Another great viewer request featuring an obscure R. L. Burnside song. I had to create a new tuning in order to play it... and I love it!
First, here's the original song. You'll notice in my lesson that I tweaked the feel of the song a little bit. This is sometimes necessary when converting a 6-string guitar riff over to 3-string slide.
R. L. played the original version in the key of C#minor...or somewhere near that. (He probably didn't use a tuner.) I have arranged the song for Cminor using a new tuning that is very similar to Open G: G Eb G. I call this tuning 'C Minor Implied.'
To get this tuning, simply take your Open G 3-string cigar box guitar and tune the middle string up to Eb.
Here's the lesson. Enjoy!
Excellent tutorial Shane. I’ll be trying it for sure.
