EXAMPLE2 Al­bert Collins

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Al­bert Collins’s un­ortho­dox use of a capo is an in­ge­nious way to play open po­si­tion-style licks in a va­ri­ety of keys. Our back­ing track is in C, so the capo is placed at the 8th fret. The capo al­lows for an ex­plo­sive style and the use of bass notes to start phrases. Check out the tab and you will see how the use of mute strokes helps to heighten the at­tack of the melody notes. Finger­style pick­ing al­lows for greater fa­cil­ity across the strings and a very ex­pres­sive tone.
