color="#E5E5E5"> way you know and</font> that's why you have a signature style

purchase that's why it's different you know but yeah um but it's just another weapon to have you in your arsenal or grab those kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of voice exam we've</font> always loved that<font color="#E5E5E5"> yeah that little</font> passage you<font color="#E5E5E5"> played before that I've also</font>

noticed that you use thirds and sixth and and those are very common and you're playing where you would play a run in thirds or a little passage in third so maybe<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can show</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> us that kind</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of thing</font> yeah anything ever so we're<font color="#CCCCCC"> in</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> G right</font>

now<font color="#CCCCCC"> okay so we have</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> being the d</font> with a second the first finger on the G and<font color="#CCCCCC"> the B strings okay and then we go to</font> see Andy and that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> what and is that how</font> you would play your third see what you wouldn't bar it you played it with your

third<font color="#CCCCCC"> and fourth fingers yeah this kind</font> of application i was playing it right <font color="#CCCCCC">iran yeah then you move</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that up a whole</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">step that shape to DNF sharp with your</font> third and<font color="#E5E5E5"> fourth years and then you have</font> eng with your first<font color="#E5E5E5"> and second fingers</font>

again and<font color="#CCCCCC"> then you pull you end up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> with</font> a<font color="#E5E5E5"> sixth so you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just ended your run in</font> thirds and it's a sea and that's a G there and you end the last<font color="#CCCCCC"> two are six</font> I guess I a lot to Chet Atkins because I mean listening to that I mean that's I

learned that<font color="#CCCCCC"> from you know there's old</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">donuts and record your brain just did</font> wonderful staff here with it with the <font color="#CCCCCC">old Bigsby is known is and that's a new</font> way of playing a<font color="#CCCCCC"> six there that that</font> shape where you played the<font color="#CCCCCC"> the be with</font>

your first finger and end the<font color="#CCCCCC"> gee I</font> guess<font color="#E5E5E5"> I swear country music I was a lot</font> to Hawaiian music really I think it sounds<font color="#E5E5E5"> the Y intermedia so let's play a</font> little Walt son maybe you could throw into thirds and six and<font color="#E5E5E5"> see what we</font>

could we come up with Oh I noticed<font color="#E5E5E5"> you were using a vibrato over</font> the<font color="#CCCCCC"> chords it made it sound yeah woman I</font> know I'd love to do that you know it will just grab a<font color="#E5E5E5"> chord let's grab</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">chord and just show the vibrato so</font> you're shaking<font color="#E5E5E5"> boner notes</font> I've noticed<font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you approach a lot of</font> your thirds um you might say chromatically where you would go from<font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font> safe cedar d you go that kind of thing

or<font color="#CCCCCC"> just show us a couple of moves like</font> that let's see that that that move right there we go that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> really neat</font> I mean<font color="#CCCCCC"> look like a city slicker shining</font> up too much de cotton<font color="#E5E5E5"> picker</font>

me where<font color="#E5E5E5"> I start</font> when the words and car just a country boy Oh Oh we talked my<font color="#E5E5E5"> kid</font>

in a fire bed rather be she we can on the style I'm just<font color="#E5E5E5"> a country boy</font> grab three more and

city slicker shining up to my shoe I'm just a pickle find the right hand car I'm just a<font color="#E5E5E5"> country boy</font> Oh Oh

Oh member Oh Oh Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh I've seen you do these kind of roles with when you play chords and you do <font color="#E5E5E5">that style were you alternate and then</font>

you do the roles with your with the other fingers of your right hand oh yeah we're<font color="#CCCCCC"> not turning into</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> more more like a</font> banjo right then I mean<font color="#E5E5E5"> I've trying to limit eight</font> the band yet really but not being<font color="#E5E5E5"> able</font>

to<font color="#CCCCCC"> use a son Peck</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> again and yet really</font> able<font color="#E5E5E5"> to get get on with it you know I</font> figured out a way<font color="#CCCCCC"> of alternating the the</font> flat picking the fingers you have<font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">show us that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> banjo pattern that classic</font> one in G

ok so you so you're picking<font color="#E5E5E5"> with the thumb and</font> then with a flat pick and<font color="#E5E5E5"> okay we I'm sorry</font> with a flat pick<font color="#E5E5E5"> you're picking and then</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">hitting the you're holding the the G</font>

