EXAMPLE1 Bernie Leadon Style Blue­grass

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | COUNTRY ROCK -

This is the kind of play­ing you’ll hear from Bernie at the end of Take It Easy – though in the ab­sence of a banjo, I’ve used a Fender Tele­caster with some com­pres­sion. The repet­i­tive high Gs at the top are a tip of the hat to­ward the type of banjo Bernie would have used, with an open high G (fifth string), played by the thumb. As well as the com­pres­sion (which helps) aim to play as evenly as you can, not let­ting the low or high end dom­i­nate.
