Thank you Dan for your comment. I started playing guitar in the late 70s and in addition to teaching music, I am also a certified teacher in Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung. http://youtu.be/Rt4dX7gSMY4 Theory is great stuff. A simple concept when applied to the guitar can uncover endless possibilities. It can be confusing and challenging at times, but well worth the effort. As you fit the pieces of the puzzle together, your vision becomes clearer and broad. Enjoy your practice.
Sorry Dan about the delayed response. I have way too many sites on the net. LOL Thank you for your comment. I bought the shirt in the parking lot after seeing the 2005/6, A Bigger Bang Tour concert. Ya, the Stones Rule! Enjoy.
Hello Dan, Thank you for the concern. All is well. I have been working on 6 string videos lately and the new series of Gospel lessons. In general, here and on CBN I try only to post CBG related videos. I've been posting more regular and resonator guitar videos lately on youtube and facebook, so this accounts for my disappearance. Hope all is well with you too. Enjoy, Keni Lee
Hawaiian Slack Key is very similar to the Delta Blues style. They utilize open tunings (They call Open G Tuning, Taro Patch Tuning) and use an alternating bass while picking out notes on the treble strings. I always wanted to take the time to learn a few of the tradtional pieces. I believe they do arrange these pieces for 4 string uke too. It is quite possibe the early Hawaiian lap style of guitar had an influence on the development of the bottleneck slide style. During the 1920 / 30s, exotic performers traveled up and down the Mississippi River entertaining on Paddle boats / Show boats. Ya, real pretty stuff. Enjoy, Keni Lee