with your third finger on<font color="#CCCCCC"> the fourth</font> string then the G on the<font color="#E5E5E5"> on the third</font> string is open and you're<font color="#CCCCCC"> holding a D on</font> the second string with your first finger and you're<font color="#E5E5E5"> going pick ring finger and</font> middle finger

right and<font color="#E5E5E5"> then i'm using a little thing</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">or not the rainbow the little finger</font> and that's the same the same pattern <font color="#E5E5E5">now i'm alternating there</font> i'm<font color="#E5E5E5"> using the pic on on the second and</font> the third string there

you can just go<font color="#CCCCCC"> back and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> forth it is</font> whatever feels comfortable yeah me at<font color="#E5E5E5"> at</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the time right and that's yeah I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> can</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">never play the same thing twice you know</font> because i'll i'll start doing something and<font color="#E5E5E5"> i'll just go off in a different</font>

direction and maybe use slightly different fingering right to what i use before and it'll<font color="#E5E5E5"> take me in it in it in</font> a different direction yeah but the time is always still there in rock solid so what yes well I try<font color="#E5E5E5"> and yeah to maintain</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">you know I'm very very conscious of that</font> you<font color="#E5E5E5"> know I brought yeah I'm I'd oh I</font> really loved to be right next to the drum<font color="#CCCCCC"> gym just have it pounding away and</font> then it<font color="#CCCCCC"> just gives me the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> freedom to</font> write to move around yeah<font color="#E5E5E5"> you're noted</font>

for your for your solid time how you effortlessly keep the groove going throughout well i try to i'm on as<font color="#E5E5E5"> i say</font> yourself<font color="#E5E5E5"> yeah i try to be very conscious</font> of that you<font color="#E5E5E5"> know but i play if if i'm</font> having a tough time hearing that that

pulse right and i find i played very stiff<font color="#CCCCCC"> and right as</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> i'm trying to keep</font> played at that pulse yeah and and play around with it and it just doesn't <font color="#CCCCCC">happen you know but when i've got</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> freedom to to stretch out you know get

it it's a lot easier for<font color="#E5E5E5"> me yeah a real</font> common kind of progression that I've seen<font color="#E5E5E5"> you do I believe in the end at the</font> end of country boy where you go from you go from E to a to d 2g and you use a lot <font color="#CCCCCC">of these shapes would you mind running</font>

the progression using these chord shapes sure right Oh that's great Oh you

you No that was<font color="#E5E5E5"> really neat stuff that you</font> played maybe you can go<font color="#CCCCCC"> over some of</font> these chord shapes that uh that you just played especially I noticed<font color="#E5E5E5"> you moving</font>

this<font color="#E5E5E5"> shape where you play to open</font> strings yeah let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> look at that that's</font> uh you played that<font color="#E5E5E5"> over an e 7th chord</font> right yeah yeah but I was you<font color="#E5E5E5"> know just</font> by moving that down a semitone at the time it'll it'll work with that sequence

right a semitone being a half step yeah <font color="#CCCCCC">oh let's just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> take a look at that cord</font> so you're playing the the G sharp with your first finger the D with your second finger and then the B is the open string and E is open and that gives you a

straight east 7th chord and then over the a<font color="#CCCCCC"> 7th you move down a half step</font> and you get the g with your first finger the<font color="#E5E5E5"> c-sharp with your second finger the</font> be in the ER open so that functions as an a<font color="#CCCCCC"> 9 chord because the bees the nine</font>

and the cord you move that<font color="#E5E5E5"> down again a</font> half step that's d13 where you got the third the f-sharp with your first finger the flat seventh the sea with your second finger the open be functions as a 13 and<font color="#E5E5E5"> the e functions is the 9 and then</font>

we go to this is another kind of<font color="#E5E5E5"> G 13th</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">cord the F natural is the flat seventh</font> the B is the third and then you double the be the open beyond the B string and the e functions as a<font color="#CCCCCC"> thirteenth well</font> justjust for<font color="#E5E5E5"> someone who's just starting</font>

out on this<font color="#CCCCCC"> roll a bit you'd be really</font> neat if we could just yeah you you that's great let me set up<font color="#E5E5E5"> a real slow groove and</font>

maybe that'll that'll help you play it slowly cuz people are just dying to find out these kind of moves<font color="#E5E5E5"> okay</font> wait for another one kid guy you you

just one is simpler<font color="#CCCCCC"> as Lee</font> you let's try playing that faster so<font color="#CCCCCC"> we get</font> the idea what that sounds like<font color="#E5E5E5"> an oasis</font> simple because<font color="#E5E5E5"> your honor using 33</font> p

