Totally Guitars Weekly Update February 25, 2022
February 25, 2022
Today I had some songs running through my head that used some interesting chord voicings, which led me to a few theory tips. I started with sliding a C chord up and down the neck to see what frets it sounded good at. This brought up some talk about Steve Howe and his applying it to a part of Starship Trooper ( I mistakenly referenced All Good People in the video), as well as the few songs like Melissa that use sliding ‘E’ shapes.
Once The Allman Brothers door was open, I went into some of the licks and fills in Blue Sky, and continued with a sad story on this week’s intended lesson, In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed. Due to tech problems with our lesson builder, the lesson did not get posted after I finished it. I took the opportunity to teach a bit of it in today’s Update. I hope you can follow some of the tips. But if not, rest assured it will be up and running as soon as we sort out the tech demons.
See you next week,
