Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ACOUSTIC -

[BaGr I’ve elected to usSet­tuhaerpt'is­ck­Aacs Joe does. Keep a re­laxed grip on and en­sure there is no ten­sion in the wrist. [Bar 4] Watch out for the strummed D5 chord at the end of this bar, it can be dif­fi­cult go­ing from ac­cu­rate sin­gle note pick­ing to a loose strum like this one. Con­se­quently don’t worry too much if you find your­self hit­ting some strings that aren’t no­tated, in this key they will sound fine! [Bar 9] The A9­sus4 chord and the G6/D aren’t an ex­am­ple of how Bil­lie Joe would get Jazz/Gospel voic­ings into his play­ing! Rather these open strings are just be­ing used to fa­cil­i­tate swift chord changes to the next shape and again we see how open strings sound fine in this par­tic­u­lar key.