I right there's<font color="#E5E5E5"> one other place where you</font> do<font color="#E5E5E5"> that move by seen you do it and</font> that's like around the<font color="#CCCCCC"> 12th fret I</font> believe I've seen you do that yeah<font color="#CCCCCC"> we're</font> you<font color="#E5E5E5"> under that yeah</font>

now the neat thing is you can probably combine the patterns<font color="#E5E5E5"> that you play</font> around the 12th fret and the patterns who play around the<font color="#CCCCCC"> 5th fret as well</font> right you can you<font color="#E5E5E5"> can slide those down</font> chromatically and then do the<font color="#CCCCCC"> same thing</font>

of the change yeah you Oh yeah the reason i do that the one on the 5th fret different is because<font color="#E5E5E5"> i know</font> that<font color="#CCCCCC"> i've got that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> extra open string ray</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">i can utilize yeah that's why i tend to</font> put in a few more notes in that's well that one is a little more complicated because I know I've got an extra string to play<font color="#E5E5E5"> right now that that</font> would make a perfect exercise for

someone just wanting to<font color="#E5E5E5"> get their feet</font> wet learning the banjo<font color="#E5E5E5"> rolls and stuff</font> and learning to play over that kind of change it's it's it's great another little thing I I had<font color="#E5E5E5"> sometimes it said</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">like just that that's great</font>

Oh you just hammering on the the high in case of the first<font color="#CCCCCC"> or the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> high G sharp</font> with your pinky right yeah and<font color="#CCCCCC"> then the</font> genus right so the shape remains constant you're just moving it down<font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font>

half yeah I've seen also<font color="#CCCCCC"> you do something</font> where you where you play the you play like an e here and then you go to the AE oh yeah and<font color="#CCCCCC"> they play this deep yeah</font> Oh

you you me there's another riff that you played that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'd like you to maybe dissect for</font> us it kind of involves the same thing

<font color="#E5E5E5">that kind of opened string role / run</font> and that's what you do in the beginning of t-bird to Vegas and intro yeah <font color="#E5E5E5">we can play that at half speed it would</font> make millions of people happy that's great so basically you're doing

<font color="#E5E5E5">that backwards</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> roll idea again we are</font> playing the same for the first part<font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the run you're playing the D with a pic</font> and then the<font color="#E5E5E5"> G with your middle finger</font> and then<font color="#E5E5E5"> playing the i'm sorry the deal</font> with a pink the f with a middle finger

then the deal with a pic again and then backwards rolling the open e with your <font color="#E5E5E5">pinky the the f with your middle finger</font> and then the deal with the pic again right this is that<font color="#E5E5E5"> basically kind of the</font> foundation of<font color="#E5E5E5"> the pattern if you use</font>

throughout<font color="#CCCCCC"> the whole</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> issue pretty much</font> that's just<font color="#E5E5E5"> a backward roll in the</font> second point it's tricky<font color="#CCCCCC"> the Platts ya up to tempo</font> yeah let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> do the second makes more</font> sense yeah I know let's<font color="#E5E5E5"> listen to a</font>

second part of that look again let's do the second we're in that way okay and<font color="#E5E5E5"> then go</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on to the next part</font> it's a shape we discussed earlier<font color="#E5E5E5"> yeah</font> and there was<font color="#CCCCCC"> just a</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> roll there right</font> so the<font color="#E5E5E5"> first is</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just an FYI ad right</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">they're using an open g string there</font> with uh with the E and the a<font color="#E5E5E5"> ok whoa are</font> you are you hammering the aim of the over the g the opening today right yeah <font color="#CCCCCC">ok I didn't realize I was doing that</font> line cool and then you're playing the

stop the<font color="#E5E5E5"> other stop to be and the open D</font> string and then and then resolving to the G<font color="#CCCCCC"> ok so let's catch that whole intro</font> now up to tempo you and

