This is one of the most unusual finds I’ve ever come across, slide or otherwise, when it comes to a certain key being “just right” within the context of what we are playing and experimenting with.

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 an important technique that’s sort of a combination between the Dobro sound and the “upright” slide sound. The creation of the necessary harmonies is accomplished by what I call slide “tilting,” or angling to keep from hitting the other open strings we need to ring and sustain.

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.
