Tony helps to expand the territory on the fretboard comfortably with some lessons on playing up the neck. In this lesson Tony teaches the tune "Skip to My Lou," further pushing into new territory up the fretboard.
- Lets continue right now and do a little bit of…Skip To My Lou.…And Skip To My Lou, we'll also be working on…mostly on the first, second and fifth strings.…And Earl does this a lot,…because those strings are under a little more tension.…(tuning banjo)…Give it a sharper crisper sound.…So Skip To My Lou.…("Skip To My Lou")…So I'll slow it down…and then talk about what's going on here.…
("Skip To My Lou")…Such a standard tune, but it's actually very pretty.…("Skip To My Lou")…So we're still working off this D position, G chord up here.…
I have (mumbles) on the first and index on the second.…And instead of using forward rolls…as I was with Boil Them Cabbage Down…I'm using...…("Skip To My Lou")…the Osborne roll throughout.…And then I just slide the ring finger down…to the fifth fret of the first string.…And the index slides too,…but instead of being one fret apart here,…they're two frets apart down here.…The index goes to the third fret of the second string.…Back to this.…
And this is your barred G chord,…the same as the open position,…