I guess we should talk about<font color="#E5E5E5"> another</font> facet and<font color="#E5E5E5"> country guitar playing which</font> is spending mm-hmm maybe you could show <font color="#CCCCCC">us some common</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> bends that you use when</font> you're not using the be polar okay well I mean that the basic things I learned

in<font color="#E5E5E5"> six seasons paper from James Burton</font> right now mm-hmm which<font color="#E5E5E5"> are a basic blues</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">licks but they work over our country</font> changing and bending up to certain nose now that's that's like a real common country<font color="#CCCCCC"> right maybe you can slow that</font>

down a little bit so you're bending the knee<font color="#CCCCCC"> to the C sharp and so you're</font> hinting it you're actually playing<font color="#CCCCCC"> its</font> if you were playing an a triad you're bending the second to the third yeah I see you really<font color="#E5E5E5"> cool your thumb over the</font>

neck to<font color="#E5E5E5"> you do that for support i guess</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">they're you're just spending the fourth</font> of the fifth the<font color="#E5E5E5"> DP that's another</font> beautiful been there that's kind of a <font color="#E5E5E5">steal yeah I'm better than 11 noticed a</font> whole step in another nother hasta

actually you're going from<font color="#E5E5E5"> so it's like</font> going from D to G right let's look at <font color="#E5E5E5">that pretty closely so you're bending</font> the D up to<font color="#CCCCCC"> an E</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and the F sharp to a</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">geez you're kind of going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to a g6 sound</font> I'm also seen you banned from the 7th to

the<font color="#E5E5E5"> root when you're holding the third</font> like say if you're an<font color="#CCCCCC"> A you'd be doing</font> this kind of thing oh yeah beautiful let's look at your<font color="#CCCCCC"> baby so you're</font> holding the<font color="#CCCCCC"> C sharp with your search</font> finger and bending G up to an a

releasing and then going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> a with</font> your second finger oh and then and then you're playing third you're playing right he flat G to be F sharp right right so there were getting idea of say the<font color="#CCCCCC"> way</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you combine</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> all the elements to</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">make your own style like you said you</font> don't ever hang on one thing too much there you bend up a little bit you went back<font color="#CCCCCC"> to the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> thirds and then you end it</font> on a<font color="#E5E5E5"> little scale thing that has that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">kind of fanfare effect that Chuck Berry</font>

right introducing nothing just taking it a little further yeah some bends in there a<font color="#E5E5E5"> common move in country a common</font> progression is the one to the four chord the G to<font color="#CCCCCC"> the sea for example we're in</font> the key of<font color="#CCCCCC"> g and i know that in country</font>

voice leading is very important it doesn't<font color="#E5E5E5"> sound good to jump from one</font> position all<font color="#CCCCCC"> the way up the neck to</font> another position a lot<font color="#CCCCCC"> of people try</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font> cop that pedal steel sound where you have a very

very smooth type of voice leading good can you show us how you approach<font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font> from the one to the four chord if you're <font color="#E5E5E5">thinking quarterly I'd probably do it</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">with a pull string oh really well you</font> can do it<font color="#E5E5E5"> like this that's pulling there</font>

so what we have is a G triad in the seventh position you're playing the G with a<font color="#CCCCCC"> pinky on the fifth string the be</font> with your third finger<font color="#E5E5E5"> on the fourth</font> string and the D with your first finger on<font color="#E5E5E5"> the 3rd string and then you're</font>

bending I'm learning there the the the <font color="#E5E5E5">third and fourth string I've been the</font> third string atone step right depending <font color="#E5E5E5">the d3 yeah on our band day to be to a C</font> and you're betting in both at the same time so getting a G to see movement

sounds just like a pedal steel guitar well yeah I used to do it a lot but I don't turn I tend not to do it so much <font color="#CCCCCC">now me I used</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to use on my old teller</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">telly I hadn't lighter strings and it</font> was easier<font color="#CCCCCC"> to get those kind</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of bends</font>

you know yeah but till I sacrifice that for<font color="#E5E5E5"> the for the sound i prefer on they</font> had a slightly heavier gauge stray so<font color="#CCCCCC"> i</font> tend not to do those kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of bends</font> anymore you know<font color="#CCCCCC"> i I've gotten so used</font> to using a pull string to do those come

right kind of<font color="#E5E5E5"> bends and there's more</font> chance of getting them in<font color="#E5E5E5"> cheering you</font> know because that you can't always that's it's not always quite Hannibal let's see that there what you<font color="#CCCCCC"> just did</font> well that's kind of let's face lasix

till late that's great nobody<font color="#E5E5E5"> gonna make me shout ain't nobody</font> gonna put me out nobody on me do I literally bring up gonna make me save me

we do the wrong ticket my katie nicole boy's dream Oh Oh in me

me mhm <font color="#E5E5E5">you in</font> nobody gonna make me<font color="#E5E5E5"> bigger</font> ain't nobody gonna make do I leave

gonna make me sick make me do we just saw this really neat tune called sweet little Lisa that you played and you were using this guitar and I believe it's equipped with<font color="#CCCCCC"> a with</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the thing</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">called a string vendor a pole Venga</font>

