Finding my way around an open G fretboard

Friday, July 26, 2013

It can be funny how humbling the learning curve is on an instrument that has so many similarities to what i have been playing the past 12 years, but is still so different an unique.


When it comes to chords and rolls, that isn't too hard. It just takes repetitive practice with boring techniques (forward roll, reverse roll etc...)

With the GBDGBD tuning though, am running into a lot of holes in the scales as i try to solo with other players. The G and D strings sounds great, but when i try to play single notes in a scale adding the B string (especially on the high side) it is harder to find where it corresponds to the other strings.



Any tips? Desire to commiserate with me?

Just a 28 year old dude living in the mountains of Arizona. Trying to find a new sound in a town of acoustic pickers. Love the unique way that the Reso can change standard tunes. Still putting the pieces together on the fretboard and hoping to find some great insight from this treasure trove of players. Would love to share and recieve new music reccomendations as well. I keep the Mel Bay dobro book close to me most times of the day (unless i am working) and am slowly trying to teach myself "correctly" to avoid bad habits down the road.
