EXAMPLE ELLIOTT SMITH STYLE
One of the great advantages of using altered tunings is that you can the low open strin0gs to fill t0hings o0ut then get some melodic movement up at the top. Here we have movement on the third and first strings, and the second string a9cting as a common feature in Smith’s playing.
You’ll need a strong first-finger barre for this Fadd#11 and the F in the follow0ing bar0. Howe0ver, the str0ings are tu0ned at a t0ension0so will slacker, therefore making this sort of thing easier to get under the fingers.