Venga pull strings<font color="#E5E5E5"> rayban de it's got a</font> number of nine yeah okay<font color="#E5E5E5"> so you gonna</font> tell<font color="#CCCCCC"> us a little bit about it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> history<font color="#E5E5E5"> about it well I mean yeah I'll</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">try I mean this particular idea was I</font> believe was first put together by am

Jean Parsons and Clarence white the method of using it the strap with a system of like a lever and a long spring you know to endure turning this little gadget here which actually raises the the second string so<font color="#E5E5E5"> without playing the</font>

string you can actually<font color="#CCCCCC"> bend it up a</font> whole and you adjust as a little hole here and it you can stick an Allen wrench through there and adjust the stop point of that or they like the the gene<font color="#E5E5E5"> Parsons one</font>

there's a<font color="#E5E5E5"> little nulled not there you</font> can turn yeah a number<font color="#E5E5E5"> of ways you can</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">do</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> then there are a number of them on</font> the market now you know yeah but term I <font color="#CCCCCC">I started out using this particular type</font> you know with the strap button here yeah

and it feels<font color="#E5E5E5"> comfortable you know so</font> I've stuck with it<font color="#E5E5E5"> you know they're</font> there are others in like palm pedals right I like a big speed mm-hmm kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font> contraption which does the same thing and like hip shot which is like a lever

<font color="#E5E5E5">that comes out of the back of the guitar</font> and you pull against it like that you know and they all work fine you know but <font color="#E5E5E5">and they all work on the B string right</font> yeah that seems to be the most usable and and that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> to get the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the sound of a</font>

pedal steel the oil hate it yeah that'll <font color="#E5E5E5">steal in it then Carl Perkins have</font> something like that<font color="#CCCCCC"> too yeah well Oh hot</font> I asked the first<font color="#E5E5E5"> time I ever saw that</font> idea use you<font color="#CCCCCC"> know I saw call in the</font> early<font color="#CCCCCC"> sixties and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> he had a i think it</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">was</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> like a gibson es 53 pick up right</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">gibson</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you know and he had a little bent</font> piece of<font color="#E5E5E5"> y know with</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> sticky tape on it</font> and I think<font color="#E5E5E5"> maybe there was spring under</font> it and maybe it's just attention in the spring but he could actually press his

stomach<font color="#CCCCCC"> inst it and raise it the Easter</font> you know there's a second string of town you know but he<font color="#E5E5E5"> was doing it with you stop right</font> of course it was<font color="#CCCCCC"> limited to that</font> position in with his head yeah he got

the<font color="#E5E5E5"> D couldn't hit it right that's right</font> but I mean<font color="#CCCCCC"> he was uh he was on the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> right</font> track there you know I don't<font color="#E5E5E5"> know if if</font> he got any idea from someone else but it was a neat idea for getting those country legs yeah there's a<font color="#E5E5E5"> lot of</font>

guitar players I really try to mimic the <font color="#E5E5E5">sound of a pedal steel conventionally</font> and uh no I used to do it well try to do it yeah but once you get into using one of these things<font color="#E5E5E5"> you know it just a lot</font> cleaner yes yeah you know you know it's

gonna be in tune every time now if you were trying<font color="#E5E5E5"> to hear you know you write</font> guarantee you're gonna bend it right each time you know mm-hmm it's a lot<font color="#CCCCCC"> of fun of course when</font> you first get it you're<font color="#CCCCCC"> trying to you</font>

know you're trying everything you do you want to utilize it yeah<font color="#E5E5E5"> but don't seeing</font> a lot of<font color="#E5E5E5"> people do that yes jimmy page</font> using his you<font color="#E5E5E5"> know it's a long time ago</font> when you first got it and it<font color="#E5E5E5"> was really</font> had one too huh oh yeah he has a couple

<font color="#E5E5E5">yeah Dave Evans Oh what 12 you know now</font> that you mention it I remember<font color="#E5E5E5"> him</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> doing</font> a pedal steel type effect on one on one led zeppelin tune yeah Warren if he had it back then all he did was it yeah maybe maybe was actually playing that'll

steal them<font color="#CCCCCC"> but you know we listen to the</font> same guys when we were growing up you know so I'm sure he's right even though he's one wouldn't think of him as a country player<font color="#E5E5E5"> i'm sure he I'm sure he</font> was listening<font color="#E5E5E5"> to that d to those country</font>

players like<font color="#CCCCCC"> I did in there</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I was</font> wondering<font color="#CCCCCC"> if we did this one Bend</font> earlier this one little lick earlier and maybe you<font color="#E5E5E5"> can compare the sound of it</font> with a conventional and I think we did <font color="#E5E5E5">this kind of thing well we have 270 and</font>

see how much cleaner yeah I thought<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'd</font> love to do that with a pull string and you can forget<font color="#E5E5E5"> about the you know the</font> left hand fingering concentrate on the on the on the on the sound of it really and getting this staccato effect and you

know<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can really do if you do</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> Oliver</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">sweet a little Lisa two duets do a lot</font> of that slinky bend and yeah and it can you know it's in tune you can do it as fast and slow slow as you want that's great yes it's in the effect and

<font color="#E5E5E5">you use it in a really neat way to</font> because I've actually<font color="#E5E5E5"> you played a</font> ballad using the bender and the lyrical way you use it it actually it was beautiful it sounded like a pedal steel No thank you<font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> mean I try I try to use</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">it like that you know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I mean I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> i</font> started<font color="#E5E5E5"> out trying to copy a mm-hmm</font> pedal steel and you know there's no way you can really duplicate yeah although um Phil boy I don't have you heard about <font color="#E5E5E5">a plaque or fuel boy he's no longer with</font>

us unfortunately<font color="#E5E5E5"> Eve's a great play yeah</font> I first heard him playing<font color="#CCCCCC"> at Le you know</font> but in at one time he had like a Les Paul with six cables coming out to six petals on really under you could just do amazing things with the<font color="#CCCCCC"> guitar and we</font>

just sounded like<font color="#E5E5E5"> a steal is he on any</font> records or anything or he did<font color="#E5E5E5"> he did a</font> few yeah are they stolen<font color="#E5E5E5"> print would you</font> know<font color="#E5E5E5"> cos all right</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> no you can find him</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">yeah don't worry yeah hey I ugh he was a</font> monstrous player Wow favorites you know

yeah but he took it<font color="#E5E5E5"> to its mm-hmm</font> father's people of it yeah and that was too far for me<font color="#E5E5E5"> you know i mean up there</font> there are other gadgets<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can get to</font> it you know to to bend other strings but that I think<font color="#CCCCCC"> just the second string is</font>

enough in here cuz I like to mm-hmm not to get into distracted from all the other things i do you know so<font color="#CCCCCC"> it's just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">nice to you know do that now and again</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">if I if I think I if I had more gadgets</font> on there you know it would be to

distract right now this can be distracting enough how about the Chuck Berry to know Chuck Berry tune mm-hmm oh yeah that's a nice effect you can get that<font color="#E5E5E5"> to Memphis Tenn</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it's yeah</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> electr an</font> auntie son with<font color="#E5E5E5"> him and you</font>

you sound really ensuring yeah that's really<font color="#E5E5E5"> neat that kind of the chime</font> effects yes really cool works well yeah I also noticed like you would you enough say like holding a<font color="#CCCCCC"> 9 chord and then the</font> end of the deep end yeah or bend the

not like on the<font color="#CCCCCC"> seventh fret yeah weird</font> word when<font color="#CCCCCC"> you hold it down here on the</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">seventh fret yeah that kind of thing</font> yeah them<font color="#E5E5E5"> and then you also like where</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">you would bar the coordinate and then</font> into the third is like a real yeah<font color="#E5E5E5"> well</font>

you have to think flat all the time on <font color="#E5E5E5">that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> one yeah second string</font> I yeah it's on you know<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can get</font> carried away with it Oh

Oh ok Oh you Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh hmm Oh me

I
